The popular drinks festival returns for a winter edition
We’re so pleased to see that drinks shop Thirsty is reprising its Thirstyfest event for a winter edition, set to bring us great food, great drinks and plenty more fun each and every weekend starting on 25 and 26 November and continuing throughout December.
The venue is the yard behind Mackay’s, near the Grafton Centre, and the vibe is après-ski – complete with plenty of warming tipples to try and even a winter boules track. There will be a covered area and plenty of heaters to keep people toasty, and Thirsty are also promising to deliver some of Cambridge’s best-loved street food traders including Steak & Honour, Guerrilla Kitchen and Provenance Kitchen.
“As always with Thirsty, we like to take the stuffy out of the drinks scene and place the booze where it works best – alongside great food, with great company and in a funky place,” says Sam Owens, founder of Thirsty. “We’re dead chuffed to hook up with the Mackay family to hold the winter events in the yard behind their store on East Road. They’re a Cambridge institution, a family-owned independent business (like us) and a great laugh.”
Thirstyfest will be open every Friday and Saturday up to and including 22, 23 December. Search Winter Thirstyfest on Facebook for more info.
