Pizza and Prosecco Fest, Athena, Leicester Sat 6 Oct

Two of my fave things come together in the first ever Pizza and Prosecco festival. Enjoy some fizz with some delicious pizzas. Get your slice of fun while you sip on bubbles to a singalong sound track that’s also a little cheesy! Ticket includes entry & entertainment, a free Aperol Spritz, a prosecco bible and a slice of rustic pizza to get your taste buds going.
