Preston’s Biggest and Best Beer Festival is BACK!!!

If you've been before, you know the drill... If not, here's what we're about...

The Continental’s Beer Festivals have become something of a Preston institution, seeing thousands of happy drinkers come through our doors. The Continental is a Mecca for real ale drinkers all over the North West and beyond. We continue the larger version of our beer festival with a 9 x 21 metre marquee housing our second beer hall giving us the ability to offer over 200 ales, ciders, craft beers, perrys and specialist kegs. The Smokehouse Chefs from The Ferret serving up a BBQ Bonanza in their own unique smokehouse style, and live music and DJs across the long weekend to keep you moving.


In order for us to promote a safe and comfortable environment we’re capping number of guests in the festival grounds. A minimal advance tickets price is in place and is priced as follows:

Thurs - £3
Fri - £4
Sat - £4
Sun - FREE

A big favourite last time was the money saving WEEKEND TICKET, priced at £8. Saving £3 per person if you're planning on coming each day.

The return of the specialist keg and beer bar will see a top of the taps rundown of excellent emerging craft keg brewers. The beer hall has new improved seating areas for you to sit in and soak up the atmosphere.

All this thirsty work will give you an appetite, so the Smokehouse Chefs from The Ferret will be serving up a BBQ Bonanza in its unique smokehouse style. Team Ferret have been working hard in creating more Vegan & Vegetarian options for your tastebuds this time out.

Along with the amazing ale and food on offer, the live music and DJ roster in the outdoor marquee is an ever-popular feature of the festival...
Our Beer Fests are almost as well known for their live music line-ups as the great selections of ales - past events have seen performances from such cult acts as Mary Epworth and the Jubilee Band, Cabbage, Hyperjax, Jeremiah Ferrari, The Templebys, Blues Harvest, The Lovely Eggs, Zamaica, Dan Haywood’s New Hawks, Stan’s Magic Foot, Brassic, Former Bullies, Hyperjax, Los Pecadores, Ivan Campo, Serious Sam Barrett, Bilge Pump, Sweet Deals On Surgery and The Black and Reds in our spacious garden marquee.



Thursday 11 May 5pm – 12am – Tickets £3
Friday 12th May 12pm - 12.30am - Tickets £4
Saturday 13th May 12pm – 12.30am – Tickets £4
