Based on the old TV game show, Give Us a Clue; tonight we'll spend a fun hour trying to tell each other the name of a film, book, song, play or TV show without using words. It's not a competition and we'll make sure that everybody gets a go.
You can't get away from it; there's bound to be some Christmassy mimes tonight!
