Event description


THE GIN SOCIETY is coming to Lancaster!

Join us at the stunning Town Hall with more than 80 gins, live entertainment, masterclasses from industry experts and prosecco cocktails!

Tickets cost £7.50 + booking fee.


Friday 30th September 2016: 6.30pm - 11pm

Saturday 1st October 2016: Afternoon Session 12.30pm - 5pm

Saturday 1st October 2016: Evening Session 6.30pm - 11pm

We eat, sleep and drink gin, but to create the perfect gin festival cocktail, we mix 60 parts gin, a good glug of freshly prepared foods and a decent dash of delicious entertainment. It’s all shaken but not stirred and served up in luscious locations - not to be missed!

Plus, you’ll receive one of our beautiful The Gin Society Spanish gin goblets, which you can keep - handy for when you are recreating some of the magnificent gin mixes at home.

How The Gin Society Festival works

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

Once in the festival, you will be given your The Gin Society gin goblet and a Gin Guide booklet that will tell you something about all the different gins we have for you to try, as well as recommended mixes and garnishes.

You will then be able to purchase Gin Vouchers to explore our world of gin. Our standard single gins are £5 with mixer and garnish, but some of the cocktails may be a little more. The Gin Voucher cards come in values of £5 or £20.

We usually stock a small selection of bottled ales too for the uninitiated out there…but we don’t like to talk about that too much!

There will be entertainment for you to enjoy; gin connoisseurs and fellow gin lovers happy to share their enthusiasm; and, if you should feel a little peckish, there’s a food offer to wow you (please note all food is paid for in cash, not vouchers).

We doubt you’ll have any unused vouchers, but it’s not a problem if you do. We will gladly cash them back in for you or, alternatively, you can donate them to the local charity we are supporting at the individual festivals.

Still need any more information on the festival? Send us an email and we’ll see what we can do for you: . Alternatively, any info you want may be found in our Frequently Asked Questions.

Your ticket provides entrance to the festival and you will be given your complimentary The Gin Society glass on arrival. It is yours to take home as a souvenir.

Cost of the gins and payment?

You will be able to buy vouchers on arrival with which to purchase your selected gins. A standard single gin, mixer and garnish is £5, some gin cocktails may be a little more. The vouchers are £5 or £20, but please remember that any unused vouchers may be redeemed for cash when you leave, or they can be donated to the local charity we have selected for each individual festival.

Yes, the Festival is for people aged 18 and over only. Sorry, but we are not permitted to admit anyone under the age of 18.

Will I need ID?

We operate the Challenge 25 scheme, meaning if you are lucky enough to look under 25 you will be asked for ID. Sorry, but we won’t be able to let you into the Festival if, on request, you can’t provide proof of your age. Refunds can’t be given in that circumstance, so please bring make sure to bring ID with you.

Yes, the festival will feature live bands to entertain you whilst sampling your gins and there will be a selection of fine foods available. Wherever possible, all foods are sourced locally to the individual festival.
