Now in its 10th year, the hugely popular Big Bournemouth Beer Festival returns to Bournemouth International Centre. There’s something for everyone at this year’s festival with a huge range of traditional real ales complemented by a range of novelty and seasonal beers, plus the ever popular cider, perry and wine bars.

Sup-up Sunday is also back, starting at midday on Sunday. Join us to 'sup-up' what's left. This session is FREE to attend!

Stop by Street Food Corner and team your tipple of choice with some hearty, wholesome food. Pulled pork, pies and delicious flatbreads are just some of the dishes that will feature on the menu across the weekend. You certainly won’t go hungry (or thirsty!).

Entertainment includes live music throughout the weekend;

On Friday nightThe Jimmy Hillbillies, - a seven-piece good time, hoedowning, “Rockabilly Stomp” outfit straight out of Dorset will be providing a heady mix of old time Hillbilly and Country tunes, mashed-up with a driving rockabilly bass and beat; the band feature mandolin, double bass, country guitar, two accordions, a skiffle washboard, didgeridoo, drums and a variety of percussive implements.

 

Saturday afternoon entertainment comes in the form of The Mother Ukers – A ukulele band who have created their own unique sound, which they dub ‘Ukular Fusion’! This trio of dapper gentlemen rework the greatest hits from many musical genres – Punk, Jazz, and Blues to name a few – performed with humour and energy.

Entertainment on Saturday evening will come fromThe Vintage Dogs, who combine their individual background in Rock ‘n’ Roll, Punk, Alternative and Glam Rock, throw in a bit of Classic Rock and kick out a few anthems to boot. You’ll be sure to hear some of the songs you love as well as some you hadn’t realised you’d forgotten!
