Halewood links its Rioja brand to Manchester

11 August, 2016

Halewood’s Rioja brand Marques de Caceres will be the key sponsor of a four-day Spanish festival in Manchester this September.

Festejar, which promises “Spanish soul with a Manchester heart”, is returning to the city for a third year, with a line-up featuring the best in Spanish music, culture, food and drinks. The festival will take over the city’s Albert Square for four days, kicking off on the 1st of September with a one-off performance from Spanish tribute band, Andalus Band.

The four day event will also include music from DJ Miguel Manzano, Spanish dance lessons, crafts, stalls and daily live music and entertainment.

Halewood will be sampling its Marques de Caceres wines across the four days of the festival, including the Crianza, Rose, White and Reserva labels.

Andrew Turner, director of wine at Halewood, said: “Marques de Caceres is the wine that real Spaniards drink and Festejar promises to be four days of authentic Spanish culture like no other. We are delighted to be sponsoring the event.”

Festejar organiser Patrick Marmion, said: “Festejar keeps getting bigger and better and this year’s events promise four days that will transport Manchester’s residents direct to the heart of modern Spanish culture.

“No matter what the Machester weather throws at us, this will be one part of the city where the sun will always be shining.”
