Back by popular demand we return to the fabulous Beverley Friary. An upmarket hostel weekend in the beautiful town of Beverley for Spice exclusive use. Nestled in the heart of the beautiful East Yorkshire market town of Beverley, the Friary is a truly fabulous retreat in the centre and a stone's throw from the marketplace.

Our visit coincides with the Beverley Festival of Christmas on the Sunday. Now in its 24th year the festival has grown from a small affair with just a handful of stalls to what is now one of the largest events in East Yorkshire. Approximately 140 stalls will be attending the event, alongside the well-loved Local Food Theatre Marquee. It is anticipated that thousands of people will attend, making it one of the busiest days in Beverley calendar. Starting at 10:00am on the Sunday, the festival runs until 4:00pm, with a wide range of different foods from around the region available to purchase and enjoy.

On Friday evening we will have a meal at King's Head (not included in price) and afterwards we can sample Beverley’s many fine pubs. Beverley is proud of its musical culture hosting the famous Beverley Folk festival every year so there are always a few pubs that have live bands at the weekends and there will certainly be a chance to visit the gas lit Nellies aka: White Horse Inn - a quirky 16th century coaching inn boasting a great selection of beers and ales. Just around the corner from The Friary is The Sun Inn, featuring live music every weekend.

We will have a full cooked breakfast on the Saturday morning (breakfast included in price) with a continental breakfast on Sunday. Also included is a festive buffet on the Saturday evening.

Tour guide Paul Schofield will join us on Saturday morning at 10:30am to take us around the town on a fascinating history tour.

The great thing about these weekends is that you don’t have to go home after a long day visiting outstanding Yorkshire towns and countryside. If you’ve never been on a Spice weekend before give it a go. If you have been before you’ll know how popular they are! Whether you’re a brand new member, an ‘old hat’ or one of the many that have been with us for a little while, and you like having fun with other like-minded Spice members then this really is a great weekend to book. It’s also a great starter weekend if you’ve not been away with us before - very laid back - you can do as much or as little as you choose; it’s your weekend away. But, be warned – our weekend breaks do sell really, really quickly so get your booking in now to avoid being disappointed.

Friday night sees the first Spice National Gurning Contest to be held online during our TSI Friday event. Gurning is the fine art of pulling a particularly grotesque distorted face. A prize is promised for the winners so get a mirror and get practising.
