This weekend I’ll be attending the Franschhoek “Magic of Bubbles” MCC & Champagne Festival, presented by Mastercard, for the third time. The festival is taking place on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 November 2014, from 12h00-17h00 in the grand marquee situated on the lawns surrounding Franschhoek’s iconic Huguenot Monument.
I’ll be giving away 5 sets of double tickets valued at R2000 in total to attend the festival on Sunday the 30th of November 2014 – theme: Parasols & Panama Hats. Stand a chance to win double tickets by sharing this post via Twitter or Facebook, tagging me (@the_foodfox / https://www.facebook.com/thefoodfox) and tagging #FHKbubbly & @MastercardMEA.
Tickets are valued at R200 per person, including access to the festival, a complementary tasting glass and tasting coupons (extra coupons can be purchased at the festival). Tickets can also be bought online at www.webtickets.co.za, with a 10% discount if they are purchased using a MasterCard card.
