As we wave goodbye to Halloween and all its ghoulish and gorgeous treats, the festive season approaches, bringing with it our favourite yuletide snacks and sweets to feast on. One such festive delight is Greggs’ iconic Festive Bake, whose return is being celebrated with a series of Festive Bake Brunch pop-ups around the UK. And the first is happening right here in London.
Kicking off in London on Saturday, November 12, Greggs’ first-of-its-kind pop up pastry brunch will offer guests exclusive sharing platters for the perfect festive feast. And of course there’s plenty of prosecco and delicious handcrafted cocktails with a seasonal twist to accompany. Subsequent pop-ups will then take place in in Manchester on November 19, and Newcastle on November 26.
While fans enjoy platters of Sausage Rolls, Festive Bakes, and sweet treats, they’ll also get to try a variety of Greggs-inspired beverages, including a Sausage Roll Sour, Greggspresso Martini, Sugar Strand Daiquiri, Greggs No-Aperol Spritz, and Festive Fizz (alcoholic and non-alcoholic options). All the while Hunsnet will be powering the party, entertaining brunchers with a full DJ set, live performances, and Christmas medleys.
Each city will host three brunch sittings, lasting 75 minutes each, offering hundreds of guests the chance to snap up exclusive tickets to the events. A £5 booking fee per person will apply to each reservation made and will be refunded upon attendance.
The Festive Bake Brunch marks the highly-anticipated return of the Festive Bake and Vegan Festive Bake. Both pastries will be available in Greggs shops across the UK from Thursday, November 10. Fans can even reserve their Festive Bake and skip the queue by ordering ahead via the Greggs App.
London’s Festive Bake Brunch will take place at 46 Great Eastern St, Shoreditch, EC2A 3EP, with slots available between 1 PM and 6:15 PM.
