A LOOK BACK AT THE 2018 COCKTAIL VILLAGE

Take a look back at all the highlights from last year's Cocktail Village, a world of pop-up bars, street food vendors and more, in our new home - located on bustling Brick Lane.

Last year saw our biggest hub to date - spread across three unique spaces, with the new addition of food trucks and a later finish of 11pm, yippeee! As with this year, entry was FREE with a £10 Festival Pass and saw a village of pop-up bars serving up some smashing cocktails.
