Bobby Nanua, the founder of The Gin and Rum Festival, said: “We’ve had a fantastic start to the year touring the UK but it feels extra special to be returning to Lincoln, as it was one of the first festivals we had to postpone over two years ago. It been a long wait for some ticket holders, but we’ll be sure to make it worth it.”
