COVID-19 Statement from The Gin and Rum Festival

Covid-19 Statement from the Gin and Rum Festival 

Here at The Gin and Rum Festival, we would like to thank you for your continued support throughout this difficult time. As you will appreciate, we have been working very hard over the last 12 months to prepare for our festivals, working alongside local and national distillers to bring our customers the best possible gin and rum experience.

It is with deepest regret that The Gin and Rum Festival have decided to take all necessary precautions for our staff and customers and as a result have postponed the following festivals until later on in the year.

Manchester 27th/28th March 2020 – NEW DATE 4th/5th September 2020
Norwich 3rd/4th April 2020 – NEW DATE 3rd/4th July 2020
London 17th/18th April 2020 – NEW DATE 23rd/24th October 2020
Derby 6th June/13th November 2020(Derby Cathedral) – NEW DATE 7th November 2020 (Derby Roundhouse)
Swindon 6th/7th November 2020- NEW DATE 5th/6th March 2021
Nottingham 4th July 2020 – NEW DATE 20th February 2021

Any delay in notifying customers has been purely to ensure we have everything in place and are following the most recent government guidelines before notifying the public of our plans moving forward. As you will appreciate, this has caused a number of complications regarding venues and traders, and we have not taken this decision lightly.

All tickets will be automatically transferred to the newly scheduled 2020 dates. In the event that you cannot attend this new date, then your ticket can be transferred to a different location entirely for all 2020 and future 2021 festivals (2021 dates TBC).

As a small business, these are uncertain times to navigate and we ask for your kindness and understanding at this time.

Many kind regards

G&R Festival Team
