Brancott Estate is celebrating 40 years since it singlehandedly pioneered the Original Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, by launching the UK's first home hacking event.
The Great Home Hack will make its debut at Fulham Palace on March 13-15 and will feature new and original works from leading designers, artists and creators within the world of upcycling.
Curated by Channel 4’s Max McMurdo, the weekend will include workshops in home hacking and upcycling, live demonstrations and of course, tastings of Brancott Estate’s award winning wines.Download Event Layout Buy Tickets
