Manchester Rum Festival returns in 2019 for its third year – and tickets have just gone on sale. With previous festivals selling out months in advance, the festival has expanded this year to include both afternoon and evening sessions (choose from noon-5pm or 6-11pm) as well as a new seminar room with expert talks from rum aficionados and creators. The 2019 festival takes place in Barton Arcade’s Brickworks event space. If you’re anything like us, it’s something to look forward to as you stare out at grey skies for the foreseeable future. Furthermore, ticket prices have been frozen at £20, despite the new and expanded festival programme. Event sponsors include a returning Mancunian favourite, Revolución de Cuba, as the festival bar supporter, offering a variety of rum cocktails through their Cuban bar experience. Home of excellent steak, Alston Bar and Beef, return as one of the festival’s food vendors and the festival shop is hosted by Altrincham’s new Marigot Bay Bar and Café, run by festival organiser, Dave Marsland.
