What is the WFA  Grand Slam World cocktail competition?
The World Flair Association (WFA) holds the annual World flair bartending competition (think Tom Cruise in Cocktail, but far more skilled) in which the world’s best flair bartenders showcase their skills, all competing for 1st place and to be crowned World Champion. There are only a handful of Grand Slams across the World each year (like Formula One Grand Prix) in which competitors gain points to ultimately be crowned Word Champion. This is the first time a Grand Slam has been held in Cambridge.

The Competition will be held from around 7pm to 9pm each night with two heats on the Friday and Saturday night and the final on Sunday.

 

Expect some extraordinary bartending set against high-energy soundtracks. There is no additional charge for watching the event as it is included in your entry ticket price.
