Diners can head down the rabbit hole and indulge in an array of tempting treats at Kirkstall Abbey tomorrow, at a vibrant Mad Hatter's themed Teapot Gin Festival.

The festival takes its inspiration from the magical pages of Lewis Carroll's beloved tale of Alice In Wonderland, where for one night only diners will be treated to a secret gin party in the abbey's magnificent ruins.

Welcome to Wonderland

Taking place on Friday 3 August, the event will feature an array of delicious street food, cocktails, mocktails and craft beer, along with lashings of gin flavoured tea.

A licensed bar will be open throughout the evening, while DJs, live music and entertainment will also be on offer, including giant chess and Flamingo croquet.

For gin fans, there will be plenty of tempting options to enjoy provided by Tailors Botanical Gin Bar and Teetotal G&T, for those who would prefer a non-alcoholic option.
