BEVERLEY Gin Festival will be back bigger and better than ever this May, with more music, more food and more gin. This third annual festival will run over two days, Friday May 12th and Saturday May 13th, at Beverley Minster and festival director Rob Snaith told us: “I am incredibly excited as we have grown the festival in all aspects. Last year totally sold out so we have added an extra session with additional tickets on sale, there’s more of the very best of British and international gins for residents and visitors to enjoy, and more, different entertainment and food.”  

Tickets cost £20 for any of the four sessions, which includes two drinks, a festival gin glass, a metal straw, pen and a custom-designed festival programme. The increase in tickets this year has been made possible partly by a Love Your High Street grant from East Riding Council and another from the Hull and East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
