From Friday 12th May 2017 18:30 to Saturday 13th May 2017 23:30
Rum is the most diverse and versatile of the spirits. Great on its own over ice, perfectly blended with your favourite mixer, or shaken up in a cocktail, rum is the perfect drink for any occasion. With a vast and diverse range of production methods and being produced all over the globe in varying climates, every rum is different and there is something for everyone.
On arrival, you will be greeted by a Rum’un; handed your Rum Festival glass (a gift for you to take home!) and a brochure, full of information on all the rums you can try, fun facts about each of the suppliers and the suggested garnish to compliment your drink.
Rum can be grouped into six categories and that is how you’ll find them at The Rum Festival. White, Golden, Dark, Navy, Spiced or Overproofed; but don’t worry if you know nothing about rum there will be a welcoming team there to help you choose.
Drinks vouchers to taste the rums, will be available from a stand in the main hall. The drinks vouchers are £5 per drink and include a mixer of your choice and fresh garnish. We think the best way is to buy a card of four for £20 and then go from there, but you can purchase fewer (or more of course!) if you like. If you're new to rum don't worry, the friendly Rum’uns will recommend a few to get you going or tell you all about their favourites.
Throughout the event there will be live entertainment and dancing – including steel drums and salsa; live blogs from rum industry experts, tasty food to buy and above all lots of fun.

Friday 12th May 2017: Evening Session: 6.30pm – 11.30pm
Saturday 13th May 2017: Afternoon Session 12.30pm - 5pm
Saturday 13th May: Evening Session 6.30pm – 11.30pm
