Beer and Bluegrass Festival 2018

Event Date: Fri 27 & Sat 28 July 2018

Now in its fourth successful year, the Beer and Bluegrass Festival in Poole is attracting top quality acts from across the world.

The Festival is set in the secluded grounds of Victoria School with a main stage within a natural amphitheatre, a woodland backdrop and the stunning ‘Claremont’ a Victorian former convent in the foreground.

The festival is located on the South Coast of England between the towns of Poole and Bournemouth and only minutes away from the finest beaches in the UK and with easy transportation links.

Come and visit Beer and Bluegrass, one of the best small Festivals in the UK. Tickets are on sale now.

The music ranges from traditional Bluegrass to Americana and beyond. One of the most popular events if the closing night ‘Jams’ where many of the acts join together on stage and join together ‘Bluegrass Style’ singing around a single microphone to close each evening. The results are breath-taking and totally unique, adding a very special atmosphere to the Festival.

Real Ales & Cider
The very best of Beers and Ciders from top craft brewers, locally and further afield are on offer.

The festival food is hugely popular. Friday nights with top quality burgers and sausages from Keating’s the well-known local Wimborne butchers. Then on Saturdays with a double Hog Roast from Jackie and Anthony, farmers from Somerset. If meat is not your thing then dip in to Trisha’s Veggie Chilli and Baked Potatoes or mix and match the choice is yours!
