Joy comes to George Street in St Albans this October, as the hugely popular Gin and Jazz festival returns!
The festival is a fantastic showcase for George St retailers and hospitality venues where the historic street is abuzz with live Swing Jazz music, fabulous food, gin bars and of course- fantastic independent shopping.
Spread over 2 days, and free for everyone to enjoy, it takes place on Friday 22nd October from 6-10 pm and Saturday 23rd October from 2-10 pm.
Now in its 3rd year, the event is organised by the George St Business community. Sarah Gillow of George Street’s contemporary jewellery store Galio said:
“We are delighted that George Street Gin and Jazz is back! It’s a fantastic opportunity to shine a light on wonderful, historic George Street and to offer people a unique, boutique shopping and hospitality experience. George St has a long-standing reputation for hosting street festivals, and this year’s Gin & Jazz will not disappoint!”
Sean Hughes, of Dylan’s on George Street said:
“Gin and Jazz is a great way for people to explore, shop, eat and drink their way along George Street. With specialist Gins, cocktails and live music, the street comes alive, and people can sip and discover the many wonderful businesses this historic street is home to.”
Denise Parsons, manager at St Albans BID who have sponsored the event said:
“Gin and Jazz showcases the many vibrant independent retailers and food and drink businesses on George Street, a street which is often under-explored. It’s free for all to enjoy and has been spread out over two days this year, to help ease crowd control.”
