It may not be the most famous event of its kind but the Big Bournemouth Beer Festival still sees thousands through its doors across a beer-guzzling weekend in April.
- When? TBC April 2018
- Where? BIC Purbeck Hall, Bournemouth
- Price: £7.50 – £8.00
There's no time to waste; it's beer o'clock for a whole weekend this autumn at the Big Bournemouth Beer Festival where locals and groups of friends from across the country turn out to enjoy a boozy weekend in this coastal town.
Running for several years, this popular beer festival has established itself on Bournemouth's annual events calendar. The BIC usually hosts the event with ticketed sessions on the Friday and Saturday, before hosting a non-ticketed Sunday session.
For those who attend the ticketed sessions, a line-up of live music is usually present to help create a vibrant setting and previous years have also seen the ticket include a freebie such a souvenir glass. And as always at a beer fest, you can expect a selection of traditional real ales, a variety of beers and other extras such as wine and cider bars across the whole weekend.
Oh, and there will be plenty of tasty pub grub too - best enjoyed at the end of the night of course - for those who acknowledge it's about time they got some food and went home.
- Get there: The BIC Centre is only a half hour walk from the train station.
- Stay: Find a hotel right by the beach to be close to the event venue and within walking distance to the pier.
