Beer, Cider & Gin

We will have 46 beers & 17 ciders chosen with care and attention by the team (special mention to Simon Whatmuff) and kept at perfect temperature by the beer cooling system supplied by our main sponsor, Bollington Brewery.

Plus this year, for the first time, there is a gin bar. This was a bit of a last minute decision so the exact range is being put together but it’s going to be exciting with a full range of tonics.

Served to you by our happy band of volunteers wearing the distinctive cyan t-shirts. Please ask them for a taster if you’re unsure which beer, cider or gin is for you. The Arts Centre bar is also open selling a range of other drinks including soft drinks and snacks.

The beer, cider & gin bars operate on a token system bought from the front desk for £1.60 per token. One token for a half pint (£1.60), two tokens for a pint (£3.20), two tokens for a gin (£3.20) and one for a tonic (£1.20). The Arts Centre bar is a cash bar.

Thank you in advance to all our sponsors for their patronage in making this festival possible.

Cheers, Rob (bar manager)
