Sheffield Gin Festival 2017
27th - 28th May Bank Holiday Weekend
The Independent Gin Festival from Sheffield for Sheffield
Sheffield's BIGGEST independent Gin Festival! Proudly supported by Fentimans botanically brewed beverages.
Over the May bank holiday weekend you will have the opportunity to be a part of Sheffield's Independent Gin Festival. Sample a selection of the finest gin brands, taste a range of exciting street food, explore what Sheffield's most iconic venues have to offer and party late into the night at our special evening events.
Over the course of the weekend ticket holders will have access to the main festival event at the O2 Academy, our exclusive 'Secret Gin Bar’ and all festival pre and after parties. The festival will take place throughout Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May and along with participating venues will be providing a range of exciting gin experiences and discounts across the city.
As you enter the main festival you will receive your weekend pass, a copy of our gin festival programme detailing everything you need to know about the festival, a gin sampling card, your festival discount card and a selection of surprises!
On top of this we're offering a number of Gin Experience Packages, with the help of our festival partners. From cocktail master classes to gin tasting sessions with industry experts and much more. Details of these will be released at a later date and you will be required to book your place so keep your eyes peeled to make sure you get the time slot you desire.
If you get hungry at any point during the festival then there will be a large selection of food to choose from as we have happily teamed up with Street Food Warehouse Sheffield to make sure you stay well fed. https://www.facebook.com/StreetFoodWarehouseSheffield/
