Did someone say prosecco? One of the few times of the year when it is socially acceptable to have a drink in hand at all times, so why not head down to the Fizz Festival in Cheshire this Sunday.

Returning for its forth year, the fantastic Fizz Festival takes place at The Courthouse in Knutsford and will be their biggest and best event to date.

Showcasing specialist producers and suppliers of top quality Champagne and sparkling wine, from around the world, this is one not to miss and we personally think it might be the best way to un-wind this weekend.

Tickets £25
