Fifth year for Cheshire Beer Festival

Cheshire Beer Festival

Festival switch from November to March

Cheshire Beer Festival returns to Chester Racecourse for a fifth time on 22-23 March, following a 16-month break that's seen it move from a November slot in the calendar to March.

For the first time the festival will be open all day on Friday and Saturday, so having paid for admission visitors will be free to stay for the entire day.

The upper floor of the County Stand will be in use with plenty of seating, while the lower floor will be the focus of most of the activity.

The Champion Beer of Cheshire competition will take place on Friday, 22 March, before the opening session of the festival and there will be more than 80 real ales on offer, with around 40 from Cheshire and the remainder from all parts of Britain. There will also be over 20 ciders and perries featured.

Hot and cold food will available throughout the festival and there will live entertainment and pub games. There is plenty of free parking right by the entrance and the venue is accessible for the less able. Tickets are available online and from selected local pubs.
