Christmas in Shrewsbury is a magical time of year. The entire place comes alive with artistic, creative energy and the town square is decorated with careful attention. The last Farmer’s Market and Arts & Crafts Market of the year are inundated with cheerful shoppers in the lead-up to Christmas Eve.
Amongst all of this, one of our favourite December events is the Shrewsbury Winter Festival (9th and 10th December). For two days, Shrewsbury’s Quarry Park is filled with exhibitors, food and drink stalls, activities for the kids and an evening restaurant hosted in giant Nordic Tipis, aptly named the Avalanche Restaurant.
The pop-up Avalanche Restaurant & Bar runs from 7th-9th December, at the north end of the Quarry park, adjacent to the leisure centre. Back for a third consecutive year by popular demand, the restaurant offers more than just a meal. Begin the night with some canapés, before moving onto a delicious feast. For the meat-eaters; rich cuts of meat paired with various sauces and sides to give these classic dishes a contemporary spin. For the vegetarians, gone are the days of predictable nut roasts and risottos. Instead, why not try the much-loved Wellington dish with a vegetarian twist, and other delectable dishes to please the palette? This is all followed by a selection of ten different desserts. You’re welcomed to try every one.
Dinner is followed by a night of dancing and live music. Our bartenders at the cash pay bar will be serving you drinks all night long. Sit down with a drink and a marshmallow to roast around our open fires, or show your moves on the dance floor. Take home the memories by posing in our ski-gondola photobooth, complete with props. All of this in the warm and lavish comfort of our beautifully-decorated tipis.
All group sizes and special dietary requirements welcome. Bespoke packages for corporate Christmas parties are also available. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions.
