Gin Festival York 2016


York Racecourse, York, YO23 1EX


Friday 26th February - Saturday 27th February

Event Details presents:

After last year's sell-out success Gin Festival York is back at the new venue of The Racecourse. There will be more masterclasses, more live music and, of course, more gins!

The Ebor Stand, York Racecourse, Tadcaster Rd, York, North Yorkshire YO23 1EX

We will be showcasing over 100 different gins! On arrival you will be handed your Gin Festival glass (to take home!) and a brochure, full of information on all the gins you can try, a little about each company and the suggested garnish. 

You will need drinks tokens to buy the gin which will be available at the front desk. These are £5 per drink and include tonic and a fresh garnish. Most people tend to buy a card of 4 for £20 and go from there, but you can buy less if you like.

Throughout the event there will be live entertainment, talks from gin industry experts, food available to buy and lot's of chit chat with other gin lovers. If you're new to gin don't worry, our friendly staff will recommend a few to get you going or tell you all about our favourites :-)

Tickets are just £7.50

The sessions will run:

Friday 26th February : Evening Session: 6.30pm - 11pm

Saturday 27th February: Afternoon Session 12.30pm - 5pm

Saturday 27th February: Evening Session 6.30pm - 11pm
