Beer and Bluegrass Festival returns to Poole

The Beer and Bluegrass Festival returns for its 6th successful year on 24/25th July 2020 to Branksome in Poole.

The line-up includes world-famous Daoiri Farrell from Ireland, the Fierce Flowers from Paris, Todd Day Wait from Missouri, Porchlight Smokers, Jim Ghedi and Toby Hay and Pearl Fish from with many other artistes, many of which will join together on stage, singing and playing ‘Bluegrass Style’ around a single microphone to close each evening.

And to quench your thirst (if the sun appears and hey, it’s July) there’s an accompanying Real Ale and Cider Festival, with handpicked selection of 75  Real Ales and Ciders from the top craft brewers across the British Isles, with plenty of food on offer too. Weekend tickets are £25 – Head over to the website for tickets and more information.
