Christmas with a difference at Flemingate

A unique, family-owned, Beverley company is bringing a touch of Nordic glamour to Flemingate this Christmas, when they will erect a Swedish-built tipi tent, complete with open fire, bar area with seating and fairy lights to coincide with Beverley’s Christmas lights switch-on on Thursday November 23rd.

Sisters Michelle Bussey and Sam Robinson launched Boutipi, baed on the Grovehill Industrial Estate, in 2013 when Michelle was looking for unique venue ideas for her wedding. With the help of parents Robert and Carole Booty, the Beverley-based company was born and now has seven tipis and two smaller kung tents which are used as wedding and event venues.

After the lights switch-on, the Nordic-themed “Bartipi” will return to Flemingate on Thursday, December 7, for the run-up to Christmas. “We’re still finalising details, but Bartipi will also host themed events while at Flemingate. So far, we have a comedy evening planned and a night with a hypnotist, plus we are organising some open mic nights,” said Sam.
