Your guide to the latest launches and trends in the world of fi zz
Did you know there's a private island in Essex? Well you do now, just in
time to save up for a ticket to what promises to be a true one-o .
The picturesque 380-acre Osea Island, which is owned by a music
producer and often used as an isolated recording retreat, is being
rebranded Krug Island by the Champagne house as it hosts a one-day
festival of food, music and fi zz on 1 September.
Music throughout the day will be curated by The Clash's Mick Jones
and will culminate in a huge jamming session, while food will be provided
by Michael O'Hare (pictured) of The Man Behind the Curtain fame.
There'll also no doubt be endless amounts of Krug for sipping.
Tickets don't come cheap, but how often does one get to be stranded
on an exclusive island with musical greats, Michelin-starred food and a
shedload of bubbly? Robinson Crusoe this is not.
