Now that we are into the New Year its time to start thinking about what to do in the summer!
Firstly make sure that you buy your tickets for our 2017 festival and get the dates in your diary.
The organising committee has had a few months off and has already started planning for this year’s festival.
What’s new for 2017?
- a Gin Bar featuring local Gins and Fentimans Tonic waters.
- a Craft Keg Beer bar (to be confirmed).
- 2 extra caterers – Tandoori Naan Hut and Simply Cheesecake (see Food page for more details).
- Wheelbirks Ice Cream (Saturday only).
- Probably an even bigger marquee.
- More and better quality ladies toilets!
- More space for camping and cooked breakfasts available on Saturday and Sunday morning.
As we had last year, we will feature 124 local and national real ales (some new breweries added), a cider bar with around 25 different Ciders and Perry’s. Our wine bar will again be in association with Paddy from BIN 21. There will be also be a selection of soft drinks and a fantastic Food Court with the Polish BBQ, Northern Wilds wood fired pizza, a salad bar plus others – see Food page.
Take a look at the video below and see what a great time we have at our festival.
Many thanks to Allendale Brewery for sponsoring our volunteers T shirts again in 2016.
From our home in a former Smelt mill in the North Pennines, we brew an array of international, national and local award winning ales and lagers.
The Festival would like to thank Northumberland Fire & Rescue Service for its help and advice.
