Are you ready for London’s first ever Prosecco festival?

Prosecco is one of our absolute favourite drinks; not only does it taste phenomenal, but the bubbly concoction is also packed to the brim with health benefits – which makes us feel less guilty when we order a glass alongside a luxury boozy brunch.

So, when we learned that London is launching its first ever Prosecco festival, you can imagine our excitement.

Aptly dubbed Prosecco Springs, the three-day fizzathon is a chance for fans of the drink to meet the people who create it (they’re flying over from Northern Italy especially for the event).

You’ll also be given the chance to attend tastings, masterclasses, chat with likeminded bubbly fans, and get stuck into plenty more Prosecco-based activities.

If you’re tempted (and, let’s face it, who wouldn’t be?), it’s worth knowing that the event isn’t free.

Tickets for a five-hour session at the boozy extravaganza cost £35 a pop, but they’re well worth the money – not only do they grant you entry, but they also entitle you to a glass of the fizzy stuff from each of the eight top Italian producers.

Yes, that’s eight glasses of Prosecco in a five-hour period. Eight. We firmly advise you to partake in all the Italian nibbles on standby (think cicchetti, cheeses, cured meats, olives, and the like), to stop the bubbles going straight to your head.

If that weren’t enough to tickle your taste-buds, organisers will also be working hard to amp up the party atmosphere at Prosecco Springs. There will be an exciting line-up of live music, including jazz quartets, powerful vocalists, and beat-dropping DJs, too.

Eight whole glasses of Prosecco...

The event will be held at the Oval Space in East London, which is just a short walk (or stumble, depending on how much Prosecco you’ve sampled) from Cambridge Heath station.

However, before you get too excited, cool your jets, as there’s still a couple of months to go before Prosecco Springs is unveiled in all its glory; it will take place from 12 to 14 May.

Visit www.proseccosprings.com to find out more – or, y’know, causally book your tickets well in advance. We have a feeling they’ll sell out fast…
