The UK’s original touring festival of gin is constantly evolving in order to keep things fresh and exciting – and organisers have shaken things up.

Tickets holders will be able to explore the different zones including lively bars, a generous and informative brand room, plus creative cocktail bar all under one roof.

With a real dedication to the perfect serve, guests are gifted their very own Copa glass on arrival, with a funky pocket-sized brochure to guide them through their Gin Festival journey.

From small craft distilleries using locally foraged botanicals, right through to exotic examples of contemporary gins in fantastic flavours, there’s something for every palate.

Tasty flavours include ​Schweppes 1783 ​Crisp, Light and Cucumber ​Tonic​ Water, Ginger Ale​ and Salty Lemon.

The high quality mixers were crafted with the world’s top mixologists and expert bartenders to pair perfectly with gin and a range of other spirits.

As well as G&Ts and epic cocktails, there will be live music, delicious street food and the biggest pop-up gin shop in the UK.
