A Huge Rum Festival Is Coming To London This October
Do you know why these people are having so much fun? Rum.

Rum Fest is returning to London for its 10th anniversary year — this time with over 400 rums available to try.

The festival, which takes place at Earl's Court from 22-23 October is apparently the world's largest celebration of the spirit.

We've no idea what's happening here but you can bet it involves rum.

This year sees the return of Golden Tot Tokens, which will allow super enthusiastic rum connoisseurs to sample ultra premium and rare rums, which cost more than £200 per bottle.

Can you guess what they're tasting? (Hint: it's rum)

There will be a rum action sponsored by Christie's which will see precious and hard to find bottles auctioned off, plus a packed line-up of seminars, workshops, tastings… you name it, it's probably happening (as long as it involves rum).

Hang on, I've almost got it. Is it.. rum?

We're particularly taken with the idea of a Sunday 'rum roast', which we like to imagine is like a giant carvery but just a lot more… rummy.

Rum Fest is at ILEC Conference Centre, Earl's Court, SW6 1UD, from 22-23 October. Tickets can be purchased via the website.
