Join Grey Bear Bar Co.’s master mixologist Lloyd Brown on a trip down Hogarth’s Gin Lane. Lloyd will lead you through an evening of social history and gin!

The evening will cover the Georgian period of gin-fuelled debauchery to the modern craft gin movement. All this will be set against the atmospheric setting of Shire Hall’s Georgian courtroom and cells.

The evening includes a g&t on arrival followed by two cocktails and two gin samples, and a smorgasbord of Dorset delights.
