Whitby & District Lion’s 8th Charity Beer Festival aims to raise money for various local charities and good causes that Whitby Lions support, as well as supporting Whitby Lions Disability Scooter Programme and the club’s efforts to raise awareness of diabetes.
This year’s event will again be held at the Whitby Mission & Seafarers Centre, Haggersgate, for the forth year running, after a very successful year in 2015 in which we raised £4K for local charities. The festival is open from Thursday 27th July until Sunday 30th July, celebrating some of the finest local and regional handcrafted real ales that are produced by a range of widely credited Micro Breweries.
The festival boasts more than 30 real ales and ciders, all available to sample (in ½ pint measures), giving you the perfect opportunity to experience and appreciate the wonderful variety of styles and flavours on offer. In addition, there will also be a variety of perrys to sample, traditionally brewed using only the best quality fruits.
Fresh, locally produced food will be available throughout the festival period and may provide a complimentary addition to your choice of beverage.
The festival is open for all to enjoy and in the past has attracted an excellent variety of visitors including families, holiday makers and real ale enthusiasts! Everyone is warmly welcomed to the event, though we do aim to encourage a responsible and relaxed atmosphere for all to enjoy.
On behalf of Whitby & District Lions, we thank you for your past and continued support of this local charity event and look forward whole heartedly to seeing you there!
£5.00 entry fee includes: a commemorative festival glass tankard (to keep), festival programme (complete with a real ale and cider guide) and 1 beer token.
