The Catford Gin festival is back this year to be held in the historic Broadway Theatre.
The three-day festival in the main auditorium of the theatre will showcase local distillers such as Dulwich-based Fatty’s Organic Gin alongside those from further afield like Colonsay Gin from the Hebrides in Scotland.
Other distillers in coming include HMS Spirits, Hidden Curiosities, Tappers, Griffiths Brothers, Hayman’s, Old Bakery, Sherlock & Sons, Brentingby and Tom Cat Six from Catford.
The Old Tom gin distilled in conjunction with Foxdenton is a smooth slightly sweeter style gin that has six botanicals including a hint of Scotch bonnet pepper.
Tickets for the event cost £25 which gets you entry to a session, a commemorative copa de balon gin glass, tote bag, a brochure to guide you through your gin festival journey and tasters from each of the distillers.
Full gin and tonics will be available from each stand who’ll take cash and card.
There’ll also be food from Catford Food Market traders including Raastawala, Jerk Off BBQ, Renee’s Plant Powered Kitchen and Croquette Man Duan’s Deli and Bears Doughnuts.
There’ll also be a gin shop selling bottles to take home and pop up shop Catford Cornucopia selling Catford Pride Pale Ale and their range of soft drinks including cola, lemonade, ginger beer and cream soda.
