Bedfordshire Gin & Whisky Festival Returns to Leighton Buzzard Railway

Living Magazines Bedfordshire Gin & Whisky Festival

The 2023 Bedfordshire Gin & Whisky Festival will take place at the Leighton Buzzard Railway on Sunday 7 May.

Now in its fourth year, the 2023 edition of this popular event will take place over the King’s Coronation Bank Holiday weekend, so what better way to toast the new monarch?

Taking place from 10.30am until 4.30pm in the engine shed at Page’s Park, early bird entry tickets are now on sale for just £2, offering a third off the on-the-door entry price.

Around 60 whiskies, gins, other spirits and premixed cocktails will be available, with prices starting at just £1 per taste. Soft drinks will be on hand for designated drivers, and accompanied children, as well as hot food stand.

Locomotives not being used in service on the day will be available to view, as well as the railway’s popular guided Engine Shed Show.

For those who wish to take a break from the drams, an enhanced train service will be in operation from Page’s Park Station, departing very 70 minutes between 10.30am and 3.10pm.

Festival organiser Rocky Lancer said: ‘I’m delighted that the Leighton Buzzard Railway have agreed to host the Bedfordshire Whisky Festival again in 2023. With all the profits being donated to the railway, I’m looking forward to many customers enjoying the day and supporting a good cause at the same time.’
