The village of Whalley will hold it’s first Gin Festival on Friday, September 8th.

Taking place at Oakhill College, the event has been organised by local man Joel Beckett in conjunction with Whalley Lions.

A host of fantastic gins and spirits will be on offer along with premium tonics from Peter Spanton.

The Whalley Wine Shop will attend, with all gins for sale on the night. Jacks of Whalley will offer a selection of gins and tonics for only £4.50.

Tickets for the night are £10, which includes entry and all tasters. The first 75 tickets are at the reduced price of £9, but are already selling fast. The night starts at 7pm and entry is by ticket only, available from The Whalley Wine Shop and Jacks of Whalley.
