Early bird tickets will be available at £7 per session before 1st February reverting to £10 per session. Tickets will be available online (with a small additional platform charge) or from the clubhouse. If sessions are not sold out then tickets may be made available on the door at £10. Please note, there are only limited numbers for each session and we do expect the sessions to be a sell-out so book early to avoid disappointment.

Free Gift & Drinks Prices

On entry you will be presented with your own 22oz Gin Balloon Glass and a comprehensive programme of gin notes which will also act as a souvenir. The majority of the gins on offer will cost £5 which will include a single gin, garnish, ice and a tonic. There will also be a range of more expensive gins that will be appropriately priced.

Due to the nature of the festival we will not serve doubles as we would like to maintain the choice of gins to the widest possible audience.
