Ticket sales have opened this week for the first Champagne Festival in South East England – coming to Hove Lawns on June 4th and 5th – and everyone around here is getting very excited!

Thousands of foodies, wine lovers and celebrities are expected to descend on the Regency splendour of Hove Lawns, and there will be over 50 champagnes to try with delicious food and luxury shopping.

Organised by Go Ahead Events, which manages the London Toast Festivals, it is certainly the first of its kind in the South East, possibly the UK.

A standard entry ticket is £12 and tickets for the VIP enclosure are £35. You can book tickets and find out more at www.hovechampagnefestival.com
