The Crown Inn, Harbury once again, has released its own Christmas video to celebrate this festive season. This is the pub’s third festive music video and involves local musician Matt Neal performing a cover of Shaking Stevens hit ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’. The music video shows the guests enjoying drinks in the pub while the band perform live, and John and his team serving everyone behind the bar. This is something John and the pub have done for the last few years, and portrays a wonderful community pub.


Licensee, John Mortimer, said: “This is the third year we’ve done a Christmas video, instigated by our eldest daughter, and we like to get as many of our locals involved as possible. It helps drum up some festive spirit amongst the community and gets people talking about the business too. While the videos themselves aren’t specifically for charity, we do carry out a lot of fundraising work for The Cystic Fibrosis Trust during the holiday season which is something our regulars always get behind.”

The video is just part of the festivities at The Crown Inn this year. Licensee John and his team hold weekly quiz nights and recently held a Christmas themed quiz, where the local community come and put their festive knowledge to the test. There has also been an array of live music, which everyone has been able to sing and dance along to this festive period, including Matt Neal and Russ Toney.


However, they have saved the best till last, welcoming Santa on Thursday 23 December from 3-6pm for an early festive treat. Families in the Harbury area, are invited to come and meet Santa for the afternoon on his special visit to the pub. Children will have the opportunity to meet and talk with Santa, where he will also give them a toy and a few sweeties. Adults can also treat themselves to a delicious boozy hot chocolate. Tickets are £10 per child, and all the profits from this event along with other events being run by the pub this Christmas will be in aid of The Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
