    We had a brilliant time at Cocktails in the City. There were more tables and cover this year which really made a difference and the cocktails were fantastic. There were 7 of us so we got through a lot of them and there wasn't one that disappointed! As usual, the atmosphere was great. We had to leave early to have an early dinner before an evening event so my only suggestion is to have more food stalls to cater for more substantial lunches and dinners. We will definitely be back!

    The man from the PR company offering beers was quite rude when I took a beer. I had no idea it wasn't free. There was no signage or promotional items so I thought it was from the organisers. The activities were good but I found the people ( some bartenders and people at entry) quite rude, like they didn't want to be there and were done with the crowd. The live music was quite good as was the silent disco.
