The Sussex Gin & Fizz Festival

The Sussex Gin & Fizz Festival

An annual celebration of Sussex-made gins and sparkling wines is returning to the beautiful surroundings of Southover Grange Gardens in Lewes.

Over two sessions, visitors to The Sussex Gin & Fizz Festival can sample and buy from some of the area’s most well-loved producers – sixteen local gin and sparkling wine producers will be in attendance and all will be offering samples to visitors as well as drinks by the glass. The event will also be a chance to purchase vineyard and distillery experiences plus a bottle or two of your favourite Sussex tipple.

The daytime session promises a family-friendly garden party-style affair with live music and DJs, plus a host of great local food stalls selling everything from cakes and pastries to more hearty fare, including vegan options. It also features a programme of fascinating talks by English wine and spirits industry insiders, including an interview with Ridgeview Wine CEO, Tamara Roberts.

With a wealth of incredible producers on our doorstep, there’s never been a better time to enjoy what Sussex has to offer.

Tickets are on sale now from here, or Lewes and Seaford Information Centres.
