Rum lovers rejoice! A festival celebrating the tipple is returning to Norwich next year.

The first Norwich Rum Festival took place at Open in May and following its success organisers have confirmed it will be coming back to the city.

The travelling event will return in May 2018 to showcase over 100 different types of rum and offer a range of live entertainment, food and giveaways.

Lucy Douglas, the festival's founder, said: 'We knew rum was going to be big in 2017 and we'd heard Norwich knows how to party and the people of this fine city did not disappoint!

'We loved it so much we're coming back and you're all invited to join the party!'

Taking place at OPEN over May 18-19, the festival will be split into three sessions.

Each guest will be gifted a Rum Festival glass and brochure. Drinks vouchers to taste the rums will be available.
