Southport Beer Festival 2012

The 13th Sandgrounder Beer Festival has now been confirmed:
  • Thu 25 - Sat 27 October.
  • St John's Ambulance Hall, Wright Street, Southport (very close to Southport railway station).
This is a month later than usual. The Southport Beer Festival was held in the Arts Centre for the first ten years, until the council closed the building down for major rebuilding.  The Scarisbrick Hotel on Lord Street stepped in and offered us a venue, but it was subsequently taken over by a national hotel chain. The new owners honoured the existing booking, but after that we had to look for somewhere else.

Why not put these dates in your diary now?


  1. Am looking forward to it. I didn't think the Scarisbrick was the best venue, but by going there, the branch was able to keep the festival going for two years. The new venue is nice and close to the railway station!

  2. I think this will be a better venue than the Scarisbrick. I suggested it a year or two ago, but the local branch seemed particularly unwilling to consider it. I've no idea why.
