The Rum & Reggae Festival is set to light up Leicester when it arrives at Athena on 24th August and we’ve got some tickets to give away!

On entry at the Rum & Reggae Festival, guests will be greeted with a welcome Rum Punch and handed a Rum Atlas – a pocket-sized guide detailing the fine selection of hand-picked and exciting rums available from all corners of the globe. From exotic fruits and dark aromatics to well-rounded aged rums and young blends, guests will be spoilt for choice. They include the award-winning La Hechicera that’s aged up to 21 years; the best-selling high proof rum in the world Wray & Nephew (90% of rum sales in Jamaica are of Wray and Nephew); the first release from Scotland’s Dark Matter Distillers, Dark Matter Spiced Rum; and Pineapple Rum – never intended for resale and a tribute to the esteemed Reverend Stiggins whose favourite drink was the “pineapple rum” in the Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens.

The Rum & Reggae Festival also features a rum cocktail bar and for those wanting a bit of fizz to their drink – a Cubanisto beer bar serving up the premium-spirit beer drink, complete with its UV-light glow-in-the-dark properties!

If the drinks aren’t enough to get you excited there’ll be carnival dancers and steel drum performances galore alongside the live reggae performances. Plus there’s also a photo booth – free of charge(!) – to capture those memorable festival moments.
