UK Bar Gets Christmas Makeover for Charity

The festive season is upon us, and a man from a small village in Somerset, England, has gone all out to transform his bar into a Christmas wonderland.

The Queen Victoria Inn in Priddy has undergone a merry makeover for the holiday season – now dubbed “The Gingerbread Inn”, the bar has been fitted with 60 000 fairy lights and a nearly seven-metre-tall snowman made out of 2 500 empty beer bottles.

Additionally, the bar’s exterior walls are covered in delicious-looking decorations in the shape of gingerbread men, sweets and candy canes.

Mark Walton – who owns and manages the bar – started the tradition of jollying up his establishment four years ago in aid of the Children’s Hospice South West charity. Last year, he managed to raise £5 000.

He said: “When people see it, they just say ‘Wow’. People come from all over the world to visit us at Christmas. It’s good for business, and the charity does very well out of it.”

This year, Walton aims to raise £6 000 through The Gingerbread Inn.
