Tickets for Catford's first gin festival are selling fast.

The festival will take place on October 7 and 8 and tickets cost £15 each.

Gin fans can attend the festival during two time slots on the Saturday, either from 11am until 4pm or from 5pm until 10pm.

They can also attend the festival on Sunday from 11am until 5pm.

Forrest Hill Gin Club is putting on the event with local group, Team Catford.

Charlotte Rose, who runs the club and is an organiser of the event, said: "It’s going to be unlike any other gin festival. First, it’s only £15 which is a third of the price of most festivals.

"They sometimes have over 50 distillers. Who could and should drink that many shots? Instead, we’ve selected award-winning distillers who really know their craft and strive to make amazing gins."

Confirmed producers so far include Pothecary, Graveney, Skully, Ragnarok, Colonsay, Old Bakery, brand new to the market Mary Rose Gin and locally produced Mean London Dry.

Chris Rodgerson, of Greenwich-based Mean Gin, said: "We’re incredibly excited about Catford Gin Festival – both the opportunity to be there at the beginning of something this exciting for the south London gin scene, and for local gin aficionados to have the chance to sample our gin and meet us in person."
