Monday 6th December

Nathan will be curating an extra special list of wines for you to taste and kick off the festivities with some ideas for your Christmas wine list. There’ll be fizz included in our selected wines and Chef Ross’ tasty small plates paired with some Christmas magic.

We’re hoping to collaborate with our Crafty Cheeseman too because what’s Christmas without wine and cheese.

There’ll be the opportunity to purchase wines & cheese at a reduced rate on the night.

Saturday 18th December

Following the success of our Christmas Market last year, we’ll be dusting off our Christmas hats and getting outside again in the thick of it to serve you some cheer! Whilst you’re Christmas shopping at the Maker’s Market, we’ll be serving hot mulled wines, beers and hot sausages under our tent on the terrace.

There’ll be bottles of mulled wine, bottled takeaway cocktails and our Proof Christmas boxes of booze to purchase for whatever celebrating you’re doing over the festive period.

No tickets, just come on down with your most festive of cheer!

Event Hire: Secret Garden & Garden Room December 30, 2021

We’re hosting events again! In our new Secret Garden & Garden Room. It’s a sun trap waiting for you to enjoy if the sun has got his hat on, or, if the Manchester weather is giving us a show, the area can be covered and you can have the adjoining Garden Room to cosy up in.

The space is perfect to hire out for your celebrations or work events, whether that’s for baby shower brunches, working lunches or a fun birthday celebration with cocktails and nibbles.Whatever you’re planning, we’d love to host it for you at Proof.

We can provide drinks and food catered to your needs and we can discuss options with you for the afternoon/evening to make it just right. Or if you’re after something a bit different, we can host one of our private Cocktail Workshops for you so you can learn to make drinks and have a go at shaking them yourself.

Please call or email us to discuss your event.

“Hired their outdoor garden and rear room for a leaving do and can’t recommend it enough. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful, really flexible with pre-orders and food options. The food we had was delicious. The team were on hand and super friendly but not overly intrusive. Amazing cocktails too! Will definitely be back! Thank you!”

“Andy & Carly couldn’t have been more accommodating. It was out first large group venture out (cocktail workshop) and we had the best night since March 2020! Andy was a fantastically knowledgable mixologist and very entertaining and the rest of the staff team were brilliant…having the chance to all be together for the first time in one indoor/outdoor space and to let out hair down eating, drinking, singing, dancing and laughing lots! So much fun.”
