With live bands, street food, a wide selection of gins, gin tasting sessions, and much more, Beverley Gin Festival is all set for this weekend at Beverley Minster, Friday and Saturday June 14th and 15th.

Organiser and festival director, Rob Snaith, said: "We have some of the very best local, British and international gins for residents and visitors to enjoy and there is live local entertainment all weekend, including two great bands, and mouth-watering street food."

There are distillery talks and tasters with Wictsun Distillery, from Market Weighton, who make gin, rum and vodka and will be offering a variety of gins, including pink, orange, lemon and dry. As well as gin, the festival provides a selection of other alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, including cocktails, Prosecco and craft beer from Atom of Beverley and Hull.

Festival catering is street food from The Blind Swine, of Willerby, what Rob calls 'proper street food' specialising in serving homemade, hot and tasty dishes including blue corn tortilla Shrimp Tacos, smoked pull pork Dirty Pig, salt and pepper fried halloumi Asian Persuasion, smoked frankfurter Dirty Dog, plus sides, and all with special homemade sauces, marinades and coatings.

Beverley Gin Festival's music offering is on a bigger scale than in previous years with two local bands, Turn Up the Sun on Friday night, and Little Kings on Saturday night.

"Both bands play great, crowd-pleasing, sing along favourites and are well known on the local live music circuit," added Rob.

Further entertainment comes in the form of table magician Rich Reynolds who will be wowing festival goers during the Saturday afternoon sessions at the Minster.

With prices starting at £20pp for each of the four sessions, tickets include two drinks, a Beverley Minster-etched festival glass tumbler, a festival metal straw, Beverley Gin Festival custom designed festival programme guide and pen.
