Sutton Beer Festival

This year's Sutton Beer Festival coincides with St Patrick's Day. What better way to celebrate than drinking top quality ales whilst watching Six Nations Rugby?

Woodhouse Grange Cricket Club has once again collaborated with the Sutton-upon-Derwent Village Hall Committee to organise this excellent event.

Now in its sixth year, the Sutton Beer Festival has become a fixture in the calendar at Sutton-upon-Derwent, the village most local to Woodhouse Grange on the eastern outskirts of York. 

The Festival continues to grow in popularity, its range of entertainment and refreshments in a friendly atmosphere throughout the day appealing to beer connoisseurs, rugby fans, families and local residents alike.

Live coverage of all three Six Nations Rugby matches - the final round of fixtures in the 2018 tournament - will be shown on the big screen in the Village Hall.

Expect a wide range of cask beers to be on offer - including some from award winning local brewers. Look out for further updates once we have finalised the list.

A selection of lager, cider, gin and wine will also be available from the bar, and some hot food will also be on offer. 

The event gets underway as early as 12:30pm, with the Italy vs Scotland match kicking off immediately. 

A mid-afternoon surge is anticipated as England take on Ireland at Twickenham from 2:45pm, with Wales vs France following at 5:00pm.

The Sutton Beer Festival traditionally includes musical entertainment in the evening, and we hope to showcase this once again. Updates will be posted once arrangements are in place.
