Hardys sponsors balloon fiesta

06 June, 2014

Hardys has signed up to sponsor the 2014 Bristol International Balloon Fiesta after winning the naming rights to the event in a competition.

Simon Williams from Hardys said: “We’re really excited to be named title sponsor for the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta in 2014. All our wines destined for the UK and Europe are bottled at a state-of-the-art facility in Bristol, so we feel part of the region and have been proud sponsors of this fantastic national event for four years. The fiesta is at the heart of the city and we can’t wait to see the balloons take off from Ashton Court for the first time on 7th August.”

The fiesta is the biggest ballooning event in Europe and takes place from August 7-10, when more than 100 hot air balloons will take off from Bristol’s Ashton Court Estate at dawn and dusk.

There will also be an air show from the RAF Typhoon Display Team and the all-female Breitling Wingwalkers, as well as a bandstand of local bands entertaining the crowds.
