FAQs

Festivals inspired by Gin lovers

What’s included in the ticket fee? 

Your ticket provides not only entrance to the festival, but your own gin glass and metal straw to take home; a free festival G&T; plus our Gin Book with tasting notes to guide you and access  to talks about the history of Gin.

 

Cost of the gins and payment? 

We operate a voucher system. Vouchers are available in multiples of £5 and £20. A standard gin or rum (25 ml) with complimentary mixer and garnish is £5. Prosecco Royales are £10 (200ml).


We are happy to refund any unused vouchers, but vouchers may only be redeemed on the day of purchase before the end of the session.


How can I pay for drinks? 

We accept cash and card payments, although sometimes signal is weak and, depending on venue, the card machine can be slow and temperamental, so come prepared.


Is there an age limit for this event? 

Yes, the Festival is exclusively for peple aged 18 and over. No one under the age of 18 will be allowed entry even if they are in possession of a valid ticket. We operate the Challenge 25 scheme, meaning if you are lucky enough to look under 25 you will be asked for ID, so please bring suitable documentation. Sorry, but these events are not suitable for babies or anyone under 18 and their entry will be refused and we won’t be able to refund you.


Will there be entertainment at the festival? 

Yes, it is a gin party after all. To ensure the fun and good vibes there is live music – show us your dance moves and best sing-along performance. Plus, we also have a Giant Jenga and props for that perfect instagramable selfie!


Are there other drinks at the festival?

Yes, at the Rum Bar you can a selection of Premium Rums, plus Prosecco and Prosecco Royales. We also have a small supply of beers and soft drinks.

 

Are we allowed to go out and come back into the festival? 

Yes, of course, but to ensure re-admittance, our door staff will need to give you a small stamp on your hand.

 

Will there be food at the festival? 

Yes, food is available at our festivals. The offer changes from venue to venue - if possible we will email you in advance with more details/ menu. The venues we operate in do not allow for own food to be eaten on the premises.

 

Is seating available? 

Yes, we have a number of seats available on a first-come-first-served basis. Primarily, this is a standing event, so seating is not guaranteed for everyone and cannot be reserved in advance. If you need assistance, please e-mail us on hello@theginsociety.bar and we will be happy to help.


Does the ticket have to be used by the person named on it? 

No, anyone 18 and over (with proof of ID if required) may use the ticket, so you can even buy them as gifts!


I can no longer make it to the festival, can I get a refund? 

Yes, we realise plans sometimes change, so we are happy to arrange a refund up to seven days before the festival. It is fine to pass your ticket on to a friend, as long as they are aged 18 or over. To arrange a full refund please email us at hello@theginsociety.bar


Do I get sent paper tickets for the festival? 

No, your tickets are included in your purchase confirmation email sent to you by the ticket supplier. Either download and print it, or use the e-ticket via the App. If you do not receive your confirmation email, please email us on hello@theginsociety.bar
