13ft high wine-filled advent calendar

It’s that time of year again! And our much loved, wine-filled advent calendar is up again this Christmas. Actually it’s not just wine that will be up for grabs this year, we’ve got a whole host of treats in those boxes. Behind each door is a stunning gift to be won every day during December in the run up to Christmas. Pop into Salut to enter the draw, you just need to put your name into the ice bucket (the sooner you get your name in the more chances you’ll have of winning something) – it’s the perfect excuse to indulge in a glass of wine or two.

We thought you might be interested in a few advent facts…

?Our advent is probably the biggest (modesty forbids us from saying the best) advent in Manchester, measuring a massive 13ft x 5ft (4m x 1.5m)?

?Made with 24 magnum boxes it is filled with over £700.00 worth of goodies. Each box contains a gift ranging in value from £11.50 – £100.00?

?It’s a completely original design and it’s home-made. It took 4 days to plan, paint and decorate it, and the first time we put it up it took 6 hours. This year we were a bit slicker and it took just 3 hours to put up?

?We bribe people we know and love to help us put it up, and consequently copious amounts of Champagne are consumed during its construction!?

Our talented Daniel Mee has done a little video of us putting up our fabulous (though we do say so ourselves) advent calendar:
