Advance tickets for the Gin Festival, due to be held at the Alban Arena this September, will not be reimbursed because the company went into administration on July 5.

All 20 events around the UK have been scrapped and 20,000 sold tickets made useless.

Company directors Marie and Jym Harris released a statement: “We tried everything we could to rescue the business so that it would not come to this but unfortunately, we have not been able to do so.

“We know this will be disappointing to you and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. We want to thank all our amazing customers/suppliers for their support over the years.

“After five years of hard work and passion, this was not a decision we have taken lightly and personally this will mean we lose our home and everything we have worked hard to build.”

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
