It was a really good day! Lots of lovely gin and food (especially the lamb and halloumi burgers!). The bands were great and there was a brilliant atmosphere to the event.

A gin festival made a change from all the beer festivals, although there was beer and prosecco available. Good variety of food.

Poor event, drinks served in horrible thin plastic glasses, food nice but very expensive, arrived at 9:30 hardly any one there as if it was winding down, left after an hour, won't be attending the next one.

The tables were too close together and if you where in the middle you had to ask the entire row to stand up to let you out. Gin was good but for paying in and to receive not even a glass was a bit much. I have been to many festivals and your usually greeted with a glass and drink.

Not exactly a gin festival!
Nice event but other gin festivals provide 50-100 gins to taste. Plus for the entry fee they give you a nice proper glass not plastic containers to taste your gin then take home as a momentous/ drink gin at home.
Music was very loud. Not conducive to discussing the gin.
Event was neither one thing or another - bit of an identity crisis really!

I had a good time at the Independent Liverpool Gin Festival but I do think it could have been better. I was a bit disappointed with the lack of different gin stalls available. There was a great variety of gins available to try on the bars, but I was looking forward to seeing more independant gins and more distillers. I think the event would benefit in the future from being more like the beer festivals. You would have more of a chance to try different gins as there is a huge selection available. The food at the event was really good and I liked that there was a real variety in the food available.
The music was really good too but it would have been nice for the live music to have gone on for longer and had a bit of variety of acts.

Me and my party were extremely disappointed with this event. The venue itself was ok, toilet facilities could be better, but ive been to worse. there was no freebies, samples were a tiny plastic shot glass style and it wasnt given freely. one trader was helpful, engaging and knowledgeable. There was one lady who was more interested in her small dog she had under the table and so interacting with her was difficult. she said she only had a couple of bottles available as samples and didnt have enough left to give to some of our party. I did notice her have a few samples her self a bit later on while chatting with a friend though. i was very disappointed with the price of both food and drink (and im well aware of pricing in cities and at events) and even with a discount offered on food, with a specific app, it wasnt enough to appeal the seating was poorly thought out, and whilst looked nice wasnt practical. bench seating in rows packed very close together so getting to spaces in the middle meant uprooting those settled around the edges. i was not aware of live music. it was very disappointing, expensive, and not well planned or organised. i shall not attend this event if it runs again and will return to other better events where you come away with at least a glass or a few full drinks.

The jazz finished fairly shortly after we arrived (two hours into an eleven hour event) and everything was pretty expensive considering we'd paid nearly 10 entry. It was a lovely space though and all of the food was very nice.

I have been to a few gin festivals and I did expect more. Normally you get a glass/drink with your tick*t.

Drinks were pricy but tasty. Food was amazing. Toilets could of been better as no hand sanitiser and very few toilets. The main bar wouldn't take card payments.

One of the sample stalls ran out of samples by the time we got there at 3pm. But stated we could buy a bottle for 25 without trying!! Haha!!

I did buy some art and a tshirt off a local artist who was lovely. I did get a sample from 23 gin which was lovely.

Lovely atmosphere but you should get a glass or maybe a drink with tick*t price. Overall I did enjoy. I would go back again and hopefully the independent staff make each gin festival bigger and better each time.

It was ok and the atmospere was good however it was very cold in there. Also I would say that for 7.50 entry you got nothing for your money- at most gin festivals or things like that you'd get a free drink or glass or something. There should have been that or free tasters etc, I felt like I paid 7.50 to sit in the gin garden that i could do for free any other day..

It was ok. Seating was too packed in hard to move around. Not enough samples. Prices too high charged by bars and stalls ie: 1.50 for a can of soft drink is terrible.

We had been to a similar event the previous year (not gin & jazz) it was excellent, hence buying tick*ts for gin & jazz and taking other couples with us........ so disappointed no live jazz, throughout the day, poor choice of food stalls, and absolutely extortionate drink prices! Gutted to say the least


extortionate
