A fantastic day - weather was perfect and my friend and I loved the whole concept. Tried some great cocktails and enjoyed making one at a demonstration. Great idea to paint tiles at one bar. Could have been more choice of food. Will definitely attend again

Thoroughly enjoyable day; great weather, a good range of cocktails although some gluten free potato vodka would have been nice. Well organised and a good crowd. Happily spent 6 hours there. Will definitely look out for next years one.
