After a successful first event in 2017, a festival dedicated to gin is coming back to Suffolk.
Gin lovers rejoice. Following a successful first event last summer, Gin Festival is returning to Ipswich, bringing the nation’s favourite spirit to the town in June.
The gin tour begins next month in London, travelling around the country and landing at Ipswich Town Hall between Friday, June 1, and Sunday, June 3.
Drinkers can expect different gin ‘zones’, lively bars, a creative cocktail bar and lots more at the event, which will have both evening and afternoon sessions.
On arrival you’ll be given your own Copa glass and a pocket-sized brochure to guide you through the festival of artisanal craft gin distillers and contemporary brands, with something for every palate – from juniper-dense, to lusciously citrusy.
A clever new cashless system means you can head straight to the bar, with the option to top up your credit pre-event, with £5 bonus credit when you top up with £25 or over.

Most G&Ts will be priced at £5, with mixers coming from the brand new Schweppes 1783 range, with flavours including Cucumber, Salty Lemon and Floral.
Tickets go on sale this Thursday, February 1, with prices starting at £10 per person. Entry is for over 18s only and ID will be required.
