There is a gin festival coming to York next year

There will be over 100 different gins on offer

Tickets are now on sale for York’s gin festival taking place in late February.

The UK’s biggest and oldest gin festival returns for another year after Timeout described it as one of the top 10 things to do in 2016.

Taking place in the York Barbican, situated between campus and town, the event will serve over 100 gins, including many new and exclusive gins. The festival also boasts new brands, cocktails and masterclasses from industry experts.

All of the gin can be yours for £10.46, not the most insurmountable total to drink in order to get your money’s worth. There will be live music, entertainment, food, and even your very own “Gin Festival Copa Balloon Glass”.


The full opening times are:

Friday 24th February 2017 – Evening Session – 6.30pm – 11pm

Saturday 25th February 2017 – Afternoon Session – 12.30pm – 5pm
