Now an eagerly anticipated annual event amongst local real ale fans, the Institute Beer Festival starts at 4.30pm on the day before the Show and lasts for three days. As well as a mouth-watering choice of 25 carefully selected real ales, the 2023 will feature at least one craft lager. A wonderful atmosphere is enhanced by live music on each of the days courtesy of Anthem, The Coustics and Cartwright Guitar Show. Admission to the Festival is free and we are indebted to Wareing Buildings for kindly sponsoring the souvenir pint pots and to everyone who sponsors a cask (2023 list below).
