Kirkby Lonsdale Gin Festival

12pm - 9.30pm Saturday, 23 September 2017

Lunesdale Hall, Kirkby Lonsdale

Kirkby Lonsdale Gin Festival

Firstly a big welcome to the Curious Gin Club, to celebrate the amazing world of Artisan Gin and tonic...or other mixer if you fancy! Our aim is for you to have fun and discover a variety of wonderful premium gins, produced here in the UK and from around the world.

We want you to wander round and discover the delights of what we have to offer, to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy some fantastic entertainment. We will have a selection of over 40 different Gins and over 20 different tonics/Mixers.

On arrival you will be asked to present your printed ticket to one of our friendly volunteers or pay on the door if tickets are still available. Once inside you are free to come and go throughout the day. 

​All ticket holders must be 18 years or over to gain access to our festival. Those lucky ones that look 25 years or younger must present proof of their age. We operate a safe drinking policy and we operate under the "challenge 25" policy.

Once inside, you will be met by one of our lovely team members who will give you a brief introduction to the festival, and handover the most valuable piece of equipment that you will need - your very own gin balloon glass. This glass is yours to take home, and savour more gin!

Take your glass around with you at the venue as this is what you will need to get served your selected premium gins (and some vodkas too).

You will also be furnished with a small handy sized guide, giving you a brief description of the gins on offer at the venue. The guide will give a brief description of each Gins ABV and taste..

Our staff will be stationed at a point within the venue where you will be able to buy tokens to exchange for your measures of gin. Tokens can be bought by cash only. Each token is worth £5.00. Each measure of standard gin (25ml) is 1 token and includes your choice of Tonic/mixer and garnish. Have a look around, study your guide, then select your gin. The bar will have a selection of Gins and these will be outlined in the guide. Simply head to the bar where your chosen gin is being served, and hand in your glass and token to the bar staff. They will swill your glass out with fresh water and serve you the gin of your choice.The accompanying garnish & mixer will then be added along with some ice. That's really all there is to know. So relax, enjoy the atmosphere and have a great time!

​Finally, please drink responsibly!
