Here at Crummbs we LOVE Christmas, and one of our absolute favourite bits has to be Mulled Wine (or Cider for that matter). So once again we’ve teamed up with our friends at Yelp who are throwing the mother of all mulled wine festivals!
Open to everyone, entrance is totally free as long as you check-in on the app – otherwise there will be a £10 donation to Yelp’s charity of choice!
So. Mulled wine.
It’s delicious. This is a fact. And drinking it makes you happy. Another fact. And it is a staple of Christmas and you look forward to it all year long – and now that time is almost here! The most important fact of all. And yet, despite this, there has never been a mulled wine festival in London! Ever! Until now…
LONDON’S FIRST MULLED WINE FESTIVAL!
November 12, 13 and 14 – 12pm to 9pm
On Covent Garden’s legendary East Piazza
**A MULLED WINE FESTIVAL! TELL ME MORE!**
Happy too. There will be three days of mulled wine from some of the best spots for mulled wine in the city. Plus mulled cider! And mulled mead! And mulled ice cream, mulled pops, mulled candy, mulled jelly shots and, of course, Christmas pies! (And also, some seriously amazing other eats).
It starts on November 12, the same night as Covent Garden switches on its new Christmas lights. The iconic, 22 feet tall silver reindeer will also be returning to the East Piazza, ensuring this year’s switch on moment will once again have a stunning backdrop.
Contemporary acapella group After Party will be entertaining the crowds with an exclusive set from 6pm, which features everything from Taylor Swift to Christmas classics. And, whatever the weather, you’re guaranteed a white Christmas in Covent Garden as it will snow on switch on night to add that extra touch of magic.
