Let the party beGIN as festival returns to Lincoln

Gin fest returns.

Lincoln ginthusiasts can snap up their tickets on Thursday as the brand behind brings its festival back to the Engine Shed this summer.

Lincoln hosted the event, created by husband and wife team Jym and Marie Harris, for the first time in August 2017 and the city’s popular venue is ready to keep the gin flowing again this year.

Tickets go on sale on Thursday, March 8, with prices starting from £13 each per session and there will be four opportunities for the city’s gin-loves to join the party, so keep an eye on the website for more details.

The four sessions

  • Friday, August 3 – Evening Session – 6.30pm-11pm
  • Saturday, August 4 – Afternoon Session – 12.30pm-5pm
  • Saturday, August 4, Evening Session – 6.30pm-11pm
  • Sunday, August 5 – Afternoon Session – 12.30pm-5pm

Customers are given their very own copa glass on arrival, with a pocket size brochure to guide them through the festival to explore different zones – bars, a brand room and a creative cocktail bar all under one roof.

G&Ts are available from £5 each, ranging from small craft distilleries to exotic examples of contemporary gins in fantastic flavours.

Cocktails are £10 and a clever new cashless system will be in use, so people can now head straight to the bar with the option to top-up their drink credit pre-event.

The event is strictly for over 18s and ID will be required on entry.
