Two ‘Made In Chelsea’ stars are launching a new party night ‘YOLO Ilkley’ and unveiling the new Orangery and Garden Bar at ‘The Yard’, Ilkley


‘Made in Chelsea’ stars Rosie Fortescue and Louise Thompson will be making a special visit to Ilkley on Friday 11th june to open the new Orangery and Garden bar at ‘The Yard’ Ilkley.

The girls will arrive at The Yard on Friday afternoon and the main event will be the cutting of the ribbon at 8pm to officially open ‘The Yards’ new Orangery and garden bar. Members of key local businesses, local media as well as regulars and partygoers from near and far will be attending the ceremony, where there will be a free glass of Fizz available to all to help toast this exciting new chapter for the popular bar.

Ali Allawa General Manager said “We are really excited to welcome Rosie and Louise to ‘The Yard’ and to Ilkley and the opening of our new Orangery and garden bar marks the start of what I am sure will be our best summer yet!, The main bar was getting very busy especially on a weekend so we have created an additional bar to help cater for this demand. It will also be a lovely area during the day to come in for a relaxing coffee, especially during the summer when the new concertina doors can be opened fully and the sun will shine through the glass roof.”

The event is organised by ‘YOLO’, who are internationally known for throwing big parties as far afield as Dubai but also hosting regular nights at ‘The Viper Rooms’ in Harrogate. This is the launch of their first ‘YOLO Ilkley’. They are hopeful that this might be the start of many ‘YOLO’ events at ‘The Yard’, helping to put Ilkley firmly on the nightlife map.

Anybody is welcome and after the official opening, both Rosie and Louise will be hosting a VIP area in the upstairs function room. They will be handing out wristbands to lucky attendees for a chance to join them for a drink and a chat upstairs as well as plenty of photo opportunities. Those arriving before 9pm will get free entry into the event. ‘The Made In Chelsea’ stars will also be mingling downstairs with partygoers for the rest of the evening, joining in the fun.

DJ’s on the night include Nathan Hassan. Nathan is a ‘YOLO’ resident and is one of Leeds and Malia’s finest and will be getting the party going with hottest R&B, Hip Hop and Deep House anthems.
