It’s the biggest and best Beverley Gin Festival yet, with more music, more food, more fun, more friends and more gin than ever before.
Taking place at Beverley Minster over the weekend of May 12th and 13th, this third annual Beverley Gin Festival is firmly established in Yorkshire’s cultural calendar.
Rob Snaith, festival director, said:
“For anyone who has joined us previously, you’ll know the format. Stacks of flavoursome gins from around the world, as well as cocktails, Prosecco – even craft beer – live local entertainment all weekend and mouth-watering street food.
“I am incredibly excited as we have grown the festival in all aspects. Last year totally sold out so we have added an extra session with additional tickets on sale, there’s more of the very best of British and international gins for residents and visitors to enjoy, and more, different entertainment and food.”
There are four sessions to choose from, each priced at £20 and including two drinks, a personalized festival gin glass, a metal straw, a pen, and a custom-designed festival programme.
A full description of the festival entertainment lineup as well as details about gins and food will be revealed by Rob soon.
“I can’t wait to share with people all of this year’s events and speciality gin, and entertainment, so it is very much ‘Book now, but watch this space!'”
The festival’s sophisticated and inclusive approach includes non-alcoholic gins and beers.
“Non-alcoholic beverages have come a long way in a short time,” said Rob, “and there’s increasingly not a huge difference in taste between alcoholic and non-alcoholic, and both can be absolutely delicious.”
Rob also looks forward to being back at the Minster.
“It is fantastic to be unveiling the festival in such a historic venue. The beautiful Beverley Minster was built as a place for pilgrims to congregate and socialise, so it’s fitting that we’re able to do the same many centuries later.
“As well as being stunning inside and out the building was designed for the acoustics to carry which is why the live music works so well.”
The increase in ticket availability this year has been made possible partly by a Love Your High Street grant from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and an ICT for Growth Grant from the Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s Grow My SME programme.
“Both these grants have helped us to make steady progress on the size and scope of the festival,” added Rob.
