Taking place from Thursday 6 October to Saturday 8 October 2022 is Great Malvern’s 2nd Gin Festival – celebrating the many varieties of gin and gin cocktails available in the town, where you can explore independent hospitality venues and the extensive range of gin they have to offer.
There will be over 100 different gins across the venues plus a choice of non-alcoholic varieties.
Whether you want to try gin locally distilled, a creative gin cocktail, something more unusual, or a non-alcoholic G&T, you’ll find it all within Great Malvern. All we ask is to please drink responsibly.
The event is organised by Malvern Hills District Council in partnership with a number of independent hospitality venues across Great Malvern.
Live Music & Meet The Experts
Whichever refreshing drink you choose, live musicians will be roaming across venues to keep you entertained, plus there will be the opportunity to talk to the experts. Roaming musicians will include Julia Palmer Price and Mark Leedham.
Malvern Cellar will not only be offering cocktails throughout the festival, but you can go and talk to the experts Angus and Lewis who can showcase over 90 gins. Special guests and experts from Malvern Gin will also be in Malvern Cellar between 12-4pm on Saturday 8 where you can learn about and sample local gins made from Hollywell Malvern Spring Water.
Whilst enjoying the festival, please also support our large range of local independent shops and eateries.
