The casks will soon be empty as the fantastic 36th Peterboorugh Beer Festival draws to a close tonight (Saturday August 24) and what a belter it’s been!

So folks, pint glasses at the ready it’s time for your final fling at the Embankment and there’s no let up ’til 11pm.


The biggest bar in the Boro is open from 12 noon til 3pm with entry jut £1 and then from 3pm ’til gates close at 11pm with admission a  fiver so get ready to sup up for the big send off.

From midday til 5pm it’s the Tipplefair selling a huge range of pub related memorabilia and hosted by Steve Williams from CAMRA. Just head for the hospitality tent once you’re through the gates and see what gems you can find!


First up it’s popular local guys Brotherhoods Roundabout featuring members of several well respected local bands performing tunes at the progressive end of the rock spectrum, songs that many other bands simply don’t attempt, whilst still aiming for a little bit of radio friendliness so you know there will always be some tunes you recognise.

They’re expected on stage from 7.00pm to 8.00pm.

Then to round things off in style it’s Think Floyd, dubbed ‘the defintive Pink Floyd experience’ and they’ll take to the stage at 8.30pm.

To find out more visit and keep up with the chat from the bar on Twitter @BoroBeerFest.

Tell us what’s made the Beer Festival the best for you this year @espmagazine.

Look out for our Paparazzi pictures in the new issue of ESP out on Thursday August 29 and more pictures in our online Paparazzi right here on very soon!

Everybody smile and say CHEERS!
