A POP-UP drinks festival is coming to Brighton - but with a twist. 

Club Soda is bringing its Mindful Drinking Festival to the city this summer, with a selection of low and no-alcohol drinks on offer. 

The two-day event will take place on July 9 and 10 from 10am to 5pm at The Open Market in London Road.

It comes after the company saw success with its previous event in London’s West End. 

More than 40 drinks will be available to try including craft beers, wines, spirits, lower-sugar sodas, tonics and infusions.

There will also be cocktail masterclasses, beer tastings, drink talks and panels by influencers and experts on changing drinking habits and living healthier lifestyles.

The free-to-attend festival is supported by Noughty alcohol-free sparkling wines and will give people the opportunity to taste the best in this growing low and no market.

Club Soda is the UK's Mindful Drinking Movement, it says it is committed to creating a world in which people drink more mindfully and live well. 

The organisation supports individuals to change their drinking habits by cutting down, taking a break or stopping for good, choose better alcohol-free drinks by discovering the best low and no alcohol brands, and connect with others through online communities.

Club Soda founder Laura Willoughby, said: “A festival in Brighton has been a long-time in the planning. We are so glad this is our first big event after covid. 

“You don’t have to be alcohol-free come along, you may just want to swap out a few alcoholic drinks for something a bit healthier. 

“So, whether you’re going sugar-free, on a fitness regime, drinking more mindfully, or going alcohol-free, we think you will find something to hit the spot.”

Amanda Thomson, founder of Noughty alcohol-free sparkling wines, added: “It’s such a pleasure to be partnering with Club Soda for this inspired festival. 

“Brighton is the perfect summer location for our alcohol-free bubbles.  We very much look forward to popping corks with everyone in the South East.”
