    A look at how The Big Wine Festival is going cashless...

    Oenophiles rejoice: next year, England is getting its own festival of wine - and it's set to be the biggest food and drink event in Europe.

    The event, The Big Wine Festival, will take place in June 2012 with some 120,000 visitors expected to partake in the celebration of all things grape.

    But no money will change hands during the festival's four days - it's going to be an entirely cashless affair.

    Instead of handing over notes and coins, visitors to the festival will be able to pay by swiping a bracelet over a reader.

    Each attendee will be issued with one of the bracelets, rather than a ticket. Visitors will show their bracelet - and have it scanned - to gain entry to the event.
