Kent Event Centre has won the contract to host the UK’s largest Prosecco Festival for the first time.

Prosecco Festival, the UK’s first dedicated Prosecco Festival which is currently touring the UK, will be held on May 11-12, 2018 in the John Hendry Pavilion. The festival for Prosecco and fizz lovers is expected to attract more than 2,100 attendees, who will be able to enjoy more than 40 handpicked combinations of Prosecco, Cava, Spumante, Pink Fizz, Brut and Prosecco-based cocktails as well as a range of Italian street food that has been specially designed to complement the range of drinks.

The festival will also offer an assortment of live music and entertainment for all guests to enjoy throughout the two-day event, including a mixture of jazz, acoustic and a party band.  Drinks will be purchased at the festival on a token system. On top of this, the festival will be offering a limited number of VIP packages, which will give access to an exclusive VIP seating area, antipasti nibbles and additional drinks.

Jo Roberts, national events manager at the Prosecco Festival, comments: “We are very excited to bring our Prosecco Festival to the Kent Event Centre. The venue offers us a fantastically versatile space which suits our event perfectly and a great team that we will be working closely with to ensure the event is a massive success.”
