The Oast House confirms return of legendary Christmas tipi with twinkling lights and festive cocktails
The Oast House has confirmed that its legendary Christmas tipi draped in twinkling lights is set to return for the festive season.
And there’s really not long left to wait now before the magic arrives.
The popular Spinningfields venue’s winter tipi has played its part in brining the festive spirit to Manchester for the past 11 years now, so it’s fair to say it’s become something of an institution – and now, with the air getting nippier by the day, The Oast House has given Mancs the news they’ve been waiting for.
That’s right, The TeePee is back once again for another year, and it’s set to open for the festive season in just a couple of weeks time.
Complete with two roaring fires, twinkling fairy lights, faux fur throws, The Teepee will be made up of three tents joined together with a huge open hub, and is all sounding set to be a popular spot for locals and those who’ve finished a hard day at work during the colder months.
Set to reopen on Wednesday 11 October, and then staying open to festive revellers every day of the week throughout the winter, The Teepee is famed for its free live music, house-cooked food, and laidback warm and welcoming atmosphere.
There’ll be a mouthwatering street food menu, a selection of limited-edition winter cocktails, mulled wine, and festive hot chocolates, and, of course, a stage area set up for guests to dance the night away – with a packed lineup of live gigs all planned over the next few months.
Katsu chicken fries, Northern poutine with bone marrow gravy, Shorrock’s Lancashire cheese, chicken, or plant-based gyros, stacked burgers, hot wings, and hanging kebabs, are just some of the warming dishes you can tuck into from the street food menu.
There’ll also be a wide range of festive tipples also on offer to wash it all down with.
The TeePee reopens for 2023 on Wednesday 11 October.
The Oast House and The TeePee are then open every day 12 noon until late throughout the winter, and will continue hosting a packed roster of live musicians covering a range of genres – from pop and rock, to funk and soul, and so much more.
