The sixth September edition of Leeds Rum Festival is set to be its biggest yet, according to producers.

Rolling Social Events is cementing itself as an events company that prides itself not only on showcasing the best in spirits but putting a spotlight on fun and education. Accompanied by music and entertainment, as well as food, Leeds Rum Festival is a premier all-round experience for rum lovers.

Amongst the exciting rum brands on offer, Nusa Caña, an Indonisian rum “packed full of tropical flavour charged with the attitude and energy of today’s Bali” will be sponsoring the occasion whilst returning sponsor Three Cents will be creating mixers inspired by bartenders for bartenders with a fusion of premium sodas to act as the ideal accompaniment for your rum throughout the day-long festival.

The swt-up will also feature a Monin Rum bar, where you’ll be able to shake up your usual rum concoctions with a range of tropical classic cocktails- each with a twist. Think Piña Coladas, spiced mango rum punches and watermelon daiquiris.

If rum isn’t your usual tipple, there’s ample opportunity to taste test a range of local craft beers on the day too.

Tickets to Leeds Rum Festival will cost £30 each and include access to all of the 100+ rum brands, as well as the opportunity to partake in several masterclasses, including talks from Satinago de Cuba, Nusa Caña and Speciality brands. 

Lee Jones, Rolling Social Events says: “It feels like only yesterday that we were announcing the first Rum Festival and here we are gearing up for our sixth, back once again at Leeds Corn Exchange.
