Grocery chain Greggs will be hosting a number of Festive Brunches that will also offer delicious vegan options.

Greggs is hosting three brunches across the country to celebrate its popular Festive Bakes returning to shops.

Customers will be able to get hold of the Festive Bake and Vegan Festive Bake from Thursday, November 10, across all UK stores. Festive Bake Brunches will be pop up events in London on November 12, Manchester on November 19 and Newcastle on November 26.

The brunches will offer guests exclusive sharing platters for the perfect festive feast, accompanied delicious handcrafted Greggs-inspired cocktails with a seasonal twist. Fans can enjoy platters of Sausage Rolls, Festive Bakes, and sweet treats, as well as Sausage Roll Sour, Greggspresso Martini, Sugar Strand Daiquiri, Greggs No-Aperol Spritz and Festive Fizz cocktails.

Each city will host three brunch sittings, lasting 75 minutes each, offering hundreds of guests the chance to snap up exclusive tickets to the events. A £5 booking fee per person will apply to each reservation made and will be refunded upon attendance. Fans can even reserve their Festive Bake and skip the queue by ordering ahead via Click+Collect on the Greggs App.

A Greggs spokesperson said the prices for the bakes will be released, alongside a full festive menu.

It comes after Greggs collaborated with Primark once again last week and launched its brand new cafe in the Oxford Street East fashion store in London. The food chain launched Tasty by Greggs on the top floor of the fashion store and the eatery even features a sausage roll swing, doughnut-inspired seating booths and a double decker bus seating area. The ‘Instagrammable’ new café can host up to 110 customers at a time and it features bright neon signs and colourful furniture. There is even a London phone box which is an interactive game booth for sausage roll lovers to enjoy.

It offers the classic fan favourites from steak bakes and sausage rolls to doughnuts. However, there are some surprising new additions that you wouldn’t see in every store such as hot yum-yums with a choice of salted caramel or milk chocolate sauce after for £2.70, and you can customise your own pizza toppings. The eatery is no more expensive than what you’d pay at other 2,000 stores nationwide.

At the beginning of the year, Tasty by Greggs opened the first cafe concept in the Primark flagship store in Birmingham. Greggs property director Tony Rowson said: ‘Since opening our first Tasty by Greggs, it’s been brilliant to see fans enjoying the world’s biggest and most Instagrammable Greggs in Primark, Birmingham. Opening our second in Primark’s flagship Oxford Street East store will be yet another milestone in our wider London expansion.’
