When Gin Festival Ltd cancelled its Norwich dates and then revealed it had gone into administration earlier this year many customers were left out of pocket.

Now Gin and Rum Festival, a past competitor of Gin Festival, has taken over the sunken company’s websites, social media and email database and is offering free tickets to those who missed out.

Bobby Nanua, director of Gin and Rum Festival, said: “We’ve had over 20 successful events this year and have over 30 booked in for 2019.

“As a gesture of good will we want to give people who were left disappointed by the cancellation of Gin Festival free tickets to our event.”

The Gin and Rum Festival will take place in St Andrew’s Hall in Norwich on Friday November 1 and Saturday November 2.

Mr Nanua, said: “I am delighted to have launched the UK’s very first Gin and Rum Festival. We have had a fantastic year hosting the festival in over 20 cities. It is a great pleasure to bring the festival to St Andrew’s Hall. ”

Those who held Gin Festival tickets can claim their free tickets by emailing their ticket reference numbers to tickets@ginandrumfestival.com and choosing a festival city and session. A list of dates and cities is available on the company’s website. Gin and Rum festival will then email back with tickets.

Those unaffected by the Gin Festivals liquidation can purchase tickets from https://ginandrumfestival.com/events-tickets/.
