Arboretum Beer Festival Returns with Beer, Street Food, and Live Music Galore

3 August 22 words: LeftLion

Just when you thought you had that rare August weekend off the sauce, along comes DHP Family’s Arboretum Beer Festival to tempt you out with top class ale, craft beer, live music, street food and more besides…

Nottingham’s historic Arboretum Park is hosting a two-day festival featuring some of the best craft beers, ales and ciders from leading local and national breweries along with a full line up of live music and DJs on August 26-27.

Expanding the festival after a successful inaugural event last year, the event will feature the best of the local breweries including Castle Rock, Neon Raptor, Bang The Elephant, Mardy Bum, Totally Brewed and Navigation, with national breweries Thornbridge, Vocation, Brew York, Gweilo and many more completing the line up.

Hosted by top local promoters DHP Family, Arboretum Beer Festival will see 20 breweries showcasing their beers along with street food stalls, and live music from the historic bandstand throughout the event.

Artists performing on the day include Deep Down Brass, a six-piece brass and drums group with a vast repertoire, The Outriders, a trio who never fail to get everyone up on their feet, followed by tribute act AKA Noel Gallagher, Dead Mans Uke and professional Mexican and Latino musicians Mariachi Tequila the next day. Rounding off the music entertainment will be an Acoustic Rooms takeover featuring unplugged performances and DJ sets from local Nottingham favourites, plus quizzes and bingo to add to the fun.

Local street food comes from Johnny Pusztai aka The Snobby Butcher - the ham- curing, bacon-smoking, sausage-making force of nature; authentic wood-fired pizzas with every flavour imaginable from The Pizza Box; Squeaky Beaver Poutine, offering variations on the fries, cheese curds and gravy combo plus a barbecue from Buffalo Trace.

Patrick Somers, Senior Promotions Manager & Chief Beer-Taster for DHP Family, said: “We’re thrilled to be back in the amazing surroundings of Nottingham Arboretum this summer, combining our love of events with our love of great beer for the second instalment of our annual Arboretum Beer Festival. The team at DHP look forward to welcoming the good folks of Nottingham and those from further afield to the sunny Arb’ this August Bank Holiday.”

Earlybird tickets are £10 per day, or it’s £15 for the weekend including a commemorative Arboretum Beer Festival cup. General admission tickets are £12.50 Friday and £15 Saturday.

The festival opens at 4pm on Friday and 12pm on Saturday with live music throughout both days. All ages welcome, but any under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
