Abbeyfest – festive fun with a difference

Anyone up for a night out? To raise funds for us? Enjoying festive fun in one of Shrewsbury’s most iconic buildings? Sounds good … read on…

We are proud to be launching a brand new event- AbbeyFest – a collaboration between Shrewsbury Abbey, and us.

It is a drinks festival with a difference – providing a choice of beers, gin and drinks, with food, live music, and other entertainment – in the gorgeous surroundings of Shrewsbury Abbey. Abbeyfest is being held on Friday, 26th November, from 5pm and, on Saturday, 27th November, from 2pm giving shoppers the chance to pop in and enjoy some food and drinks before they hit the shops! It is being delivered as part of the Abbey’s new events programme and is being run by Darren Tomkins of Gindifferent in the Market Hall.

Lizzy Coleman, events and fundraising officer for Lingen Davies, said everyone involved with the charity was very excited to be working in partnership with Darren and the staff at The Abbey, and Abbeyfest is going to be a great addition to the town’s calendar.

“It’s great to be able to organise events again,” she said. “We are very pleased at this collaboration and AbbeyFest will be a great event for Shrewsbury and the wider area.

“People will be able to book a table in advance, or turn up and enjoy our well stocked bars, entertainment, and food choices, in the wonderful surroundings of The Abbey.”
