The Beer and Bluegrass Festival returns for its 6th successful year on 24/25th July 2020 to Branksome in Poole. This ‘down-home’ festival is set in the secluded grounds of Victoria School with the main stage set within a natural amphitheatre, surrounded by woodland with ‘Claremont’ Victorian convent in the background. 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.
