So, if you’re a proud cockapoo owner (or just LOVE them!) make sure you bring your cockapoo to this Christmas event to meet Santa Paws. You can get photos, tell him what your dog wants for Christmas… and Santa Paws will decide if your cockapoo is on the naughty or nice list this year. 

With lots of Christmas photo opps in place, and instagrammable moments, you’ll get plenty of cute photos to remember your experience. We’ve even borrowed Santa Paws’ Sleigh so your cockapoo can pose up a storm – perfect for their annual Christmas card.

Plus, you’ll be able to make lots of new friends, mingle and rub paws with lots of others cockapoos, tuck into some dog-friendly mince pies and show off the best Christmas jumpers and outfits. We just LOVE Christmas… and we know you’ll have the best time at this event. Let’s make it a happy, dog-filled Christmas this year…

This is the ultimate feel-good, dog-friendly event so if you’re looking for things to do with your pooch this Christmas, look no further! We’ll be at the beautiful Revolucion de Cuba all day on the 12th December with breed specific time slots. Cockapoo Cafe time slots will be at 10am and 12:30pm. You’ll find us taking over the entire restaurant floor and after your sessions ends you’re more than welcome to head on up to the upstairs bar where you can continue drinking, eating and being merry!

What a year we’ve had so why not treat you and your dog to the Cockapoo Cafe™. We have so many returning guests to our events because the dogs have the time of their lives. We have a saying here… if the dogs are happy, everyone’s happy! We love a great party so you’ll find our famous party atmosphere, lots of merriment, Christmas tunes and more. 

The Crafty Dog Co will also be hosting a mini market where you can pick up a Christmas present or two for your cockapoo. There are some funky and fabulous harnesses, collars and matching leads. Plus, lots more cute accessories and toys.

You can bring any well-behaved cockapoo (or just the right side of naughty!) – big or small, puppy or golden oldie.

We are also a super family-friendly event so bring the whole brood! Children love our event so if your child is cockapoo-obsessed this would make the perfect day out in the lead up to Christmas, or a fabulous Christmas gift experience. 


You don’t need to own cockapoo to come and enjoy the event and enjoy lots of doggy cuddles and licks. We welcome dog lovers to come and meet lots of adorable cockapoos, get to know the breed, have the opportunity to speak to their owners and – of course – enjoy lots of doggy therapy. Dog lover tickets always go fast so make sure you snap some up if you don’t want to miss out.


A super fun off-lead social experience, lots of attention from cockapoo-loving humans, the chance to make lots of friends and tuck into so many festive treats!

Your tickets cover entry to this event only but your cockapoo will get a delicious free festive Pupuccino worth £3.50 and they are welcome to do the sniff test and choose from a host of Christmas toppings including gingerbread crumble, cheesy pupcorn, sprinkles, doggy jazzies and more. We’ll be rolling out our Pop + Bark Pupuccino Bar so your dog can get the VIP treatment. 

There’ll also be a festive Doggy Bakery selling freshly baked Christmas Pupcakes, Mince Pies, Christmas Puds, Dognuts, Dog-friendly Gingerbread Cookies and lots more. Thanks to Rudi’s The Doggy Bakery, you can stock up on treats.

Meanwhile, Revolucion de Cuba will be serving festive dishes and delicious cocktails. Whether you fancy a full meal or a few beers, cocktail or two, or more than a few glasses of bubbly – you can tailor your experience to you and your party.

All well-behaved cockapoos are welcome, but there are some doggy do’s and dont’s:

  • Do bring your friendly, well socialised & vaccinated cockapoo
