Sat 21 Jul The Rum Festival


The Rum Festival Ltd is bringing live music, dancing, street food and over 100 different rums to Warehouse23 in Wakefield.

On arrival you will be greeted by one of the Rumun’s; 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 our suppliers and the suggested garnish to compliment your drink.

You will need to purchase drinks vouchers to taste the rum’s, these will be available from a stand in the main hall. The drinks tokens are £5.00 each and for one token you can try any of the 100 rums with 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.

Throughout the event there will be live entertainment and dancing; opportunities to talk to rum industry experts, tasty street food to buy and above all lots of fun. If you’re new to rum don’t worry, friendly Rumun’s will recommend a few to get you going or tell you all about their favourites.

There will also be the Rum Festival cocktail team, who will mix you some of the tastiest rum cocktails on the planet! All just £7.50 each!

Tickets are valid throughout the session, tasting and band schedules will be announced at the start of July.
