York Gin Night In - VE Day special

About

VE DAY GOES ONLINE WITH GIN DRINKING 1940S KNEES-UP & SING-SONG

A gin company is running an online 1940s knees-up and gin-tasting session to celebrate VE Day.

York Gin has been running fun Facebook Live quizzes each Friday at 6pm on its Facebook page.

This week, there will be live songs from the 1940s as well as wartime cocktails, a fun quiz - and a roll of honour for veterans from the war and the heroes helping us through the coronavirus crisis.

There's also a gin tasting to coincide with the launch of the company's new miniature tasting pack of its five gins.

The Facebook Live shows have been seen thousands of times - and are available as recordings for those who can't make the live event on Friday 8 May at 6pm.

The York Gin team have researched the history books and found the gin cocktails popular in the 1940s. They'll prepare them live on screen - then drink them.

Meanwhile part-time workers Sam Hird and Kirsty Hughes, both studying singing at prestigious music schools in London, will provide a sound of the 1940s.

And a just-for-fun quiz has been designed to take viewers back 75 years with gin and history questions.

Presenters Susannah Baines and Jo Hird both normally work in the York Gin shop. They've already fronted five successful shows since the lockdown began.

Said Jo: "Lots of people have said how much they're enjoying our shows. They're a real highlight of the week for them. And we love presenting them.

"The shows are light-hearted and topical with plenty of York Gin. This week we'll be paying our respects to the heroes from the war years and today - while giving viewers lots to smile and laugh about as a much-needed released from the lockdown."

The event js free with a voluntary donation to York's St Leonard's Hospice - struggling financially because its fundraising efforts have been stopped by the current lockdown measures.
