Last in the resort in 2019 - the event, which brings more than 60 artisan gins and 60 rum varieties alongside live entertainment and street food, opens for two sessions in the afternoon and evening.

Gin and Rum Festival founder, Bobby Nanua, said: After the success we had in 2019, selling out the festival in over 30 cities, we’re so excited to be back.

“Our team have spent the last year making sure our returning festivals are even bigger and better, and it’s a pleasure to bring the Gin and Rum experience back to Blackpool.
