With only 8 days to go before the 5th Leeds international Beer Festival gets underway here are a few things you can do to prepare for the North’s biggest beer festival!!:
Buy a ticket!! Yes it’s an obvious one but we turned away hundreds of people at last year’s fest who waited to the last minute to buy a ticket on the door. We’re expecting most of the sessions to sell out so get your hands on a ticket now. As well buying online and through the city centre box office you can buy tickets at Tapped Leeds, Jumbo Records, Northern Monk Refectory, Bundobust, Kirkstall Bridge, North Bar and Cross Keys.
Buy online tickets before Thursday 01.09.16 if you can! After this point it will be too late to send tickets out in the post. Otherwise you will have to collect your tickets on the door – which takes slightly longer in the queue (and slightly less time for drinking beer).
Get your tokens in advance! Yes that’s right, you can now get £5 tokens in advance of the festival – saving even more time when you arrive on site and ensuring you’re one of the first to get to the bar of your choice!! Tokens only available at the city centre box office in Leeds Town Hall – payment is cash only.
Get in the mood!! Following the success of our special pre-events at last year’s fest we’ve put together an amazing line up of events again featuring amazing breweries in our favourite Leeds venues. Full details will be online in the next day or so but the first event is a cracker: get yourselves down to Kirkstall Bridge next Saturday 3 Sept from noon and try amazing beer courtesy of our New Zealnad friends and when the hunger sets in – BBQ champion Andy Annat will be cooking up a smokey, saucy storm all day on huge grill.
Get plenty of rest…..this year’s fest is going to be MASSIVE!!!
