The Vino Van and your Wedding

Weddings can be one of the most stressful events to organize – particularly if you’re arranging your own, there’s so much to think about and do!  It’s a day where planning has to be nothing short of perfect, with no room for mishap. There are, of course, plenty of ways to ensure the big day goes as smoothly as it possibly can – one of those is making sure the professionals you hire have all the bases covered.

How We Can Help

We love a good wedding and we’ve worked hard to provide everything necessary to make the day a breeze.  Here’s how we can help you.

  • We may be experts on bubbles but we also offer beer, cider, wines and soft drinks to make everyone happy
  • For large events we use biodegradable plastic glasses but for weddings and other special occasions we can provide glassware
  • The Vino Van can be personalised to fit in with any theme of an event or to incorporate the names of the happy couple. You name it, we’ll do our best to incorporate it
  • We can be at the wedding for whatever time you need us and we don’t require you to be there when we arrive to set up.  Weddings are incredibly busy affairs so we encourage you to relax and let us get on with what we do best – pouring the fizz
  • Should we need a licence (a Temporary Events Notice) to serve alcohol on the big day we’ll make sure it’s all covered. Naturally, the same goes for relevant insurance
  • We offer a number of set packages to help make planning a special day easier, we can of course provide a more bespoke service to make the day as personal and perfect as possible.


Get in touch with us today  to see how we can add some fizz to your wedding day.




It’s Time to Plan Your Summer Event

It’s Time to Plan Your Summer Event

It’s snowing right now and January seems like it’s never, ever going to end. Hibernation is not an option for most of us, so that leaves only one other option – planning in advance for the warmer months approaching.

Now is the time to start thinking ahead to the summer events that you can plan to boost your business. It may seem a little early but there are great benefits for getting the wheels in motion sooner, rather than later.

Choosing Your Suppliers

With time on your side you can do your homework and compare and contrast potential suppliers.  Take the time to read reviews from previous customers on all the relevant platforms to get the measure of their service.  A great deal can be learned about a business from their past customers’ experiences.

Check the Small Print

It may not be particularly exciting but ensuring that a potential supplier ticks all the relevant legality boxes will make all the difference to your event.  Making sure that your chosen supplier has the correct and up to date insurance cover naturally offers peace of mind but it’s a legal requirement and it could avert an extremely expensive disaster!  Other things to check include licensing; does your supplier have the right licenses to provide you with a service?

If you’re in any doubt just ask! A phone call outlying all the relevant questions will help you make your decision much easier.

Make Haste

Once you’ve found the supplier that you’d like at your event get moving quickly! Getting in touch earlier means you’ve got more chance of securing a booking.  Events can be planned months, sometimes years, in advance, so it makes sense to shake a leg and get in there quick.

Shake off those winter blues and look ahead to summer and the events that will help grow your business.

We’re taking bookings now for the season ahead.  Get in touch today to see how we can bring your event to life.

Introducing: Foodie Street Food Night Market

Introducing: Foodie Street Food Night Market

Street food has become hugely popular in the last five years, it’s always been there of course; a cheap and fast alternative to commercial takeaways and restaurants, but it’s gained popularity year on year and shows no sign of slowing down.

A good food or drink truck offers a fast, high quality alternative to our high street takeaways and a more casual and laid-back experience than a standard restaurant.  Without the overheads of a traditional restaurant or café there’s scope for a wide and exciting array of traders to operate and bring their own brand of food and drink to a wider audience.

The Vino Van has been present at some fantastic food and drink events in the last year and it’s been hugely rewarding working alongside such innovative and talented people.  After attending a couple of events we realized there was nothing similar available in or around Corby.  We know there are plenty of good food lovers in the area so a gap in the market was identified.  Fast forward a couple of months, a lot of research and lots of food tasting (a tough job, but someone’s got to do it…) and say hello to Foodie, our first street food and drink festival.

The first event will be held at Corby’s S&L Football Club on Friday 30th March and we’re happy to announce a line-up of traders that we’re really excited to be working alongside.  We think you will be happy to be in their company too.  Confirmed so far are:

Midlands based Texas style barbecue Little Urban BBQ

Authentic pizza served from a converted original Fiat 500 by Stony’s Pizza 

Flavoured vodkas and vodka based cocktails from Jelleys Distilleries 

Posh pork and lamb from Farmer Lou


Cocktails and a range of drinks served from repurposed airliner trolleys by Fly by Bars 

Hand pressed, locally sourced steak burgers from Sizzlers Burger Shack

Gourmet Mexican street food including tacos, quesadillas and nachos from Sonora Taco Truck 

Gourmet macaroni cheese from MAC OG


Twice cooked Belgian speciality fries from Real Belgian Fries 

Ice creams and desserts from Mr Whippy ice cream van

Locally sourced real ale, ciders and spirits served from a converted vintage caravan by the Little Big Ale Company 

The Vino Van will be open too, of course, adding some fizz to the festivities. We’ll see you there, just bring your appetite and your dancing shoes as there’ll be a DJ to add to the mix too.
