Event Details

The National Space Centre is hosting an adult only Taste of Science evening dedicated to and celebrating gin!

World Gin Day is a celebration of all things gin, giving us a legitimate excuse (not that we need one) to mix up a cocktail and learn about all of the exceptional gins from around the world and from right on our doorstep.

Gin is the quintessential English drink and if you claim to dislike it, you're not trying hard enough. This might seem like a harsh statement, but with the "gin revolution" in full swing, the diversity of gins being produced all over the globe will startle all of your senses.

We have filled the building with the best gin producers in the world, live entertainment, talks, food, bars and even a cooking with gin demonstration kitchen.


TALKS - Discover where gin came from, the dark history of this drink of the masses.
FREE GLASS - Collect your limited-edition World Gin Day glass upon arrival.
FREE SAMPLES - Join us for a tasting session to discover some new and exciting gins.
FREE FOOD - If you thought you could only drink gin, think again.
GREAT GIN - We are joined by loads of great gin brands and producers. 
LIVE MUSIC - Dance the night away under our giant rockets with the amazing Lounge Kittens

The Lounge Kittens are gin loving rock chicks with a penchant for a three-part harmony.

In the past five years, they have been invited to open Limp Bizkit's set on the main stage at Sonisphere, toured the UK and Europe with bad boys of heavy metal Steel Panther and as the as the opening act for Status Quo’s ‘Last Night of the Electrics’ Tour which saw them conquer London’s O2 Arena.

Their sets are jam-packed full of their humorous, entertaining and technically challenging covers, from Rammstein to Usher and everything in between. The trio have played to sell-out crowds at London’s iconic 100 Club, the IOW Festival’s Big Top, Glastonbury, Download Festival, Graspop, Boardmasters and even a sell-out stint at Edinburgh Fringe.
