Tynedale Beer & Cider Festival is one of the North East’s biggest beer and cider festivals, and probably the best! An annual event, it takes place at Tynedale Park in Corbridge, the home of Tynedale Rugby Football Club. Over three days in June we bring you the best beers and ciders that the region and the UK have to offer, along with great wine, food and live music.
The festival is a joint venture between Tynedale Lions Club and Tynedale Rugby Football Club. Its purpose is to raise money for good causes. The event is organised by a committee representing both clubs. The organising team and helpers are all volunteers who give their time and effort free of charge to ensure the festival is a success.
The festival started in a modest way back in 2002. Since then it has gone from strength to strength, growing in size and popularity and raising over £450,000 for many local and national charities.
Although not an official CAMRA beer festival we do receive a lot of help and advice from members of the local branch, to whom we are very grateful.
