The Sussex Gin and Fizz Festival Returns Saturday 11 June 2022

Sussex Gin and Fizz 2022

Join Visit Lewes for their annual celebration of Sussex-made gins and sparkling wines in the beautiful surroundings of Southover Grange Gardens, Lewes.

Over two sessions, visitors can try and buy from some Sussex's most well-loved producers – 16 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 from 1 - 5pm promises to be 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.

The afternoon session also features a programme of fascinating talks by English wine and spirits industry insiders, including an interview with Ridgeview Wine CEO, Tamara Roberts.

For the over 18s only evening session from 6 - 10pm, the music will be cranked  up for an unforgettable night in the beautiful surroundings of Southover Grange's walled garden - with the same delicious array of drinks and food plus a bevvy of luscious sweet treats.

It’s become something of an institution since the first festival in 2017, and is a great event not just for visitors, but an opportunity for many of our wonderful local businesses to showcase their world class wines and gins”.
