THE Shepparton Festival is presenting its newest offering ‘Gin on the Lawn’ on Sunday March 12 in the lush surrounds of Findon House Gardens.

With a stellar line up including indie folk favourites The Peeks, funk soul six piece The Marrionettes and brooding acoustic duo Miles and Simone, this afternoon event gives Shepparton a taste of the best in new, original music.

Guests will be welcomed with a complementary festival gin cocktail and can relax in the beautiful gardens and be treated to an afternoon of exceptional music and great company, with thanks to major sponsors Shepparton BMW.

Shepparton Festival Chair Fiona Smolenaars says Gin on the Lawn is an event Festival goers have been waiting for, for a long time.

“The Shepparton Festival has been programming music events for a number of years, but we really wanted to produce a music event with a point of difference,” explains Ms Smolenaars.

“We are excited to have this unique event, featuring such a great line up of musical acts, in a fun, outdoor venue that really encourages an atmosphere of relaxing with friends and family.”

“Gin on the Lawns is a great addition to the already amazing event line up for the 2017 Shepparton Festival – Mapping Shepp.”

For those that want to ‘kick on’ the Shepparton Festival has partnered with the Hotel Australia, who will host the official after party for Gin on the Lawn.

Tickets for Gin on the Lawn are available now, but will sell quickly. To book visit www.sheppartonfestival.org.au
