Burbage Beer Festival celebrates two decades

Written by Peter Davison on .

Burbage Beer Festival reaches the milestone of its 20th anniversary this September, with 40 guest beers and ciders offered to thirsty punters over two nights.

The festival is held on the Red Lion Playing field, the home of the Burbage and Easton Royal Sports Club, which is situated at the bottom of East Sands, from 6.30pm until 11pm on Friday and Saturday, September 9 and 10.

Live music comes courtesy of Kennet Valley Brass and Humdinger on Friday, and a kids’ disco followed by Echo on Saturday.

A weekend pass costs £8, which includes a souvenir half-pint beer glass. Tokens can be exchanged for guest beers and ales on both Friday and Saturday.

The event is organised by Burbage and Easton Royal Cricket Club, and proceeds go towards supporting sport in the village.
