Festive Events

A chance to taste, toast, learn
and make this festive season

 

To help prepare for the festive season, The Bonnie Badger
is set to host a series of winter workshops, designed
to spark some festive spirit.

Working in close collaboration with a collective of our local suppliers, we’ll help guests learn all about the best sparkling wines to toast the season, the best gin cocktails to concoct for Christmas, and expertise in creating a bespoke Christmas wreath and celebratory centrepiece.

The intimate events are held in our Private Dining Room and aim to inspire festive dining, drinking, gifting and gatherings.

Booking is essential as places are limited at each event – please contact our reception team on +44 (0)1620 621 111 or info@bonniebadger.com.
