It’s time to order a pint at Peterborough’s longest bar! After a two year hiatus, the long awaited return of our city's biggest social event is now here at last.

One of our biggest and best events gets underway on the Embankment on Tuesday August 23 serving up the best brews every day until Saturday August 27.

Organised by our local branch of CAMRA, the popular five day event showcases the best real ale, cider, keykeg beer, wine and gin from the UK, all kept in tip-top condition under giant marquees by their team of cellar experts.

It's an annual event we always look forward to and we’ve missed it!

It’s such a great opportunity to meet up with friends whilst trying some of the 400 draught real ales on offer, listening to live music.

You can’t beat singing along with a pint in your hand soaking up the atmosphere in the live music tent.

There’ll be some amazing performers each day kicking off with Stacey’s Open Mic session on the Tuesday at 7.30pm – a great opportunity for up-and-coming performers to play to a big crowd.

The ever popular Groove Cartell take to the stage midweek, followed by Last Minute Brigade and The Expletives both of which are sure to guarantee the Thursday night is loud and lively!

Friday sees the Palmy Ukelele Band kick things off at 3pm, with 23 Reasons taking the stage at 7.30pm and Revolver closing the night at 9pm.

Saturday has Another Girl Another Planet live at 7.30pm with the Motor City Vipers taking the main slot at 9pm with some soul classics.

There are loads of food stalls for when you get the munchies, as well as games and stalls.

The organisers aim to cater for everyone, so gluten-free, vegan, low-alcohol and alcohol-free options are available across the festival and identified in the festival programme.

Peterborough Beer Festival is family friendly with lunchtime or early evening being the ideal time to get a taste of the easy going, friendly atmosphere suitable for all ages.

You can take a picnic and your dog (on a lead, of course). There are even some fairground rides to enjoy – although possibly not a wise move if you’ve downed a few too many pints beforehand!

Keep an eye out for our ESP Magazine Paparazzi photographers capturing the action and look out for the pictures online.
