We're giving away tickets to the Gin To My Tonic festival.

The Gin To My Tonic Festival will be held at Hartlepool Borough Hall on Saturday, February 8 and will give people the chance to enjoy gins from across the UK and beyond.

A spokeswoman from the festival said: “Each gin stocked behind our bars has been selected based on outstanding craftmanship, delightful flavor and the most enjoyable drinking experiences. What’s more, we believe gin should be served correctly which is why we offer 35ml serves (as opposed to the average 25ml) as standard.”

The festival will feature a range of flavours like passion fruit, peach, pineapple, violet and watermelon, as well as a host of mixer options and limited edition gin flavours such as apple and elderflower gin and yuzu and schezuan pepper gin.
