Leap into 2020 with the Gin & Rum Express on Keighley & Worth Valley Railway lets get this train back on the tracks!

Following on from hosting this successful 2 year & well attended event, we are delighted to be adding by the request of our amazing customers Rum to the menu for 2020! In 2019 we ran the event on the 1920s Pullman carriage which was delightful for both us and customer alike.

In 2020 we are back on the 1950s classics carriage and will be leaping into the event, after all the date we have for you only happens every 4 years..so any marriage proposals more than welcome ??

So here’s the bits you need to know!

Your Experience: On board you will experience tastings of four carefully selected exclusive small batch Gins or Rums with perfectly matched mixers, botanicals and clever new drinks brands on the market!

Our fabulous & knowledgeable experts will serve you in style on the 70 min journey along the scenic line, indeed famous in its own right for the film ‘The Railway Children’ which will be its 50th anniversary in 2020.

Before and after your taste sensation experience you can enjoy traveling up and down the heritage line, yes your Gin/Rum ticket also includes a KWVR Day RoverTicket (worth £18) So hop on board some of the other cosy carriages - even have pre/post drink on the on-board ‘Railway Bar’. You will need to show your Eventbrite ticket to the KWVR guard when asked please.

We had a good think about those big gin glasses in your cupboards at home, and to be fair we can’t fit anymore in ours so in 2020 we have classy Italian glassware tumblers to purchase on the day as a souvenir,along with a few little extras which will be revealed once you are on-board.

We are delighted to have ‘Tailors Gin & Rum of Leeds’ as our Guest Distillers on board, experts in there own right. Matt & Jam own this drinks brand, as well as owning a Speakeasy bar in the ‘Grand Arcade’ Leeds, which is a Tailors by the day! We know these guys dress to impress so see who’s going to beat Matt in is suit and Jam in here delightful stylish attire...handmade to perfection!

As well as your Gin/Rum experience we have organised special online codes with the other Gin & Rum Companies, that will be displayed on the exclusive menus then you can purchase your favourite drink after the day!

Some other important info you need to know:

You can board the train at any station along the line but you must be at Oxenhope Station at your booked time for your experience, check in at with the Bronte Bars & Events Team in the booking office before boarding the ‘Gin/Rum Express Experience’ carriage, where you will be given wristbands.

If you haven't been on board with us before be prepared for a fabulous day, we are all a friendly happy bunch of peeps that want to make your day a truly memorable experience!

Due to the layout of the train we recommend to book in even numbers, we aim to sit you next to each other but we may have to seat one of your party in a aisle seat opposite!
