Gin Fest Holmes Mill style
Holmes Mill, the go-to venue in Clitheroe, is hosting its first ever Gin Fest this July.
Taking place over two days, July 21 and 22, visitors to the area will be able to taste a selection of more than 30 different gins from a variety of local, independent and national distilleries including Batch, Cuckoo, Manchester 3 Rivers and Masons with more exhibitors yet to confirm.
Along with a range of cocktails, there will also be a number of masterclasses and a selection of live music throughout the weekend. Gin lovers can also enjoy a prosecco bar as well as cheese and charcuterie available to order.
Live music will begin at 5pm on Friday July 21, with performances from Will Thompson, a creative pianist playing his own unique arrangements of the biggest recent chart hits, at 5pm and again at 7pm. He is followed by Felix Hagan, a lively mix of rock, pop and musical theatre who will take to the stage at 9pm.
