Kent Event Centre has won the contract to host GinFestival.com next March.
The event, organised by Gin Festival Ltd, will take place on 16 and 17 March 2018 in the venue’s John Hendry Pavilion.
Established in 2013, with the first event held in Leeds, GinFestival.com began with husband and wife team, Jym and Marie Harris, who wanted to create events where people could go to find new gins, learn more about the spirit and have an excellent night along the way.
The event has now grown and visits towns and cities across the UK bringing knowledge from distillers, brands and industry experts as well as providing food and entertainment.
The event at Kent Event Centre will offer visitors a gin masterclass and the opportunity to meet gin distillers.
Kent Event Centre’s deputy event centre manager, Ellie Nicholl, says: “We are really excited to welcome GinFestival.com to Kent Event Centre for the first time. The festival is a great celebration of gin.”
Gin Festival Ltd’s event bookings and contract manager, Jessica Fordham, adds: “We’ve always wanted to venture into Kent and have spent some time carefully researching venues to find the perfect fit for our festival. We feel the Kent Event Centre is a great space and will help to show off our event to its greatest potential. It’s a blank canvas space that we’ll really be able to transform into a gin-lovers dream.”
