BEER and music is many people’s idea of heaven, and the first ever Leamington’s Beer and Music Festival will be providing just that.
The festival is being held to raise funds for the Band Factory in Old Town – a former underwear factory which has been converted into a volunteer-run rehearsal space and practice rooms for local musicians.
Between Friday September 11 and Sunday September 13 there will be a number of bands at the Althorpe Street factory, including Royal Spa Brass and Sambassadors of Groove.
There will also be music workshops for those looking to pick up a new instrument.
Around 45 real ales and ciders will be available, along with a number of different wines and soft drinks.
With the festival being hosted around a ‘Rugby World Cup’ theme, there will be two categories of beer available – a ‘Home End’ with a selection of beers from local breweries, and an ‘Away End’ for those from further afield.
There will also be gourmet toasties on offer from The Jabberwocky food van.
Organiser and music lover Oliver Hiscoe said: “We aimed to create the perfect beer festival that families could join, whilst keeping the cause a central part of the festival by providing great music throughout. It’s going to be a really great weekend, so we hope to see you there.”
Tickets cost £5 including a free glass and programme.
