The seventh annual UK RumFest (and unofficial ironic Hawaiian shirt convention) returns to London 12th – 13th October.
RumFest UK, the world’s largest rum exhibition,will take place Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th October 2013, at London’s ExCeL Exhibition Centre. The event will showcase over 400 rums from around the world.
Promising “a journey of rum discovery” Rumfest will feature the usual suspects – brand ambassadors, top cocktologists, Hemingway fanatics – as well as famous rum bars, live music performances, seminars, tastings, and a Tropical Food Market.
For an additional twenty quid on top of the standard twenty-five pound ticket, rum geeks gain entry to a premium area called Connoisseur’s Cove (yes, we also think that sounds a bit EuroDisney). The area will be used to showcase extremely rare rums and to provide a more intimate educational experience.
Ticket prices: Standard Saturday or Sunday: £25; Premium Saturday or Sunday (inc. Connoisseur’s Cove): £45
Weekend Tickets (inc. Connoisseur’s Cove): £80
