We run lots of fantastic competitions for the parents and families of York. Check back here regularly to see what is on offer.
York’s favourite Christmas pop-up, THOR’S tipi bar, will once again make a welcome return to York city centre, running from 13th November 2019 right through until 1st January 2020. We’ve teamed up with Thors to offer 1 lucky family hot chocolates and winter food for a family of up to five.
Last year, the ever popular and highly acclaimed bar saw over 50,000 people visit this uniquely themed attraction that plays on York’s Viking heritage and still remains a firm fixture of the Christmas offering in the city.
“Mulled wine, log fires, hot cocoa….what’s not to love?” Secret London
From 10.00am on Wednesday 13th November in Parliament Square, THOR’S will once again open its doors and provide a cosy winter retreat for Christmas shoppers, visitors and families alike.
Two linked canvas tipis will form the bar, festooned with lighting and decked out with wooden tables and benches, cosy furs and an open fire pit, around which customers can soak up the Viking hygge. Inside, bespoke timber walls adorned with THOR’S very own Viking shields bring an additional Norse touch as well as adding to the venue’s quirkiness.
A brand-new drinks menu truly offers something for everyone. Hot and cold cocktails with a Christmas twist, beers from around the world and local ales and stouts are just a few of the new items on the menu. An extensive wine list, soft drinks and a non-alcoholic selection can also be discovered whilst festive favourites such as mulled wine and hot chocolate will ensure there is something to warm everyone’s cockles. Teas and coffees are also available to revive busy shoppers.
York’s favourite street food vendors, Shambles Kitchen, will be returning with a new cabin accessible to customers already inside the tipi, allowing them to order easily from the exciting Christmas savoury menu, while a private outdoor heated terrace hidden round the back, enables customers to soak up the festive atmosphere whilst watching the hustle and bustle in the Christmas market.
Maria Farrugia, Managing Director and Co-Founder of THOR’S, said “The team behind THOR’S are always proud to open the doors to the York bar as this is where it all began. We have kept things fresh once again with a real Christmas-themed menu and our increased capacity which we introduced last year keeps all our customers happy. Friends, families and even dogs are welcome under the twinkling canvas. We truly are Christmas in a cup!”
THOR’S tipi bar will be open from 10am to 11pm daily from 13 November 2019 through to 1st January 2020 (closed Christmas Day).
