The event is going to more than 30 different locations across the UK, including a two-day stop in Birmingham city centre.

It will take place at Birmingham Town Hall Birmingham Town Hall, Victoria Square, Birmingham, B3 3DQ, on Friday, February 9, and Saturday, February 10, with afternoon and evening sessions.

WHAT ELSE WILL BE THERE?

Located within the main hall will be stations offering more than 40 types of prosecco, spumante, cava, brut, pink fizz and even prosecco cocktails.

And for those non-fizz fans there will be an Italian peroni area too.

A prosecco festival wouldn't be complete without a stunning array of Italian street foods, designed to compliment the array of fizz.

There will also be a stage with a live band playing through all the sessions.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

On arrival you will be given your branded prosecco flute ready to fill.

All bars work on a token (no cash) system.

Tokens can be purchased using cash or card from the token points at the venue.

Tokens are priced at £5 each and can be exchanged for any drink.

An evening session takes place between 6.30pm and 11pm on the Friday.

There's an afternoon session on the Saturday between 12.30pm until 5pm, and a further evening session on the Saturday evening from 6.30pm until 11pm.
