Celebrate the very best of independent Sussex food and drink producers under one roof at Brighton Gin’s “Meet the Sussex Makers” on November 30th at the Old Market in Hove.

Brighton Gin will be joined by award-winning local artisan producers to showcase an exciting selection of fine food and drinks, with tasters and samples and inspiration for festive feasts and gift ideas.

With two separate sessions and just 250 tickets available for each, lucky attendees will be able to discover, sample and buy the finest food, most dazzling drinks and gorgeous gifts that Sussex has to offer.

Kathy Caton, Founder of Brighton Gin and organiser of the festival, said:

“Sussex is blessed with some incredible food and drink producers and brands, plus some real personalities, so this Festive Food Market is a great chance to celebrate them and help attendees crank up their Christmas shopping a notch or two. Visitors will have a fantastic opportunity to try a sensational selection of the finest Sussex produce while getting up close and personal with the entrepreneurs and makers behind our county’s unassailable food and drink scene. It’s a day not to be missed!”
