A tipple here – a treasure there – what could be better than the latest trendy way to enjoy a spot of retail therapy, while sampling some splendid drinks along the way?
This enticing prospect is due to take place on Sat Nov 9th when the Gin & Gift Festival is staged at the city’s Exeter Castle organised by the top team at Miss Ivy Events.
Imagine browsing an imaginative array of more than 40 gift stalls featuring jewellery, clothes and all sorts of artisan crafts – then enjoying a drink at the Gin Bar, where more than 20 different gins will be available to try, to really make the afternoon go with a swing! Live music from All About Iris and more will add to the atmosphere, ensuring the festival provides a real day out.
Not only can you seek out some individual and thoughtful gifts ahead of the Christmas rush – you can also learn secrets from the professionals with cocktail demonstrations being held during the afternoon.
All that shopping and sampling is bound to build up an appetite, so a variety of street food will also be on offer throughout the event to tempt your tastebuds.
So, make a date in the diary for the Gin & Gift Festival , which opens at 1pm and runs until 6pm. Entry is £3 on the gate or £6.50 with a G&T or £5.00 online (plus booking fee) to include a G&T – under 16s free and can be purchased on the door.
