The Rum Festival Chester Racecourse 2018
The Rum Festival – Coming to Chester March 2018
A new stop for next year, the first travelling Rum Festival tour is coming to The Race Course in Chester. vBringing you rum, cocktails, food and music from around the globe!
On Saturday, March 24th, The Pavillion Suite will host a brand new and original event.
The Rum Festival, will introduce you to over 100 different rums from around the globe combined with live entertainment, great food and free giveaways.
Lucy Douglas, the founder of the festival says, “The growth in the rum market and evolution in the variety of flavours and styles has been phenomenal over the last couple of years. Having been to some amazing Beer Festivals and Gin Festivals we decided to set up something for rum drinkers, somewhere fun where they could try new and exciting rums whilst listening to live music, eating great food and be surrounded by like-minded people.”
Rum is the most diverse and versatile of the spirits. Great on its own over ice, perfectly blended with your favourite mixer, or shaken up in a cocktail, rum is the perfect drink for any occasion. With a vast and diverse range of production methods and being produced all over the globe in varying climates, every rum is different and there is something for everyone.
So what can you expect?

On arrival, you will be greeted by a Rum’un; handed your Rum Festival glass (a gift for you to take home!) and a brochure, full of information on all the rums you can try, fun facts about each of the suppliers and the suggested garnish to compliment your drink.
Rum can be grouped into six flavour categories and that is how you’ll find them at The Rum Festival. White, Dark, Golden, Spiced and Flavoured; but don’t worry if you know nothing about rum there will be a welcoming team there to help you choose.
Throughout the event there will be live entertainment and dancing – including steel drums and salsa; sampling, the opportunity to talk to rum industry experts, tasty food to buy and above all lots of fun.
At the Chester event, The Rum Festival’s cocktail team will also be on hand to mix you some of the tastiest rum cocktails on the planet.
