Thousands of festive revellers got into the Santa spirit this weekend during the global ‘SantaCon’ fancy dress pub crawl.

The annual boozy gathering sees crowds of drinkers – all dressed as Father Christmas – descend on city centres worldwide.

SantaCon London, which raised cash for the ‘Christmas for Kids’ charity, saw Santas parade through the capital before the traditional end point at Trafalgar Square.

There were also SantaCon parades in Glasgow, Madrid, New York, and Los Angeles.
