The event will see brewers and gin companies coming together along with Goyt Wines to provide drinks for every palette.

There will be live music and hot food too but Nev was keen to not make the event a food festival, but have the focus on the drink available.

Nev said: “Ticket sales show it's not just people from Whaley Bridge and the High Peak coming but there are those making the journey who are coming from Staffordshire and Dewsbury so people are really excited about this.

"I’d love this to become a more regular thing on the Whaley social calendar and we have one in the spring or summer and then a second one later in the year.

”It’s great to show off the space and become a community hub.”

The event will take place from 11am to 6pm with tickets just £5 per person.
