Beer Festival 2017

Cuerden Valley Beer Festival


This years beer festival will take place in our beautiful Walled Orchard from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th June. The bar will open at 1.00pm each day and will close at midnight on Friday and Saturday, 10.00 pm on Sunday. As usual there will be hot food available and live music from local entertainers. All tastes are catered for – there will be over 40 beers including Bitter, Lager, Cider as well as wine and soft drinks. Families and dogs are welcome, though dogs must be kept on leads in the Orchard.

Entrance is £5 on Friday and Saturday, £2 on Sunday (FREE if wearing Friday or Saturdays wristband) which includes a limited edition commemorative glass for the first 1,000 visitors, a programme and free entertainment!

Please note that Cuerden Valley Park Trust operate a strict ID25 policy. If you are fortunate enough to look under 25 years of age, you will be asked to produce identification to prove you are 18 before you will be allowed in.

Please note that our bar is staffed entirely by volunteers and whilst every effort will be made to serve you as quickly as possible, there may be times at peak periods when you have to queue.

Cask bitter takes 24 hours to settle and does not keep for very long. Therefore,we can only order as much as we think we can sell during the weekend. If demand is unexpectedly high, it may be that certain beers will become unavailable, particularly on the Sunday of the festival. However, every effort will be made to ensure keg beers are available throughout.

If you have a personal favourite that you would like to see at this or future Festivals, please let us know using the contact form at the foot of this page. Please be aware that it is our policy to only source beers from micro breweries.
