Wellingborough Waendel Beer Festival 2019

Forty beers will be on offer at a Wellingborough ale festival – one for every year of the Waendel Walk.

The international walking festival celebrates its 40th anniversary next week and the Wellingborough Waendel Beer Festival is hoping for a party atmosphere.

Beers from about a dozen breweries will be on offer, many of them local, with seven ciders and perries. Wines and soft drinks will also be on sale.

Wellingborough Scouts will be catering and there will be a special ‘ruby burger’. There will also be a mystery beer where drinkers have to guess what it is with a free pint for anyone who gets it right.

The beer festival runs from 4pm to midnight on Thursday, May 9, and from noon to midnight on Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11.

There will be entertainment from Blud Group, a ukulele band from Barton Seagrave, from 8pm on Thursday and from Toadie/Snog from 8pm on Friday.

On Saturday The Skalanders will entertain crowds between 3pm and 6pm with Shannondore from 8pm.

Entrance costs £5 per day which includes a free pint plus a souvenir beer glass and full colour programme. A two or three day ticket costs £8 and includes two free pints, a souvenir beer glass and full colour programme. Only one glass will be issued per ticket sold.
