If, like us, you shed a little tear when the Spinningfields stage was dismantled in time for winter, this might just cheer you up.
Manchester’s best outdoor drinking spot and live music venue has been replaced with a cosy hangout, providing all the same great entertainment, plus a few winter warming extras.
Serving hot cider, a winter barbecue and hearty festive roast with bread, dripping and all the trimmings The Oast House’s Curious Teepee is set to be a great place to hibernate this coming winter.
And if all this doesn’t sound like enough of a winter wonderland all this takes place around a glorious open fire, with blankets and skins on-hand to really warm the cockles.
A spooky evening of entertainment is already planned for Hallowe’en and if last year’s celebrations are anything to go by 2014 will be seen in with more than a bang as revellers flood the courtyard for the Oast House’s famous Auld Lang Syne celebrations.
But don’t worry, there’s no need to wait until then to stretch the vocal chords. The Teepee hosts live acts and sing-alongs every Thursday on Blacka Hire’s semi-permanent stage, where you can also keep your ears warm with one of the best soundsystems you’ll find this side of Lapland.
See you there!
