Ipswich Town Hall was a hive of activity this weekend as a national gin festival returned for a second year.

The event was very nearly a sell out and repeated on the success from last year.

There were more 100 different types of gins on offer, as well as street food, live music and master-classes in mixing across the three-day event.

Rosie Peters, front of house supervisor, said everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

“It’s been a great atmosphere, with beautiful weather,” she said.

“The town hall is a really nice venue. We were here pretty much exactly this time last year and we are seeing a lot of the same faces, so that’s always good.”

She added that organisers were hopeful that the event would return again next year.

“We like coming to Ipswich,” she said.

“We may be coming back next year, if you will have us!”
