    A group of pub-goers who found themselves snowed inside of a pub for three nights after a freak British snowstorm have headed back to the boozer for a reunion.

    Thankfully there is little chance of the 61 drinkers being stuck inside this year, but those who found themselves in the Tan Hill Inn last November were set for an unplanned lock-in.

    Following cable lines and a 1.5m drop of snow covering the venue, punters who had headed to see an Oasis tribute band were forced to sleep on floors for three days.

    They don't appear to be looking back in anger though, as they have headed back to the 400-year-old Yorkshire Dales pub for a celebratory tipple.

    Oasis tribute band Noasis also played some hits for the returning revellers before heading home at the first sight of snow.

    Pub manager Donna, 55, said she had sold 180 tickets for a reunion, although 40 expected punters played it safe and stayed at home, not wanting to risk another storm warning.

    Donna said of the reunion: "Around 140 people came up. It was bizarre to see them all again but in a good way. We did sell 180 tickets, but because it was forecast to snow, the other 40 didn’t turn up. We did have a flurry of snow, but it didn’t stick.

    "The band just played Oasis hits. But the funny part of the story was as soon as it started snowing, the lead singer jumped in his car and got going. He didn't want to get caught again."

    General manager Nicola Townsend managed to keep spirits high for those trapped in the pub on November 26, 2021.

    Those trapped inside labelled their experience to something similar to that of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here, with one punter named Becky saying the main worry was "if the beer ran out".

    Speaking at the time, Becky said: "We just sit on random tables with whoever – it’s like we all just know each other now.

    "It’s like 'I’m a Celebrity', but at the Tan Hill Inn pub."
