TWO tipi tents have been installed in Salisbury city centre, as part of a "cosy" pop up bar at this year's Christmas Fayre.

Named Frost, the tipis are nestled in amongst the chalets and the ice rink in Guildhall Square.

Inside the tipis there are also log fires to keep away from the cold.

Local organisers Dave and Aimee Hancock say Frost is "the perfect pit stop" for a coffee in between exploring the Christmas Fayre, to grab a drink whilst waiting for your slot on the ice rink or for a festive get together with friends.

The tipis have been installed in partnership with Salisbury City Council.

Dave and Aimee add that Frost will not only operate as a bar offering hot and cold drinks, but will also be hosting an array of workshops, events and activities throughout the festive period – such as wreath making, decoration crafting to mead tasting.

They added: “We hope visitors to the Christmas Fayre venture in to warm up and enjoy what we’ve created.”

Joanna Wood, business manager at Salisbury City Council said: “The aim for the partnership and concept is to offer another exciting element to the experience of Salisbury Christmas Fayre and improve dwell time for residents and visitors alike.

"Driven by creating immersive, exciting and premium hospitality offerings within the city, Dave and Aimee were delighted to be offered the chance to be involved with the Christmas Fayre. Their intention is to hopefully deliver something that will help to not only encourage residents to stay and explore what Christmas in Salisbury has to offer, but also entice visitors to choose the city over other nearby popular Christmas market destinations.

Frost is open from November 30 to January 5, with hours from 12pm – 10pm (Sunday to Wednesday), 12pm – 11pm (Thursday to Saturday), and 12pm – 1am (New Year’s Eve). It will be closed on Christmas Day, New Years Day and for private bookings.
