Pop the corks, it’s the Prosecco and Gin Festival 2018

Be still our beating hearts, The Vino Van are turning Northants into the booze capital with a festival full of Gin and Fizz - woo hoo!

The festival shenanigans are being taken to the next level this year with The Vino Van Events Ltd bringing our dreams to life with The Prosecco & Gin Festival, (yes, that’s right, both, in one place) no need to say more. Corby Town Football Club is the place to be on Saturday 14th of July and, with the promised selection sounding like heaven, grab that pen and jot it on the calendar because you won’t wanna miss this!

Gin and Prosecco are the loves of many people’s lives so be sure to grab yourself a ticket as there is limited availability, once they’re gone, they’re gone. Pre-booked Entry Only tickets cost a mere £5 or you can treat yourself to the an Entry Plus two drink tokens ticket which is £14, the drink tokens are worth £6 each so that’s the excuse to spend the extra cash on another bev. The festival is strictly over 18’s only so you can enjoy a day with your pals and without the rugrats.

Now onto the important part – the drinks. If you’re after the bubbles, you can go to four different bars to find that perfect Prosecco cocktail. Expect to find Bellini, Prosecco Fizz, Prosecco Hugo cocktails plus much more at the Prosecco Cocktail Bar or add a ‘pop’ to your Prosecco at the Pimp Your Prosecco Bar with Popaball, rose gold Prosecco, Bellini ice pops and pretty much everything you need to pimp up that fizz! The Premium Prosecco Bar is the one to go too if you are watching the calories as you will find Skinny (vegan) Prosecco, and you get get your hands on the fabulous Bottega Gold if you want to feel a tad bit fancy. The Aperol Spritz Garden Bar will certainly put you in a summery mood with deck chairs, Aperol hats and some seriously tasty Aperol drinks, lets hope the sun will have its hat on.

If you’re a Gin fan, this line up is the one for you. The G&T Bar will have over ten Gin brands for you to choose from. Expect Brockmans Gin, Whitely Neill, Beefeater Gin, Angola, Monkey 47, Schwarzwarld Dry Gin, Tanqueray, Edinburgh Gin, Gin Mare, Bombay Sapphire ad well as small batch gins. And we can’t forget about Muddy Award winners, Warner Edwards Distillery, whose entire range will be available (the Rhubarb Gin is to die for). Turn your gin into a cocktail at the Gin Cocktail Bar with Elderflower Collins, Pink Gin Spritz and, of course, there’s loads more. Take it to the next level at the Pimp Your Gin Bar where you will find everything to pimp it up including gin shimmer and popping balls (how fancy!).

Beefeater Gin are also attending the festival and going Gin Masterclasses.
This will include a brief history of gin, what makes a perfect gin & gin cocktail ideas!
You will be given two Beefeater gins to sample along with a Fevertree mixer and fruit garnish to make the perfect serve.
The session will end by making our own Pink Gin & Prosecco Cocktail – Gin Masterclass includes…
Talk and discussion with Beefeater Gin
Two Gin & Tonics
One Pink Gin & Prosecco Cocktail to take away…(tickets available on link below).

You can even find Craft Beer on most bars (how will we choose!) so bring the fellas along for a few drinks but be sure you aren’t the designated driver because, with all these options, you’ll most likely be having an extra sip or two. You don’t need to worry about the weather either as there will be two large marquees so come rain or shine you can still enjoy sipping on the Prosecco and Gin cocktails. No festival is complete without music so you can sip away whilst enjoying the live music from Sax player Katie Parker Saxophone and a DJ who will be playing tunes throughout the day.

If you are in need of a nibble, the food court has some scrummy options to line those stomachs (do we need another excuse for more of the booze?) You can go for classic carbs and enjoy Stony’s Pizza or Real Belgian Fries or go for a luxury dish with Farmer Lou’s Posh Pork & Lush Lamb, and we can’t forget about Uncle G’s Gourmet Fried Chicken (our tummy’s are grumbling just thinking of it) and Cateringevents, we’re spoilt for choice!

The line-up is absolutely Muddy approved and it could just be our new fave festival so get ready for a weekend of Gin and fizz – grab the girls, book the taxis and sip away! Get your tickets here!
