The Continental's 18th Beer Festival on Thursday 5th - Sunday 8th October 2017
For the most up-to-date information about this event, please go here: The Continental Beer Festival Guide
As the “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” begins, Preston pub and arts venue The Continental will be waving goodbye to the summer with the return of their most popular event, not to mention one of the most popular events on Preston’s social calendar: The Continental’s Beer & Cider Festival, running from Thursday 5th October to Sunday 8th October.
Anyone who’s been to one of these shindigs before (and that’s a lot of you!) will know the drill. Two beer halls house over 200 cask ales and ciders from across the UK and beyond. There’s a speciality keg beer bar, there’s also an increased size gin bar, as that proved to be so popular at our May event. There’s barbecue food and veggie delicacies, lovingly served up by our friends at The Ferret Smokehouse. To cap it all off there’s another huge outdoor marquee hosting a diverse roster of live music acts and top-flight vinyl DJs to keep you moving over the weekend.
The Conti’s riverside location, allied to the best beer garden in town, creates an outdoor atmosphere like no other. Here’s your chance to enjoy those hazy early-autumnal evenings with friends old and new.
Before you turn into a pumpkin.
