Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL) has decided to terminate its longstanding sponsorship deal with Blankets and Wine, leaving organizers at House of Deejays.

Since the inception of the iconic quarterly picnic event, Blankets and Wine, UBL held the exclusive rights to providing alcohol, creating a unique atmosphere where revellers could stroll in with their favorite UBL products and wine of choice. However, the recent withdrawal of UBL’s sponsorship has prompted a strategic shift in the event’s dynamics.

Organizers at House of Deejays, have swiftly responded to the sponsorship change by announcing a new policy – no outside drinks or food will be permitted within the venue. This announcement has stirred a wave of reactions on social media, with attendees expressing a range of emotions from surprise to disappointment. Lule Ivan commented, “This is total greed if u ask me… u just can’t put up tht poster after u certain people have bought the tickets already. Wat happened to class and originality 🤷🏾‍♂️ Total crap!!!” Carilta added, “The concept that differentiates this event from the rest is being phased out slowly. It’s now like any regular concert!”

To assuage the concerns of loyal patrons, organizers have assured attendees that a vibrant food court and multiple drink stations will be available at the December edition, offering a wide array of beverages at discounted prices. This move is a proactive step to ensure that despite the sponsorship shift, Blankets and Wine maintains its reputation as a must-attend event with an unmatched blend of music, culture, and now, an expanded selection of beverages.

The December edition of Blankets and Wine is poised to be a pivotal moment in the event’s history, as it marks the first time both UBL and Nile Breweries Limited (NBL) products will be available for purchase from vendors at the venue.
This introduces a new era of choices for event-goers, creating an opportunity for exciting pairings with the diverse music and vibrant ambiance that characterize Blankets and Wine.
