Our sixth annual Ponteland Beer Festival was a fantastic success attracting over
3,000 attendees and we plan to make it even better next year!
We are now looking forward to 2020!
Ponteland RFC would like to say a huge thank you to all of our sponsors, visitors and the community
of Ponteland and surroundings for such great support to the 2019 Ponteland Beer Festival.
Again running to an extended third day, with the addition of Sunday, there will be over 100 real ales and lagers, and 50 ciders from a selection of local and national brewers to choose from.
There will also be a choice of prosecco, wines and soft drinks.
There will also be 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, Angel Street Food are making your food choice even more exciting. Expect authentic Indian kebabs and wraps, paella pans, nachos, smoked beef brisket, authentic pizzas and proper coffee throughout the festival. Restaurant quality in a box and extremely good value.
Another terrific line-up will perform over the weekend including favourites from last year, The Baghdaddies, The Heavenly Thrillbillies, Duke Street and Livewire and new for Saturday evening, Hip Hop Hooray. There'll also be rugby to watch on Saturday.
On Sunday there will be fun for all the family including a Fun Fair and attractions as well as music from Ponteland Community Band, Ponteland Rock Choir, and the The Pretty Weeds.
The beer festival will be held next to the rugby pitch at Ponteland Leisure Centre
