We are now looking forward to 2018!
Ponteland Beer Festival 2018: Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd April
Ponteland RFC would like to say a huge thank you to all of our sponsors and the community of Ponteland and surroundings for such great support in advance of the 2017 Ponteland Beer Festival.
Running to an extended third day, with the addition of Sunday, there was over 100 real ales and lagers, and 40 ciders to choose from as well as prosecco, wine and soft drinks; a terrific range of different drinks were on offer catering for all tastes. Our Prosecco and wine bar added a little sparkle to occasion, selling quality wines and bubbly with Fentimans providing the soft drinks and mixers.
The admission price included a commemorative glass, programme and 3 drinks tokens. Additional drinks tokens were available at 3 for £5.
The music began with the acclaimed brass band the Dunston Silver Band. Following a fantastic debut in 2016, Northstar returned to perform on Friday evening. On Saturday, music was provided by Ponteland Community Wind Band at Lunchtime, Ponteland RFC ended their season with a home game against Seaton Carew then two terrific bands entertained guests from late Saturday afternoon in the form of Holy Moly and the Crackers followed by The Richard Kain Band. On Sunday, Ponteland hosted a Northumberland County Rugby Game, and we were entertained by Folk Band, Alistair Anderson and Northlands.
The beer festival will be held next to the rugby pitch at Ponteland Leisure Centre
