Stunning Gin Tent coming to 2018 GO Rugby Cardiff Festival

At our 2017 Cardiff Festival our Craft Cider Showcase proved to be extremely popular with supporters and players alike. Who would have guessed? 

Since then, we have been in touch with some of our regular teams about what they would like to see added to the festival.
"More Craft Cider!" That's in a blog post to come.
"Expanding the rugby grades" See our Mixed Ability post for the first addition. Our profile on Didi Rugby is coming next. 

One of the things our GO family said to us in particular was, "I really fancied a G&T once I'd finished." 
Say no more! We got in touch with one of our very popular host bars from the 2016 Golden Oldies World Festival; Chapel 1877. These guys know their gin. Richard and Sarah from Chapel 1877 were very excited about what they could do with the expanded members of the GO Rugby family. 

Sarah: "I loved looking after the teams at the 2016 Festival. There were so many amazing people from all over the world and I can't wait to work at this year's festival." 

Richard: "We love our gin and I am really looking forward to sharing our gin world with everyone at the GO Rugby Festival. Making cocktails, meeting new people and experiencing an atmosphere that only you guys at GO Rugby can create."

Richard has been at the forefront of Chapel 1877's new gin classes they host in the city.

Richard "We set up the classes as we felt we couldn't just keep our passion and knowledge of gin to ourselves. What better way to showcase that than in a stunning stretch tent, bank holiday weekend, in the Cardiff sun!"

It's hard to argue with that Richard! Take a look at the mouth watering array of gins the Chapel team will be serving:

  • Monkey 47
  • Pinkster
  • SipSmith
  • Hendrix
  • Nordes
  • Sharish
  • Bombay
  • Brecon
  • Limbeck

Sarah: "My favourite gin cocktail is definitely is our Raspberry and Mint Pinkster. Nothing quenches your thirst like it!" 

I have a feeling our newest addition to the GO Rugby Festival is going to be very popular! Join us in the stunning stretch tent provided by Afon Events this bank holiday, 25th and 26th August. 

I look forward to seeing you all on and off the pitch, 

Paul Guest
GO Rugby Director
