Cool Events column: Do you get giddy for gin?

Sarah Bygrave has picked out some great local events for you to attend this month, including a gin festival, a big doggie do at Willen Lake and a 1940s vintage weekend.

May I have your attention please! I have found some brilliant things to do this month – here are my top picks…

The 4th, 5th and 6th of May will see MK11 host its second ever Gin Festival Weekender.

I am a massive fan of trying new cocktails and this is the perfect chance to try different gins and mixers amongst fellow gin enthusiasts.

With live music, delicious BBQ food and free entry, I’d suggest leaving the whole weekend free to enjoy all the festivities!

Stantonbury Theatre is hosting the latest work of Jim Cartwright, the award winning writer behind Little Voice, on May 8th.

Two is a ‘gritty yet heart warming look at northern life filled with pathos and humour’. Set in a local pub, the story follows customers passing through telling their stories, including one which brings a secret tragedy back to the surface.

Calling all dog owners – The Big Doggie Do is back at Willen Lake South for 2018! This free event is perfect for dog lovers with stalls, entertainment, have-a-goagility and K9 aqua sports for everyone to enjoy.

Pop down between 12 and 5pm across the weekend of the 26th to check it out.

Finally, why not step back in time and enjoy the glory and glamour of days gone by in fine style by attending Bletchley Park’s Springtime 1940s Vintage Weekend.

Across the weekend of the 26th May, there will be live music, street food, a collection of vintage vehicles, lawn games and much, much more.

Tickets are going fast from so make sure you don’t miss out on this fabulous event.
