Gin & rum festival includes free drink and free snack to ticket price, despite rising cost of living

Updated: Mar 7, 2023

The UK’s largest touring Gin & Rum festival will be returning to The Royal Armouries in Leeds on the 10th June! They have some big plans for 2023, which doesn’t include rising their ticket prices! With the huge impact of Covid on the events industry, this small midlands based drinks festival has fought through some turbulent times and it most likely won’t be the last difficulty they face.

However, this isn’t stopping them push forward and give everything they can to their customers. The Gin & Rum team said ‘Though we’ve been touring since 2018, a couple of those years were tainted by Covid. Now we’re back on track with booking new dates instead of rescheduling them.  We’ve had time to reflect and start to develop the festival even more, focusing on value for money and customer experience. With the cost of living crisis looming over all our heads too, this is something we’re having deal with promptly’.


At the moment when attending one of their events (£15 + booking fee), your ticket price includes entry, Gin and Rum guide, stainless steel metal straw, branded glass, live music, DJ, access to exclusive products and you can sample all the products available to purchase from the distillers exhibiting there.


The festival has partnered up with snack company LOVE CORN to bring a free snack to all their attendees in 2023. They noted ‘This is huge for us, we’re so excited to team up with such a fresh and exciting company. They’re completely unique and the team at LOVE CORN are great to work with. We’re sure they have a few more things up their sleeves’. With this, the team went on to tell us what else they have planned. ‘We understand everything is just simply costing more and we didn’t want to fall into that category. We want to be able to continue doing what we love for years to come, so if we can look after our customers, we’re sure they’ll look after us too. So, we’ve decided to include a free drink into the ticket price for 2023’.


From the Wednesday 30th November 2022 until Monday 12th December, they will also be running a pre-sale to all their confirmed dates for 2023. You can head over to their Facebook (@GinFestival) or website ( to bag a ticket!
