Beer & Music Festival Update

This popular event returns this weekend to once again tickle the taste buds of the discerning ale drinker with approximately 150 beers (mostly real ales) from all over the country to choose from. Cider and wine drinkers will also be able to have their thirst quenched with a wonderful selection of fine wines and ciders.

New for 2017 we will also have a selection of artisan gin available at Oxenhope and a ‘Cocktail & Gin Shack’ available at Ingrow.

Add in Music (Friday – Sunday) in the Exhibition Hall at Oxenhope and in the marquee at Ingrow and the stage is set for another excellent Keighley & Worth Valley Railway Beer and Music Festival.

The Festival opens on Thursday at 12.30 with a diesel multiple train service between Keighley, first train at 12.25,  & Oxenhope, first train at 13.00. Steam and mainline diesel services operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
