We always recommend that you meet your friends at The Hub so that everyone gets the full BCW experience but yes, you can collect wristbands for your friends. You’ll need to bring along their e-tickets for us to scan.
Yes, subject to availability. Wristbands are £15 on the Hub.
You need a ticket in order to swap it for a BCW wristband and guidebook. Your BCW wristband gives you access to each venues’ £5 signature cocktail. It also gives you access to exclusive festival events and a selection of food offers too.
The guidebook includes a handy map and all the information you’ll need to enjoy the festival.
If you visit the House of Suntory Hub on Friday or Saturday you’ll also be invited to enjoy some complimentary tastings of Roku Gin, Haku Vodka and Toki Whisky with the House of Suntory experts!
Yes. Your wristband is valid for the whole long weekend. That means you can dip into the festival for just one evening of cocktail sipping or enjoy all three days exploring venues and sampling their signature drinks.
Every venue we work with offers non-alcoholic beverages in some form, many although not all offer mocktails.
You must be aged 18+ to participate in Birmingham Cocktail Weekend.
Some venues do have a dress code. If a venue has a dress code it will be outlined in the guidebook. The most common dress code is ‘no trainers, sportswear or caps’.
You can buy 1 signature cocktail by showing your wristband at a participating venue’s bar. If you’re with a group, all group members will need to show their wristbands too.
There are no restrictions on how many times you and your group can order but we’d encourage you to explore the city and sample different signature cocktails to get the most out of the festival experience.
As always, every venue retains the right to decline service as they see fit.
