Kent Gin Fest heads to Tonbridge Castle

The Kent Gin Fest is one of the UK’s biggest outdoor gin festival tours and is coming to Tonbridge this summer for its 2022 Kent Gin Fest on Saturday July 23 and Sunday July 24. It’ll be on from noon each day until 9pm.

With more artists to be announced, ex-lead singer of The Drifters, Ray Lewis, will be one of the main stage headliners over the weekend together with top tributes like Abba Divas. Some of the main attractions include three unique Gin zones – one covering local distillers, one showcasing Gins of the World, and the Best of the Rest zone with featured gins from around the UK.

There is also the very best variety of locally sourced hot and cold food that Kent has to offer, and live entertainment all day with everything from up-and-coming artists through to The UK’s biggest tributes.

Organiser David Hill, CEO of E3 Events, said: “We can’t wait to put on this spectacular two-day event.

“Tonbridge Castle is the most amazing venue. It has everything and really is the perfect back-drop for a gin festival.

“We have been blown away by the amount of public interest in this festival, and this will only increase as we get nearer to the weekend itself.

“Our message is simple – secure your tickets as soon as you can.”

Exhibitors include Jonomade Gin, a family-run business based in Sevenoaks, The Rum Company, situated in Tunbridge Wells, and many others from around the south-east and indeed around the world.

David said: “Kent produce is at the heart of this unique festival but we will also be showcasing gins of the world with international culinary options to complement them.

“Our Best of the Rest zone will feature small-batch guest gins from neighbouring counties.

“There will also be craft beers on site and some local fizz for you to try.

“When you need cooling down under the July sunshine, you can even head for the Pimm’s bar.

“We will celebrate the extraordinary craftmanship of independent, Kent, British and worldwide gin distillers at this unique summer event.”
