To celebrate the beginning of the festive season and the return of its celebrated seasonal bakes, Greggs has announced it will be hosting a series of Festive Bake Brunches across the country this November.

The first-of-its-kind brunch event will see the ever-popular UK bakery chain dish out sharing platters loaded with sausage rolls, festive bakes and sweet treats, alongside a selection of Greggs-inspired alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) drinks.

Think a sausage roll sour, Greggspresso martini, sugar strang daiquiri, Greggs no-Aperol spritz and festive fizz, all served within a 75-minute time frame.

Kicking off in Manchester on 19 November, Greggs’ Festive Bake Brunch will see guests enjoy festive sharing platters alongside drinks including fizz and seasonal cocktails across three sittings.
