The gin buzz caught the city a few years ago and it hasn’t dissipated. With the buzz came a plethora of celebrations but the Gin & Tonic Festival at the Old Biscuit Mill was the original celebration of the popular spirit.

The event’s evolution now sees it as a singular entertainment, culinary and beverage experience. Previously featuring superstar headliners like Msaki, the 2023 edition is gearing up to be even bigger.
