Speaking about five years of Birmingham Cocktail Weekend, founder of Living For The Weekend Alex Nicholson-Evans comments:
“What an incredible five years for Birmingham Cocktail Weekend! We’re thrilled to be celebrating our fifth birthday with what we’re certain will be the biggest and best festival to date. We’ve got an extra day of cocktail fun, a record number of the city’s best-loved bars signed up and, most importantly, more signature cocktails to enjoy!
“Birmingham Cocktail Weekend is all about getting people to step outside of their comfort zone, encouraging them to venture further than their local to discover and experiment with new flavour combinations. With wristbands already flying off the shelf, more cocktail-revellers than ever before are expected to visit our incredible line-up of venues, and we can’t wait to welcome them all.”
