Bedfordshire Gin & Whisky Festival – Sun 29 March

Tickets | Masterclasses | Whisky and Spirits List | Soft Drinks | Food

Our annual Whisky Festival is back on Sunday 29 March 2020. This year, we'll have an expanded range of gins, too. Check back here nearer the time for full details.

Taking place in the atmospheric surrounds of the Page's Park Engine Shed, this is one of our most popular events of the year. No train tickets are required to attend the festival, with spirits prices starting at just £1. Why not treat mum to a late Mother's Day present, or dad to a ride on a steam train and a few drams?

We'll be operating our orange service. The festival will open on departure of the first train of the day at 1030 and last pour will be at 1600, with a small amount of 'drinking up' time.

The festival will be hosted by knowledgeable staff who will be able to help you choose the right spirit for you, and to answer any questions you may have. We know not everyone likes whisky or gin, so there will also be a small selection of other spirits. Plus soft drinks will be available for children and drivers.

Festival Tickets and Glasses - on sale now

To simplify the system, after some confusion last year, we will be selling festival entry tickets, masterclass tickets, glasses, and train tickets seperately. Glasses and entry are on sale now, masterclass tickets will be on sale early in the new year, with train tickets available to buy from early March.
Please note: glasses can be purchased in advance, but will only be available to collect on the day from the festival. Also, a train ticket is not required to attend the festival, but you can take a train ride during the day if you wish – our standard fares apply.
