Chow Down Winter Village

Food & Drink


Guests will discover a new vibe down at Temple Arches, which now boasts a two-storey bar and games room. Upstairs will play host to the Rooftop Curling Club, offering the chance to try out the iconic winter sport in competition with friends and family. And downstairs, there’ll be headline DJs, live bands, booths and bar service – perfect for getting into the festival spirit.

When it comes to keeping warm, there’ll be fire pits, heaters and winter snugs, with mulled wine and cider on tap to ward off the chill. Christmas Tipis are set to host atmospheric Santa Breakfasts and a range of family activities on Sundays, all against the backdrop of ultimate cosiness.

Other options for festive joy include the Chow Down Ski Lodge, where winter snugs will offer comfy seating in a fully heated environment, and a transformed Winter Garden themed pergola featuring windbreakers, plants and additional heaters.

If that wasn’t enough, Chow Down’s Winter Villages promises a full programme of stand-out entertainment, with après ski nights, drag and disco brunches, winter cocktails, boozy hot chocolates and a packed line-up of amazing live music.

Over the eight weeks, Chow Down will welcome headline DJs Norman Jay, Friendly Fires, Horse Meat Disco, Graeme Park, Raw Silk and DJ Paulette. And for fans of live music, the line-up will include a triumphant return from Mr Wilson’s Second Liners with Back Chat, as well as New York Brass, New Freedom Gospel and the very special Chow Down House Band.

On the menu, guests can expect some exclusive new long term kitchen residencies from top street food traders, as well as a rotating selection of old favourites and new faces alike over the winter weeks.

Leeds’ first proper taco restaurant comes in the form of Tortio, which is set to offer a range of classic dishes and more innovative flavours, including Carne Asada Tacos and Smoked and braised Ox cheek Birria quesadillas, to Masa fried Chicken. Mostly cooked over open flames.
