How The Gin Society Festival works

Your ticket permits entrance to the festival at the time and date stated on the ticket under the ‘Ticket Type’ section. You do have to be aged 18 or over to be permitted entrance to the festival. If you’re lucky enough to look under 25, you will be asked for ID. Sorry, but no ID, no entry!

On arrival, our lovely front of house staff will give you a brief introduction to the event, and your very own, limited edition, The Gin Society gin glass along with a Gin Guide booklet, describing all the different gins you can try as well as recommended mixers and garnishes.

You’ll then be able to purchase Gin Vouchers that come in values of £5, £10 or £20. Our standard single gins (25ml) are £5 with mixer and garnish. The Prosecco Gin cocktails are £10 (200ml). We accept both cash and card payments at the voucher station.

And then you are good to go and explore our world of gin… To find your perfect gin, browse through our booklet and then visit the different bars, divided into British, World, Fruit and Cocktail bars. We are sure you’ll find something to your taste. Each event also features a number of guest gins – just ask our amazing bar staff for recommendations.

At all The Gin Society festivals, tonic water and other mixers are provided by our sponsors Fentimans Botanically Brewed Drinks. www.fentimans.com
