Leicester pub saves disappointed gin fans

By Conor de Smith

Leicester pub The Black Horse has rescued gin fans left disappointed by the cancellation of Leicester Gin Festival.

The festival, scheduled for November 9 and 10, was cancelled after the organiser went into administration.

The Black Horse, Aylestone, has announced that it will now hold an event of its own on the same dates.

Those with a ticket to the festival can get a G&T and a talk with one of a number of distillers that will be at the event for free.

There will be more than 100 gins at the pub’s gin festival.

There will also be live music and food available at the traditional pub.
