Wednesday 17th to Saturday 20th October 2018 at the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham.
Beer and Cider Festival Announces New Venue.
Yes, you read that right, our beer festival is again this year mostly outside. It is at the Motorpoint Arena, but this is the Arena as you will have never seen it before. It is true that some of the bars will be on the ice (covered and insulated!), but this area leads directly to the outside Backstage beer Garden, where one of two stages will be located.
There are in fact two large outdoor areas, the Backstage Beer Garden, with brewery bars, food and other stalls and live music, and the Bolero Square village which also offers bars, stalls and live music! Both with areas where you are free to smoke or vape if you so wish.
There should be plenty of seating, both inside and outdoor, but this does not necessarily include the stadium seats themselves, which, although you are free to use them if you wish, are not ideal for beer festivals and proper tables and chairs will be available.
We also have a Cider Barn, just off the ice, in another area you will not have seen before. This will offer our usual large selection of ciders and perries plus seating.
