Santa Claus Pub Crawl for Charity 2017 | Wollongong, New South Wales | Saturday, 09. December 2017

The Santa Claus Pub Crawl is now in its 24th year!! It was originally started by a small group of friends as a means of raising some Christmas spirit – and having some fun at the same time.
This event is recognised as the longest continually run Santa Pub Crawl in the world and over 10,000 people are expected to attend this year.
Over $110,000 was raised in 2016!

The SCPC is also listed by NineMSN as one of the “Top Ten Pub Crawls in the World” http://lifestyle.ninemsn.com.au/schweppes/230271/worlds-best-pub-crawls.slideshow

*Multi-venue wristband - $30 – Green in colour – will only be sold online via our website – Valid until midnight at all participating venues - thesantaclauspubcrawl.com (sales managed through Tickets.com link), covers entry into ALL venues participating in SCPC subject to line-up and RSA (no door charge to pay at any of them), plus continuous entry on and off our shuttle buses throughout the evening, plus 2 x complimentary drink vouchers for NGH (valid before 3pm). This wristbands will be $40 on the day (if not sold out).

*Transport wristband – $10 -Red in colour - entry just to North Gong Hotel and use of shuttle bus – anyone wearing a red wristband would still need to pay any normal entry fee to nightclubs they wish to attend. Red wristbands will be sold at gates of NGH also on the day for $20.

Neither of the wristbands guarantee entry to a venue - you will still need to line-up to show ID, if they are full or to meet RSA requirements.

The AfterDark Party Buses will provide a shuttle service around all the involved venues – circulating from 4pm-3am.
Entry wristbands are required to hop-on the buses throughout the night.

Accommodation:
Funds will also be raised through accommodation venues donating a percentage of their room sales for the night. These venues include Mantra Wollongong, Novotel Wollongong, Adina Apartments, Pioneer Sands Towradgi, MarketView Hotel, KeiraView Accommodation and the Sage Hotel.
Use the Codeword “Santa2017” when making bookings for this donation to apply.

All money raised, along with all other donations, will go directly to provide assistance to disadvantaged children in the Illawarra through programs managed by the Salvation Army Wollongong.
