UK Tiki Fest is Coming & You Can Win Tickets!

This October see not only our very own Best of Vintage Manchester Awards but also a fantastic week long celebration of all things Tiki.

There will be a pop up area called Rum Street on the party weekend of the event 19th/20th where you can learn everything you’d ever wanted to know about rum from some of the city’s best bartenders.

The whole week long event is being led by event curators Captain Lyndon Higginson of The Liars Club and Bart Murphy of Hula Lounge- two of Manchester’s leading Tiki bars.


Guests will be able to buy tickets/wristbands here – UK Tiki Fest Facebook page and pick which day or days they want to attend- but we have a Tiki-tastic giveaway where you can win a pair of wristbands for the whole weekend worth £36 each!

Lyndon Higginson of The Liars Club said: “This is year one for the Uk Tiki Fest and we hope it will be the first of many, we want something to rival Tiki Oasis in San Diego. Our aim is to bring a Polynesian slice of Tiki mayhem to all the greatest bars of Manchester and further afield and drink rum!  Let’s get our Tiki on Manchester!”

UK Tiki Fest will also be looking to crown a Miss Tiki UK and Mr Tiki UK who will be the two people who most embody the spirit of Tiki in looks, banter and skills. The prize will be a Tiki hamper (with a lot of rum), a professional photo shoot and (of course) the adoration of the Tiki world.

Those wanting to enter the Miss and Mr Tiki UK competition can apply by submitting the below information to

  • A picture of themselves that encapsulates them at their most Tiki
  • A bio stating why they think they should be the winner
  • A description of a special skill (the more freaky, the better).  This will need to be displayed in public at TIki Fest if selected for the final.

Entries submitted so far can be seen on the competition’s Facebook page –
