Silloth Beer Festival

With just three weeks to go to this years festival we thought we'd let you know that the beer list is now online!

You can view it by clicking here As well as whats on the list there will also be great ales from some local brewers and a selection of cider's. As always we cater for the drivers amongst you with a selection of soft drinks, and there is also lager and wine available for those who'd prefer.

This year there are 16 different acts performing across the weekend and, as with the beers, there is a mix of local talent and bands from further afield. Local bands include Battle of the Bands winners Sneaky Finch, House of Three Hands and Black Wolf Run. Coming from further afield we have a tribute to Queen from the fantastic Mercury, Blondied (need we say more), two sets from the hilarious comedy folk band The Lancashire Hotpots and we're bringing things right up to date on Sunday with two fabulous tribute bands, The Four Fighters and Kazabian. Full details of the line up can be found on the website

Now that the beers are ordered and the bands are ready for Silloth, all that we need now is you! For those of you that haven't already got tickets you can do so in advance in the following ways:
