THE VINO VAN EVENTS
WHAT THEY DO
The Vino Van Events offer a lovingly restored horse box come bar, as well as free standing indoor bars for hire, that way the fun never stops even if the English weather does. The van offers a number of packages including Gin, Prosecco, dry hire or standard bar – along with quirks such as pimp your Gin/Prosecco. They customise the bar to suit the occasion, and the customer.
The Vino Van Events started in 2017 with the launch of the VinoVan horsebox bar conversion. The journey from horsebox, to a bar hire company and reaching events like Formula 1, and LoveFit to name a few, is testament to its suitability for a range of events.
They wish to expand the business to have several Vino Vans across England, cut down travel times and become a well-established mobile bar company leading the way in the industry with quality bars.

WHAT THEY DO
