This touring prosecco festival is the best way to start feeling Christmassy

From hangover-free prosecco to giant flutes full of the bubbly booze, it seems our love for the sparkly stuff is yet to wane.

Which is why when we learned that an actual prosecco festival will soon be touring England we couldn’t contain our excitement.

Aptly dubbed ProseccoFest, the festival will take place throughout November and December in 14 locations across England in time for Christmas.

You’ll be given the chance to buy bubbly booze – from prosecco, spumante, cava, brut, pink champagne and a range of prosecco cocktails – across 20 different stations during the event.



If that weren’t enough to tickle your taste buds, there will also be street food from an array of independent vendors and live entertainment on offer.

If you’re tempted (and, let’s face it, who wouldn’t be?), sadly the event isn’t free – but tickets start from just £12.50.

The festival will take place throughout November and December across England in time for Christmas.

The price varies depending on your location, and as some are already sold out, we wouldn’t advise hanging around as it’s highly unlikely you’ll be able to buy your tickets on the day.

The 14 locations are as follows, and you can buy your tickets here

Portsmouth

Nottingham

Watford

Milton Keynes

Surrey

Windsor

Tobacco Dock – London

West London

Essex

Reading

Manchester

Swindon

Birmingham

Newcastle



And, if you can’t make ProseccoFest then don’t despair: we’re pleased to tell you that Prosecco Springs is coming back to London next year.

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

From 26–29 April 2018, the four-day fizzathon will have more tastings, masterclasses, chats with like-minded bubbly fans, and plenty more prosecco-based activities than last year.

Ticket prices start at £40, and each session lasts for five hours. Tickets are available here.
