Mumblers explore the Ilkley Teepees

Illkley Teepee Festival with Wharfedale Mumbler

Published at 2:29pm 15th December 2017. (Updated at 2:31pm 15th December 2017)

Ilkley is beautiful town all year round, but when the Ilkley teepees arrive it's hard not to feel full of festive happiness! It's officially time for another Mumbler's Mission. 

There's no denying Christmas is a very busy time, and trying to fit in all that Christmas shopping, parties and days out into the final few weeks of the year can be a challenge. So Stray FM decided to help by doing some very serious research into the places to put on your list for 2017. We recruited the people who know best... Mumblers!

What is a Mumbler? Simple! Dedicated Mum's who research the best things to get up to in your local area for families and kids, so that when it's time to put the shoes on, pack the bags and head out for some fun, you have the very best advice on what's worth your time.... and pennies!

Today Sarah the Wharfedale Mumbler (along with her mini mumbler!) is in Ilkley enjoying the Ilkley Teepee Festival. Run by Bar Events UK, this group of temporary teepees in Ilkley Park runs until 22nd December and welcomes families, couples and friends. 

Featuring cosy firepits, a delicious food and drink menu (including marshmallows for roasting!) and Santa's Grotto it's one our Mumbler Sarah was keen not too miss!

You can hear how Sarah and her mini mumbler enjoyed the Ilkley TeePee Festival on the Stray FM Christmas Show below.
