As there will be no Harbury beer festival this year, the Leamington Beer and Music has been created to fill the void.

The festival was set up to raise funds for The Band Factory, a space for musicians in old town Leamington. As a music focused festival, there are already 15 confirmed bands to be joined by more than 45 real ales and cider. As a first year theme, and borrowing from the Rugby World Cup starting the week after, there will be two categories of beer available.

The first, Home End being from local breweries to the area, the second Away End being from further a field.

Organising committee member, Oliver Hiscoe, states: “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”

Doors open from 4pm on Friday the 11th and Midday on the 12th and 13th.

It costs £5 to enter, including your glass and programme. Tickets are on sale now at People are advised to book them in advance before they sell out.
