New ‘Alpine Bar’ coming to Sheffield Christmas MarketPosted by: Ashley Birch
The bar will replace The Sleigh Bar and organisers say its going to be 'bigger' than ever
This year’s Sheffield Christmas Market will see its popular Sleigh Bar at the top of Fargate replaced with an even bigger Alpine Bar, run by an independent Sheffield company.
Julie Wilson of Percival Events, who run Sheffield’s Christmas Market, told VIBE: “Whilst we’ve loved having the Sleigh Bar with us, it’s become time for a change. We’ve got a brand new bar in that’s bigger, to accommodate more people.
“Every year we like to change things and the comments have been that the markets have been a bit samey, so we just wanted to mix things up a bit.
“Alpine bar is run by a small independent Sheffield company and we welcome any suggestions from people of what they would love to see.”
The popular Sleigh Bar has been a feature of the Sheffield’s Christmas Market for the past six years and organisers announced that it would not be returning to Sheffield via Facebook this morning.
They said: “Myself and the rest of the sleigh bar family are very sorry to have to announce we will no longer be attending Sheffield Christmas market due to the organisers of the event Percival events and markets.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our customers old and new for your loyal support over the past six years you have watched our family run bar grow from to strength to strength your custom has been greatly appreciated.”
