THE final countdown is on to Helensburgh’s first ever wine festival this weekend.

Organised by the Helensburgh and District Round Table, the group behind the town’s hugely successful beer and gin festival, in collaboration with La Jupe and The Sugar Boat, the event runs from 2pm until 7pm this Saturday, November 12, at the Helensburgh and Lomond Civic Centre in East Clyde Street.

By buying your entry ticket you'll receive four wine tokens to get you started, and more tokens will be available thereafter.

If you fancy continuing the evening after the event, both La Jupe and The Sugar Boat will be giving away discounts to be redeemed at their respective establishments.

No under-18s will be permitted at the event, and as the festival is taking place entirely indoors, no dogs are allowed, execpt guide dogs.

Tickets for the day are on sale now at the Round Table’s website - click here to book and find out more about the event.
