Cosy Nordic tipi bar Bartipi is making a return to Flemingate for a third year. The festive pop-up features a roaring fire pit, festive lighting, cosy seating and a selection of festive tipples.
Jo Bridgeman, Flemingate Marketing and Events Manager, said: Rounding the evening off will be a fabulous fireworks display lasting around seven minutes, immediately followed by a grand finale performance by Little Chix – a great way to mark the countdown to Christmas.
The Flemingate Christmas event begins at 5pm and is due to close at 8pm. The lights switch-on is at 7.15pm, immediately followed by the seven-minute fireworks display.
