Gin tasting experience at Nottingham museum

A gin-tasting experience with a difference will be on offer in Eastwood this April, as the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum’s Gin and Gaslight events return for 2023.

The next event, on Friday 14 April will give guests a taste of Victorian decadence, with a chance to learn about and sample five gins, whilst experiencing this award-winning museum at night.

On arrival guests will be greeted by their Victorian hosts with an aperitif, before taking in the magic of the museum and its historic rooms and exhibitions by gas light.

The gin tasting will then begin, learning all about their history and flavour profiles.

This is a popular, intimate event so spaces are limited. Tickets are £15 plus a small booking fee and can be booked via event brite

The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is where this literary legend was born on 11 September 1885. Only 30 minutes from Nottingham’s city centre, the Museum is a must-see for fans of literature, and for those wanting to delve deeper into Nottingham’s literary heritage.

Step back in time to experience the traditional Victorian wash house, see the parlour; a room only for special guests, feel the warmth of the fire in the kitchen and have a wander around the parental and other bedrooms. The museum’s permanent exhibition features items from Lawrence’s family and even paintings created by the author himself.
