Visitor Services

Although The Vineyard and Winery Show’s main focal point is, of course, wines – we’ve got plenty of other aspects covered too. Scroll down to see what we’ll be offering on the day.

FACILITIES & ON THE DAY

Shuttle Bus Service

If you are concerned about transport, we have arranged for a shuttle service to pick visitors up and take them to the show via the Maidstone East Train station throughout the day. Simply look out for our minibus service outside the station and hop on! This will be signposted with our company logo and the service will be provided approximately every half an hour, from directly outside the station. If you can’t see any buses upon your arrival, then please stick around and one will be with you shortly.

Cloakroom

We will be operating a free cloakroom for all attendees, in order to save you holding and carrying any excess bags or coats/jackets. This will be structured using a typical raffle ticket system, so please ensure you hold onto your numbered ticket until you decide to leave and collect your belongings from the cloakroom. Although we are happy to hold your belongings for you throughout the show, please pack minimally as to not overwhelm our allotted capacity. We do not hold responsibility for any lost or stolen items.

Food and beverage

There will be an open café on the day, offering delicious gourmet food that is sourced right in the heart of Kent, prepared and cooked especially for the day. We have chosen Kent’s number one rustic caterer to provide for this jam-packed day, and our caterer will be offering a menu that’s unique, fresh and local with both vegan and vegetarian options, to ensure there’s something for all dietary requirements.

In addition to our wonderful caterers, we’ll be helping to boost your energy with James and his Buzz Coffee wagon. James will be offering FREE cups of coffee throughout the day, kindly sponsored by AG Recruitment and OnePay. So, if the hustle and bustle of the day and our many activities start to wear you out, stroll over to the Coffee wagon for an invigorating cup of joe! He’ll be right by our seminar sessions and tasting hub.

Spittoons, glasses and more

Every attendee will also receive their own individual handheld spittoon upon arrival, as well as their own boxed engraved tasting glass to use throughout the day. These items will be placed in a FREE cork tote bag for you to use throughout the day. You can take the bag, glass, and box home with you at the end of the day.
