Brought to you by the creators of the incredibly popular Prosecco and Gin Festivals, the Martini Festival is a fabulous celebration of some of the nations most favourite cocktails, along with a selection of new and innovative twists (Biscoff Espresso Martini anyone?)

This is the event for anyone who loves great cocktails. Sip your way through our selection of delicious concoctions, enjoy live music, take part in the free cocktail masterclasses available throughout each session and sample some of our exclusive gins.

We also have a well-stocked gin bar at our events, serving up truly unique and exclusive gins, with premium mixers.

Our cocktail selection will include a range of flavoured martini’s and some of the nations favourite classic cocktails.

Espresso Biscoff, Passionfruit, strawberry, Cherry and chocolate martini’s are all included in our line-up, along with classics such as Negroni and Mojito’s – plus many more.

Every attendee receives their very own martini glass and cocktail guide, containing details of all the cocktails available throughout the festival PLUS the recipes and techniques to make them at home.

  • Your own martini glass to take away with you
  • Your very own Cocktail guide filled with information, cocktail recipes and exclusive offers

Each bar at our events work on a token basis.

Tokens are priced at £5 each and can be exchanged for a cocktail.

Cocktails are served in 125ml measures. Our cocktails are freshly prepared and batched ahead of the event to provide consistent quality and to prevent lengthy queues, so you can enjoy more time having fun. We use quality ingredients and real fruit in our cocktails.
