Kent Gin Fest heads to Tonbridge Castle


Tonbridge Castle has been chosen as the venue for a major two-day gin festival

The Kent Gin Fest is one of the UK’s largest outdoor gin festival tours and will travel to Tonbridge this summer for its Kent Gin Fest 2022 on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th July. It will run from noon every day until 9 p.m.

With more artists to be announced, former The Drifters lead singer Ray Lewis will be one of the main headliners on stage this weekend with high-profile tributes like Abba Divas. Some of the top attractions include three unique gin zones – one covering local distillers, one showcasing gins from around the world, and the Best of the Rest zone with featured gins from across the UK.

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

Organizer David Hill, CEO of E3 Events, said: “We look forward to putting on this spectacular two-day event.

“Tonbridge Castle is the most amazing venue. It has it all and really is the perfect backdrop for a gin festival.

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

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

Exhibitors include Jonomade Gin, a family business based in Sevenoaks, The Rum Company, located in Tunbridge Wells, and many more from the South East and even around the world.

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

“Our Best of the Rest area will feature small batch guest gins from neighboring counties.

“There will also be on-site craft beers and local bubbly to try.

“When you need to cool off in the July sun, you can even head to Pimm’s Bar.

“We will be celebrating the extraordinary craftsmanship of independent, Kentish, British and worldwide gin distillers at this unique summer event.”
