Thanks to the contribution of Campo Viejo in bringing this vision to life, the bank holiday weekend is sure to be full of the vitality and exuberance which is associated with the Spanish culture.

Market stall owners from Barcelona’s infamous La Boqueria food market will be bringing their fresh produce and tapas to the UK for the first time ever. Exquisite tapas dishes will be prepared by the La Boqueria chefs and made available to visitors of the festival. Spanish breakfasts will also be served from 10:45am.

Additionally, wine tastings of Campo Viejo’s finest products are sure to be a popular feature, hosted by the winemakers themselves. Innovative street artists Okuda and Remed will be exhibiting their work with exclusive demonstrations. There will also be representation from Spanish cinema with film screenings as showcased at the Spanish Film Festival.

Furthermore, each evening will be graced with an illustrious pop-up restaurant, led by renowned Michelin-starred chef, Angel Pascual. This unique Spanish dining experience promises to spoil guests with a magnificent menu and fine wines supplied by the hospitable sponsors. The restaurant will be open from 7pm to 10:30pm and will provide a five-course food and wine menu for £65 per person.

Unsurprisingly, the wine itself will be extremely prominent in the weekend’s activities. There will be a fascinating selection of ‘masterclasses’ on offer, such as introduction to Spanish wine, blend your own wine, a range of tasting experiences, and an intriguing advanced Spanish wine masterclass.
