ARCHIVE 2010 FESTIVAL

For current beer festival click here: http://www.newcontinental.net/whats-on/8th-continental-beer-festival

 

Preston’s biggest and most exciting beer festival is set to return to The Continental on Thursday 13th May, running through to Sunday 16th May.

Previous festivals have seen thousands of happy drinkers travel from all over the region to enjoy four days of quality ales, great food and a feast of live music from a host of established acts.

It’s looking as though this festival will outshine even past glories, with over a hundred different varieties of real ales, ciders and perrys, European bottled beers, and a number of specialist food stalls.

Click here for the full beer list!

The festival also features the most solid band line up yet - 21 acts in total - who will be performing in a specially erected marquee in the venue’s spacious beer garden.

It all kicks off at 6pm on Thursday and runs through until 11pm on Sunday.

And entry is free! Astounding!
