Wolverhampton CAMRA Beer Festival @ Newhampton Arts Centre Wolverhampton
Jul 11 @ 12:00 pm – Jul 13 @ 10:00 pm

Event Description

Festival in July this year

Wolverhampton BF was being organised for 6th – 8th June. Unfortunately, there is a clash with Netherlands v England UEFA Nations League Semi-Final on Thursday 6th June, the intended first evening of the Wolverhampton Beer Festival.

After investigating the cost of showing the match at the BF venue (Sky £750), and considering the likely loss of revenue if not shown, the BF Meeting decided to postpone the BF until the only other available venue dates, Thursday 11 – Sat 13 July.

Getting here

The Newhampton Arts Centre is well served by National Express (West Midlands) No 6 bus from Wolverhampton Bus Station and is a 20 minute walk across the city centre from the railway, bus and Metro stations.

75+ real ales & a range of ciders/perries & foreign bottled beer.
