Kiss A Ginger Day – 12th January 2018

To shun any ideas of ‘Kick A Ginger Day’ (thanks, South Park), Kiss A Ginger Day was born, to celebrate redheads and allow the rest of humankind spend all day wanting to be just like them.

Head to Hot for Ginger’s ‘Kiss A Ginger Day’ party at central London’s Square Pig pub from 6.30pm to celebrate the rare gingerness of red hair with your fellow kin. The third edition of the event, Hot for Ginger will be joined by John Frieda, Redhead Day UK, and Ginger Parrot…so we’ll see you there! Keep your eyes peeled for goodie bags, t-shirts and games.

Entrance to the event is free, but make sure you RSVP to the event on Facebook.
