Recently I was invited by the fabulous Fizzbox team to try out two of their events in my home town in Brighton. If you haven’t already heard of Fizzbox, they are an online company where you can book fun activities and experiences in loads of locations around the UK as well as in Europe. I wish I had known about this service sooner. I have been on weekend trips away this year and this would have been the perfect way to find out about local events available nearby.
Whether you are a foodie, someone who likes a day at the spa, or even someone who is a thrill seeker that enjoys adventure – there is literally an event for everyone.
Afternoon Tea with a retro Twist
The first part of the evening was a beautiful afternoon tea on a traditional London Routemaster bus. I have seen this tour around town before so I was so excited to get to try this out. The upstairs of the bus was arranged into groups of tables to fit 4 people and the windows were all decorated with velvet curtains which really added to the luxury styling of the bus. We were greeted with a glass of prosecco and given a menu to have a look at the treats that were about to be served!
There was a lovely selection of sandwiches with fillings ranging from cream cheese to smoked salmon, as well as a huge selection of sweet treats including macaroons, a gorgeous mousse and slice of carrot cake. There were several teas to try and I went for a classic breakfast tea which came in a spill proof mug so there is no risk of burning yourself!
After the first setting, we were served gorgeous scones with pots of cream and jam – perfection!
The tour lasted for around an hour and a half and was a fab way to view the City, covering all of the sites including the Palace Pier, Royal Pavilion, Brighton Marina and shopping heaven, the Lanes. The service was fantastic and I absolutely loved this tour. This afternoon tea would be the perfect girlie trip with friends for a hen weekend, or just as a lovely day out with your mum, sister, or nan. I really recommend it!
A cocktail making master class
The next part of the evening was spent at Las Iguanas in Brighton which is a restaurant with a cocktail bar area. We were greeted by our bartender for the evening and she taught us how to make a selection of cocktails. It was so much fun and it has made me want to host my own little cocktail party at home now! We covered all kinds of drinks from Pina coladas to mojitos – all of the cult classic favourites. We were also served a selection of tasty Tapas food which was a lovely little extra treat along with the drinks.
This event would be so much fun as part of a hen night again, or a girlie trip into Brighton for the weekend. We tried so many different drinks that t would be a good way to start the evening off!
I had such a fun night and really enjoyed both experiences. I highly recommend checking out the Fizzbox website HERE at all of the fab events that you can book through them. If you are looking for a last minute Christmas present why not book a day out that someone can look forward to in the new year. That would make such a lovely gift.
Thank you to the Fizzbox team for inviting me, I had an amazing evening and I will definitely be booking more events with you in the future. There are so many that I cannot wait to try!
