Not everybody can appreciate the hoppy delights of a specially crafted ale.

That’s why the thoughtful folk at Liverpool Organic Brewery have brought in the big Gins to a specially built Gin Garden for those who prefer beverage made from berries instead of grains.

Gin has become a favourite among spirit drinkers lately and Liverpool Gin is among the top choice of connoisseurs across the UK. Come quaff the most refreshing Gin and tonics or Gin cocktails instead of a pint, no one will judge . . . honest.

Served alongside the selection of Gin and endless beers will be chilled bottles of the finest Italian fizzy and wines of all varieties.

The number one UK festival of all time, Glastonbury


source; www.telegraph.co.uk

Steeped in the history pages of outdoor music events, Glastonbury takes centre stage. The festival grounds themselves have expanded over the years to city size proportions. Glastonbury is reported to need its very own infrastructure supplying water and electricity to the 5-day event.

Bringing in gargantuan crowds of partygoers, a mix of the Glasto regulars and fresh first timers. All looking to experience their own versions of the festival.

Still retaining the original hippy vibe of counterculture, the Green Futures and Healing fields spaces are very popular among those who attend every year.

Since 1970 the stages have seen the likes of the late David Bowie, Led Zeppelin the Chemical Brothers, Coldplay and Oasis headlining. In more recent years the main have played host to Queen Bee Beyoncé and, to many Glasto regulars upset, Kanye West. Controversially taking the main stage as headline act of 2015.

A true icon of the UK festival scene, worth a visit at least once in a lifetime.
