About this Event

Spring Gin and Beer Festival – announced at The Oaksmere near Diss.

The Oaksmere has just announced it will be holding its first ever gin and beer festival on the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of May 2019.

The gin and beer festival will include a dedicated gin bar featuring both local and unusual gins from around the world for people to try and to buy. Plus, there will be over 20 local ales and ciders and continental style beers on offer to taste.

Set in 17 acres of beautiful grounds and located between Diss and Eye, the popular Oaksmere is a destination pub and restaurant with boutique style bedrooms. The festival will be held in the large events marque within the grounds of the Oaksmere and will play host to live bands and entertainment throughout both days of the festival.

In addition, there will be a tug of war tournament, yard of ales competition, champion beer of the Oaksmere that will be voted for by festival goers who will be given a voting card to judge the best beer.

Given a foodie destination, the Oaksmere prides itself on serving fresh seasonal produce supplied by local farmers and producers, so you can expect to be well fed with a delicious Blythburgh pork hog-roast, slow cooked brisket and bavette streak frites.

General Manager Ben Davenport said: “We are excited to be launching our first gin and beer festival which we are expecting to become an annual event. We’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of initial interest for tickets, so I’d recommend booking your tickets in advance, in case we sell out”.

Tickets are priced at £12 in advance, £14 on the door, which allows entrance into the festival and includes your own Oaksmere beer tankard or gin balloon to take home as a memento, plus first 2 beers or first G&T. Festival goers then pay for their drinks as they go.

Doors open at 12pm on both Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May.

A mini bus will be shuttling festival goers to and from Diss station throughout the day and evenings which is just a short ride away. Diss station is approximately 20 minutes from both Norwich and Ipswich Stations.

The hotel has rooms available from £139 per room, on a bed and breakfast basis. Rooms are elegantly appointed with a range of rooms featuring whirlpool baths, rain head showers, Nespresso coffee machines, SkyTV, in-room audio, WiFi, fully stocked minibar, and a selection of Elemis toiletries for your comfort and convenience.
