Up to 500 wine lovers are expected to flock to Lutterworth in October for the town’s sixth wine fair.

Lutterworth Wine Fair, at the refurbished Wycliffe Rooms in George Street, is expected to raise more than £1,000 for charity.

And the man behind the Fair, current Lutterworth mayor Tony Hirons, says the money will go to two worthy local causes - local first aid volunteers Lutterworth Community First Responders and a shelter and benches in the town’s proposed new cemetery off Brookfield Way.

The fair is on Saturday, October 10, from 11am to 5pm. Entry is £3.

“This is the sixth Wine Fair in Lutterworth, and it’s still a unique event for the area” said Cllr Hirons.

“Beer festivals are quite common, but wine festivals much less common locally.

“It will be a treat for local wine lovers - and for anyone who wants to see what the refurbished Wycliffe Rooms look like.”
