The County Ground in Abington Avenue is gearing up to welcome drinkers in March next year - with over 60 different gins and 60 different rums up for grabs.

The founder of the Gin and Rum Festival, Bobby Nanua, said: “I am delighted to have the Gin and Rum Festival returning to Northampton County Cricket Ground after the success of the sold-out event last year.

"We have had a fantastic year in 2019 hosting the festival in over 30 cities.

"It is a great pleasure to bring the festival back to Northampton and this year it will be even bigger and better."

The event will also see live entertainment, street food vendors, and of course, the stars of the show, gin and rum for guests to try.

The event will take place over two sessions on Saturday, March 14 2020.

Doors will open for the afternoon session from 12:30pm to 5pm, followed by an evening session, which takes place from 6:30pm to 11pm.
