Our "Sustainability" team has been working very hard to try to source in Australia fully biodegradable glasses for all our bars. We will be offering compostable glasses at the main bar. However, no supplier is able at this stage to offer glassses shaped for champagnes or fine wines to give you a decent experience. So we have decided to offer you the best quality recyclable/reusable glasses on the market and these will be sold the price of one ticket (a bit less than our cost price).
The Canard-Duchene main bar will be open during our event opening hours.
However the Prestige Bar and tasting trails may close after dark depending on attendance.
