Eat, drink and be merry

Meet some of the experts behind our outstanding wines, sample the very best spirits and beers, and discover the stories behind each bottle. You’ll also be able to meet some of our fantastic food suppliers and try their products. Learn new skills with a hands-on masterclass (from cocktail-shaking to wreath-making), and watch demos from the Waitrose innovation and development chefs. Immerse yourself in all things festive in the Waitrose Christmas room where we’ll have food sampling, John Lewis tablescaping, demos with our wine experts and masterclasses with our Cookery School chefs. There’s even a dedicated cheese room…

New for this year, you can join DJ Nick Grimshaw and Michelin-starred chef Angela Hartnett for a live instalment of their hilarious Waitrose podcast DISH (Saturday sessions only). Pull up at the Champagne Bar, or swing by the new mini golf course hosted by Absolut to test your putting skills.

Get ahead with your Christmas shopping at the gift shop, bursting with treats for everyone on your nice list. And as a thank you for coming, you’ll receive one of our legendary goody bags to take away!
