Whilst we always try to have a glass half full approach we are devastated to announce that we have had to postpone the Blackburn Beer Festival.
We would like to thank all our sponsors for their support through these uncertain times and we will continue to make plans alongside Blackburn Youth Zone to come back bigger and better than ever with a new date.
For those of you who would like to host your own isolated beer festival our brewery sponsor, Bowland Brewery, are offering casks and crates of beer to see you through. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to order.
Our thoughts go out to our friends and family and we hope to announce our new dates soon.
What you’ll find at Blackburn Beer and Gin Festival:
The Blackburn Beer Festival marks its sixth year with an outstanding menu of the best brewers and producers can muster at Blackburn Rugby Club.
Blackburn Beer Festival has over 1,000 people expected to visit the festival over the three days, sample over 60 real ales from across the North West and beyond, plus an eclectic selection of ciders and lagers. We also have live music entertainment each evening and rugby matches are being held over Saturday and Sunday.
We would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the Blackburn Beer Festival over the years – breweries, suppliers, local companies, sponsors, beer festival committee and the public for making it such a resounding success.
“Bowland Brewery is delighted to be able to support the beer festival with a range of our excellent local brewed beers that will generate vital funds for the Youth Zone, as a local brewery will are committed to work with our local community.”
Warren Bennett, James Places
“We are proud to have been a headline sponsor of the Beer Festival since its inception and it goes from strength to strength with this year promising to be the best yet. Most importantly, the Festival raises much needed funds for Blackburn Youth Zone, a fantastic charity benefiting the young people of our area – I would urge you to support it.”
Ian Liddle, Farleys
‘’We are delighted to again be headline sponsors for this fantastic event; a great social occasion for those attending, but more importantly an opportunity to contribute to a charity which provides so much support and opportunity to so many young people in Blackburn. The Blackburn Youth Zone goes from strength to strength and events such as this are vital to its continued success. ‘’
