Real Ale and Cider Bar

Hi my name Nick and I am the Bar manger at BCBF.

We have already started planning the bar for this year we are looking to have on tap 25 + cask ales and 20+ ciders

We have already made contact with several suppliers about the beers and ciders for the festival. We will update this page as beers and ciders are confirmed.

We plan to open the bar on:

Friday 13 September 2024 from 5pm to 11PM

Saturday 14 September2024 11am to 11pm

Sunday  15 September2024 11am to 5pm

The bar is manned entirely by volunteers during the opening hours.

However, we will be on site from 9 September to build the bar and the cellar,

and again on site from 16 September to 19 September to pack away the bar

So there are lots of opportunity to get involved and help out. We are a friendly team and would welcome anyone (regardless of experience as training will be provided). If you like to discuss this opportunity further, please contact me on
