Shakespeare Distillery and Billesley Manor Hotel to co-host Gin & Rum Festival
February 27, 2023

Shakespeare Distillery and Billesley Manor Hotel are teaming up to co-host the popular Stratford Gin & Rum Festival.

The festival, which takes place on Sunday 9th July from 12pm – 5pm, will be held in the 125-year-old Topiary Garden of the refurbished Billesley Manor Hotel and Spa.

Guests can enjoy a variety of craft gins and rums from a selection of distilleries, along with food and live music. You can take your own picnic blanket, chairs, and parasols to sit around the gardens and you’ll be able to buy your favourite bottle to take home from each distillery bar.

This year Shakespeare Distillery will also be adding their Rum products to the festival for guests to sample.
