Wellington wine, food, beer fest kicks off

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 10/03/2017

The Wellington Wine & Food + Craft Beer Festival is about to kick off the first of two days of eating, drinking and sampling, weather permitting.

With wild weather wreaking havoc across the upper North Island and making its way down, the first of three sessions of the festival has been confirmed, with the other two on Saturday still pending.

On Wednesday, the organisers sent an email to all ticket holders warning of potential cancellations.

"Please note sessions will proceed unless there is an adverse weather situation (i.e 80km/h winds and torrential rain). In the unlikely case that the weather is deemed an adverse situation refunds will be available. Unfortunately switching tickets to another session is not possible," it read.

A decision for Friday's session to go ahead was made at midday, the Saturday afternoon session will be decided by Saturday 9am, and the evening session will be decided by 12pm.
