Julian Wadden’s Bike Ride for The Christie!

If you pass our Didsbury office on Friday the 20th December, you may see a very tired team member of Julian Wadden in a Christmas jumper, peddling on an exercise bike…no you’re not seeing things! This Friday is our Charity bike ride to the North Pole and this is all in aid of the wonderful, Didsbury based charity, The Christie! We have been fundraising throughout this year and this will be our last event of 2019.

The Christie does some wonderful things and I am sure most of us have come into some form of contact with them so, please do pop in to have a laugh, to donate if you wish or, for a mince pie (or two)! This will take place from 9am to 5pm so pop in any time.

You can also donate to this cause by clicking here.

Didsbury gin festival

Gin mixologist Hilary has carefully selected a range of gins to suit all tastes, which will be available on the bar under the headings Local, Fruity and World Gins. Hilary has worked closely with Peter Spanton Beverages, who specialise in premium choice tonics. Check out their fabulous range of classic and unique flavours.

These are all laid out in the drinks menu, with a description and the suggested “perfect mix” of tonic or other mixer & garnish to pair with your choice of gin.

Street Food is available with single or sharing options, along with music provided by talented local musicians.

The gin exhibitors will be selling their products on the night. Why not try before you buy, as all their gins are available from the bar. You can order at any point during the evening and your bottle(s) will be ready for you to collect as you are leaving.

Please note: The bars operate on a token system which can be purchased on the night from the Entrance Desk. Vouchers can be bought in multiples of £5 and are worth 1 measure (25ml) of gin plus tonic and garnish.

Didsbury Gin Festival is much more than just a gin drinking session; it is an opportunity to socialise, discuss, exchange ideas and most of all have fun!
