What’s On?

Let’s Celebrate! The Great British Beer Festival is 40 this year so we are raising a glass to the old and embracing the new. Here’s a snapshot of the exciting things at the festival in 2017.

To celebrate the Great British Beer Festival’s 40th anniversary we have included a range of exciting entertainment for you to enjoy.

Of course, beer is still at the heart of the festival, so explore our carefully selected range of real ale, cider and perry in our “Beer Finder” or go to the cutting edge with the selector with our showcase of international craft beers and delve into our new inclusion of English Wine.

We hope this will help to provide you with a guide on what great flavours and names to expect to help you plan your visit, you never know – you might find your new favourite this year! Every year we invite breweries to come and serve you their great beers. Is your favourite Brewery Bar going to be at the Great British Beer Festival? Find out!

Take home something special: we’ll be hosting book signings by some of the most popular authors in beer writing as well as launching some brand new books in the official festival shop. Check out who will be at the festival when to ensure you don’t miss your favourite.

Looking for a little more? Why not book in a tutored tastings session? We’ll help you navigate the unknown. A bit of a foody? Don’t forget to check out the street food vendors – you’re bound to find something you’ll like. Or if you’re just into good music, check out our entertainment section to find out who’s on the festival stage when.

Alternatively, enjoy our range of buskers situated throughout the festival for you to enjoy.
