We are sorry to announce that due to the current guidelines issued by the UK Government surrounding Covid 19 we have been forced to postpone the 2020 Big Big Gin Festival again...

Our new dates will be as follows:
*NEW* Friday 23rd April 2021 - Evening Session 7pm - 12am

All tickets will be transferred to the new festival, so we all have something good to look forward to!


There’s so much more to gin than ‘ice and a slice’, as visitors to the Big Big Gin Festival will find out! From firm drinks cabinet favourites, to the very latest newcomers to the cocktail scene, there’ll be plenty to tantalise the taste buds as the popular two-day festival returns.

Gin lovers can sip samples from leading makers and craft distilleries, and watch expert mixologists shake up a storm over at the cocktail bar. Pair your drinks with some fabulous food, and browse a range of gin-inspired products and accessories to take home.

Whether you’re a seasoned connoisseur or completely new to the spirit, there’s something to please all palates. So grab a ticket and immerse yourself in the wonderful world of gin!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Big Big Gin Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
