A FOOD and gin festival is coming to a venue near Oswestry this summer.

The new event is set to be the first of its kind held at The Venue at Park Hall this June.

Visitors will have an opportunity to sample a wide range of high quality gins from major national suppliers as well as local craft distillers.

There will also be a wide selection of artisan food stalls to browse as well as craft stalls, barbecue and live music for entertainment.

Matt Lee, general manager at The Venue, said: “This new event will be a fantastic addition to Oswestry’s list of visitor attractions.

“We expect to draw people in to the town from across Shropshire, Wrexham, Powys and beyond.”
