Our seventh annual Ponteland Beer Festival is building up to be our biggest and best yet.
With well over 3,500 attendees last year and we have some great plans to make it the most memorable weekend in your social calendar.
We will be regularly updating the site and social media over the coming weeks, so please keep your eyes peeled. Alternatively, we do have an email update which you can sign up for here.
ONLINE TICKET PRICES* - ON SALE HERE FROM 31ST JANUARY
Friday 24th April
Saturday 25th April
Sunday 26th April
£2.50 or FREE (when ordered with Friday or Saturday tickets)
*plus a small booking fee.
Offline tickets will also be available from Ponteland Leisure Centre reception, subject to availability, from 24th March.
Further Drink tokens will be available at the event with 3 for £5, as in previous years.
Numbers are again limited for each day so we would urge that you purchase your tickets well in advance to make sure you don't miss out as it is very unlikely that tickets will be for sale on the lead up to the weekend.
Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you in April.
Again running to an extended third day, with the addition of Family Sunday, there will be over 150 real ales, lagers and ciders from a selection of local and national brewers to choose from.
There will also be our very popular Prosecco and Wine Bar, together with Soft Drinks on sale and a Gin Bar offering a selection of artisan gins with Fentimans providing the soft drinks and mixers.
While there's no doubt that your thirst will be well taken care of, you'll be able to satisfy your hunger too.
This year, we have a terrific choice of Street Foods on sale supplied by Angel Street Food and Toro.
Restaurant quality in a box and extremely good value.
Another terrific line-up will perform over the weekend including new performers Folk Soul Brothers, Union Street, Maverick Rejects, Redwings and Bay 6. There will be a Rugby Tournament on Saturday afternoon on the adjacent pitch.
On Sunday there will be fun for all the family including a Fun Fair and Junior Rugby Festival as well as music from Ponteland Community Band, Ponteland Rock Choir, and the Hound Cats.
The beer festival will be held next to the rugby pitch at Ponteland Leisure Centre
