What is included with my ticket?
Each ticket includes admittance to the Cheese and Wine Tasting event and the Christmas Market for one person. We also have access to masterclasses (Extra charges apply), information from exhibitors and samples from their stands.
The Sample System explained
On entry, each visitor, with a valid ticket, will receive an ISO Riedel tasting glass for samples. Samples can be redeemed within the Venue during the session. Samples will be issued by exhibitors. An industry ‘sample of wine’ can be measured providing they are less then 75ml. A Full Measure Serve will also be available to purchase at the inhouse bar area.
Am I required to bring ID?
As this is an 18+ event you may be asked to show ID ( Passport, Driving Licence or PASS Card) if you are lucky enough to look under 25! If you are unable to provide ID, you will not be admitted into the Venue even with a valid ticket.
Will there be Security?
Yes, Security will be in attendance. There will be Security at the door and there will be bag searches on entry to the Venue. To ensure that everyone can have an enjoyable experience, we reserve the right to refuse admission to disruptive or agressive attendees even if a valid ticket is produced. No refund will be issued in this case.
It is the attendees' responsibility to take care of all personal items. Etiom Events will not be held responsible for any loss, theft or damage to personal belongings.
Do I need to print out my tickets for the event?
You will need to print out your tickets sent to you in the confirmation email when you purchased the tickets.
Can I transfer tickets to another session?

Do the tickets have to be in my name for me to use them?
No, the name on the tickets doesn’t affect who can use them.
I can no longer attend the event, can I get a refund?
Yes, a refund (less the booking fee) is available up to 30 days prior.
The event is sold out, are there any more tickets available?

Can I bring animals to the event?
Dogs and other animals are not permitted with the exception of service animals.
Will there be food at the event?
