Channel your inner Father Noel Furlong!

From the first day of November, we’ve already been hearing it.

Yep, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has already been doing the rounds in shops and on playlists and, believe it or not, re-entering the iTunes Charts.

We know it is a little early, but admit it… that song is a total banger.

In fact, most Christmas songs are bangers. Which is why we’re very excited about this Christmas timed Caravan Karaoke kicking off in the Beatyard (retitled Yuleyard) on South Richmond Street in Dublin 2.

Kicking off from Thursday 22 November and running right through to Sunday 23 December, The Christmas Edition of Caravan Karaoke will feature a playlist of all your favourite Christmas tunes and numbers ones from over the years.

Get your Mariah on while helping the homeless, as a booking fee will be in lieu of a donation to The Simon Community.

Bookings are being taken for groups with various bookable options available. All group bookings (10 or more people) get complimentary mulled wine and mine pieces on arrival.

The Eatyard Stage will also be hosting a heap of yuletide festivities with food and food and drink talk, tastings and demos, Christmas crafting and live music and carolling across the weekends.

There’s also the fully covered and heated winter yard that will be overflowing festive cocktails, heated drinks (like mulled wine or hot whiskeys), and hot chocolates, as well as the usual mix of great food stalls.
