Rum & Reggae: Here’s what happened at the Jamaican-themed Saturday festival

Adam McManus | 14th August 2018



The Rum and Reggae festival was a spectacular night filled with music, laughter and friends from all different backgrounds; there to celebrate two things only… Rum and Reggae.


All around people were seen enjoying the drinks. Rums from from around the world were placed inside of the Bowlers Exhibition Centre in Manchester where guests could taste all things rum.





Upon entering the room filled with Caribbean vibes, drinks vouchers meant there was no need for cash with free flow Rum punches and a Rum Atlas. The Atlas is filled full of Rums that were available at the festival.


You can take a journey around the world in just one sitting. The West Indies, Cuba, South America and the United States all were offering some great tasting rums in just one room.





Everybody was there enjoying themselves, dancing away with a giant smile across their face, all having one thing in common – a love of Rum!



With a huge stage centred at the front of the festival, people were enjoying Reggae music from some extremely talented acts. The Reggae music got everyone up and dancing. The Rum most likely helped too, giving everyone that buzz to have a good night.





With the smooth Reggae music helping light up the place and bring everyone into a mellow vibe, it’s definitely a must go to festival for next year. The carnival dancers and steel drum performances bounced through the room. New friends were made at the incredible festival.




Let’s not forget about the food, because you cannot have a Rum and Reggae festival without some delicious Caribbean food on offer. A very famous dish, chicken, rice and peas proved to be extremely popular, having everyone gather round to ask for seconds.



The traditional Jamaican food had everyone going to grab more.




Next year’s tickets will be something you will be wanting to grab your hands on.
