To continue the Gold showcase, guests indulged in Monet’s edible palette filled with delicious crips and dips before getting creative with our Pop, Fizz and Paint express masterclass. The results were fantastic!
Following on from our painting experience, guests were greeted by a stylish Moet Chandon penguin before wandering through our Winter Aspen lodge. The dry ice upon entry created the WOW factor while cooling off with vegan popsicles.
