Welcome to the website for the fifth Lions Beer Festival!
Please use our Facebook link to follow our updates on beer selections/live music act announcements and to use our live beer voting system during the festival.
Last years beer festival (2012) was again a huge success with some great beers, ciders and entertainment. It was really good to see so many new faces as well as our regular supporters.
Would you like to sponsor a beer to promote your company? Click here *sponsorship* It's a great deal with free entry for your guests.
This year we hope that you will join us once again to drink some choice selected real ale and cider all in the name of raising money for the Lions charity. Check out the beer list section that will be updated as we order new beers to try.
We are now well established in the marquee on the Grandstand Side, which for this year is bigger still so will will be having a seperate cider bar!!.
We raise a very reasonable sum of money which all goes to the chosen charities, mostly local good causes (none of the staff are paid and we even have to buy our own beer!)
For the fifth time, we are proud to be able to offer
you fine seekers of good beer, a beer festival that both seeks to educate the tastes
of the ordinary man by introducing a selection of beers for you to try and by doing
so help raise money for local charities! What a great idea, proving the fact that beer
is good for you (IN THE EDITORS OPINION!).
Friday will be open slightly earlier from 4pm to 10pm
Saturday from 12 noon until 10pm.
There will of course be live entertainment and the line up will follow as we make arrangements. Even the bands support us with no charge (with the odd beer thrown in), so many thanks to them too.
Saturday afternoon the music will be provided by the very popular Jake Henry and then beautiful voice of Kristy Gallacher.
Again we are just spoiling you!
Catering will be supplied by Jay and the guys from Shire Jacket Potatoes who are usually pitched in the Market Square, providing essential beer food as well as curry so you shouldn't go hungry.
