Lostwithiel Gin Festival
The 2nd Lostwithiel Gin Festival is on Saturday 29th June, 11am to 9pm, where we will be celebrating Cornish spirit in style.
Following the fantastic success of Lostwithiel's very first Gin Festival last year, we are delighted to announce that we are holding another! The date for your diary this year is Saturday 29th June, 11am – 9pm.
A plethora of Cornish gin makers from all over Cornwall will have a stall (or be represented) at our Gin Festival which is taking place at The Parade in central Lostwithiel, near the ancient bridge on the banks of the River Fowey. They will be offering their wares, tasters and advice. We'll be running a Gin Bar where you'll be able to choose your preferred gin from the menu then choose the cocktail or tonic water you'd like it with.
There will be live musical entertainment all day and you'll be spoilt for choice for food. As well as on-site options all our local eateries will be open, be it sourdough sandwiches or fish and chips, pasties or a cream tea, the pubs and restaurants will be offering something more substantial if you need to refuel. You will not go hungry!
Come and enjoy all Lostwithiel has to offer, browse the shops for antiques, vintage, homewares and much much more in between sipping your favourite Gin alongside the River Fowey or take a stroll down to the 'river beach' by the medieval bridge. Bring a blanket, a picnic, soak up the atmosphere.
Please drink responsibly but generously, donations extremely welcome. Another great event organised by the Lostwithiel Business Group.
If you are lucky enough to look under 25, then don't forget your ID, bring smiles, and good humour, patience (we may be really busy on the bar) and we will have a fantastic day together.
Please come by train if you possible can, the railway station is just a 1 minute walk over the ancient bridge. Then you can enjoy the day to it's full, just drive to your nearest station and jump on the Gin Train. As you know Lostwithiel is a small, beautifully proportioned ancient town and has limited parking so it will be first come, first served, if you have friends in town, ask if you can use their driveway, get dropped off, stay overnight, definitely car share with your new teetotal designated driver friend (there will be soft drinks).
