Real Ale Events are behind this new and improved event, after holding multiple gin parties they really do know how to get the party started, with an amazing array of boutique gins, tonics and garnishes.

Don’t say they don’t spoil you with venues; from the Palm House to the Bombed-Out Church and now back in the beautiful and historic Old Christ Church in Waterloo. The event will take place on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September, with 3 sessions over the two days for gin fans to choose from; Friday evening, Saturday daytime and Saturday evening.

They’ve listened to feedback from previous events and would like to enhance the experience. This time around the setup is slightly different, offering your party a guaranteed seat and no waiting at the bar, table service, live music and entertainment and plenty more. The event is aimed at gin aficionados and novices alike with up to 25 gins to choose from… you won’t be left disappointed. On the bar you can expect their very own Pink Gin, Bathtub Old Tom, a Tyler St Lemon & Lime special and a variety from local gin creator Turncoat.

There will be local food providers for you to feast on and soak up the gins, with savoury and sweet treats. They’re also aware they haven’t converted everyone to gin yet, so fear not if you’re not a fan as there will be a small selection of wine, prosecco, beers and soft drinks on offer too… so no-one goes thirsty. Not even the designated driver.

Katie Jones, Events Director at Gin Parties, said; ‘We are now in our 5th year of Gin Parties, and really enjoy watching the events grow in popularity. We’re in a gin revolution at the minute and choosing an amazing display of gin and drinking it in unusual venues is such an exciting job! We can’t wait to bring our event to Old Christchurch, underneath their beautiful stained-glass windows’.

Tickets are £14 and include a welcome drink on arrival. For more information on the event and to buy tickets, visit
