Cool Events Column: Learn how to brew coffee at home

Ex-BBC entertainment writer Sarah Bygrave’s top events this month include a coffee masterclass, a West End singing sensation and St Patrick’s Day…

We’re nearly a quarter of the way through 2019 and I hope you have been getting out and about and enjoying some brilliant events.

Now that spring is here, the longer days and warmer temperatures are the perfect recipe for great days out with friends and family. Here are my top picks for you all this March…

If high quality coffee is what gets you out of bed in the morning then a home brewing masterclass may be the perfect event for you.

Plus you get to take home your own bag of freshly roasted coffee! Interested? Head to Eventbrite to reserve your place.
