The event, which stretches over three weeks from December 1 to 22, offers festive food and drinks, marshmallow toasting by the indoor fire pit from Wednesday to Sunday with the addition of a visit from Santa on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

The teepees, with their cosy and unique atmosphere, make for a wonderful place to meet up with colleagues, friends and family during the run up to Christmas. Doors are open from 4pm to 11pm Wednesday to Friday and midday to 11pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Entry to the main teepee is free, children and four legged friends are very welcome. No bookings necessary. Santa will be in his grotto from 4pm to 7pm on Fridays and from midday to 5pm each Saturday and Sunday. The Grotto is £7 entry on the door which includes a gift from Santa of course.

Dan Lakin, managing director of BAR Events UK, said: "We're incredibly excited to be teaming up with our friends at Ribble Valley Catering for a third year to deliver this festive event. We welcomed around 8,000 visitors last December - the support we had was just incredible. We had people travel from as far as South Lincolnshire to spend an evening in the teepees and stay nearby. We're extremely passionate about using local suppliers and delivering this family friendly Christmas event to the town of Ilkley."
