Gin Night: Time for a Tanqueray
- Fri 01 Mar 2019
- 6:30 pm
Anthony Burgess was a great innovator of new words and languages, but many people do not realise that he also invented a number of cocktails.
Drawing on private notebooks from the archive of the Burgess Foundation, we are pleased to present the first in a series of themed tasting evenings on 1 March 2019.
The highlight of the event will be an opportunity to enjoy three gin-based cocktails made from Burgess’s recipes, accompanied by a selection of canapés based on meals to be found in the pages of his novels.
The evening will include cocktail music, a talk about the history of gin, and a slideshow presentation about Burgess and drinking.
We hope that you can join us for this eccentric cultural extravaganza.
Tickets, including a gin and tonic on arrival plus three Burgess cocktails and canapés, are priced at £25 per head. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. Buy your ticket here.
All money raised supports the charitable work of the Anthony Burgess Foundation.
