Dronfield Beer Festival 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Dronfield Beer & Cider Festival is a new event taking place 30th May to 1st June - the weekend previously occupied by the 3 Valleys Festival.


The main event is a CAMRA volunteer organised beer & cider festival at the Pioneer Club, which is less than 10 minutes walk from Dronfield Station and served by buses 14, 15 and 44, featuring around 40 real ales and a dozen ciders & perry along with a guest run bar showcasing craft beer on keg. The Pioneer Club's own bar will also be open for wines, spirits and soft drinks. Food will be available throughout the event and live music, arranged by Saxbob, will feature Friday and Saturday night. Entry to the festival is £3 after 5pm on Friday and all day Saturday; free entry at other times. Drinks will be served into a branded souvenier glass (glass deposit payable on arrival, you can return undamaged glasses for refund when leaving or simply keep the glass).


The CAMRA beer & cider festival is open Thursday 30th May 6pm-10pm, Friday 31st May 12pm-11pm and Saturday 1st June 12pm-11pm.


On the Saturday (1st June) the "One Valley" pub festival fringe will take place offering festivities across the town, independently organised by individual pubs, bars and shops - why not combine a visit to the CAMRA event with a few hours exploring the venues of Dronfield town? Confirmed as taking part are the Dronfield Arms/White Swan/Smiffy's bar/Beer Stop/Wine World near the station, Blue Stoops/Manor House Hotel/Victoria by the Civic Centre along with the Coach & Horses, Jolly Farmer and Hyde Park Inn. Most of these venues are just a short walk from Dronfield railway station, those that aren't are served by the Stagecoach 43 bus (TM Travel 14/15/16/16a also provide a useful link between many venues and the station).


More information on the CAMRA festival at www.dronfield.camra.org.uk. The 3 Valleys Facebook and Twitter accounts will also keep you updated on both the CAMRA festival and the One Valley independent fringe.
