Taking place from the 14th - 20th October, the first ever UK Tiki Fest is set to bring some tropical heat to the gloomy streets of Manchester with seven days of live music, arts, fire madness and lots and LOTS of rum. 

UK Tiki Fest will see Manchester turn tropical for a weeklong extravaganza of Tiki inspired fun. Venues across the city will come together, led by event curators Captain Lyndon Higginson of The Liars Club and Bart Murphy of Hula Lounge, to create a week long festival of all things Tiki with great deals on drinks and a series of must visit events.

To get involved rum fans need to get themselves a UK Tiki Fest wristband, available for just £5 through DesignMyNight, which will entitle them to entrance to any of the week’s events along with cocktails from the bars for just £5.
