Hi there. If you are looking for recipes it is best to use recipe databases. Foodpickle is good for last minute cooking questions and emergencies when you need a quick answer. Foodpickle is U.S. based and most members are in the U.S. (but there are certainly U.K. members), many of us aren't familiar with some U.K. specialties. Many Christmas puddings need to be made weeks or months in advance, but I found this nice sounding one:

There are many good recipes out there - but most of them require you to marinate the fruit for several weeks, and then you can use either a pudding basin or cloth to boil the pudding for many hours and then dry the pudding and store for several weeks before reheating on the day of serving. I'd recommend starting a Christmas pudding in November.
