Steam & Beer

Steam & Beer 2023 

 

Steam & Beer will be held on last weekend in June (24/25th). Live music from midday until 10pm on the Saturday and family fun with Captain Jack Sparrow on Sunday.

There will be a barbecue serving locally sourced hot dogs and burgers both days (cash only).

The ales and ciders will be chilled using professional chillers.

For the first time ever, you are able to buy your tickets online – there are 250 tickets for each day available for purchase online but you will also be able to buy them on the day at the ticket office – this is to reduce the queue on the day. Click on the Buy Now button to be taken to the TicketSource page. Please note: there will be a booking fee applied to these ticket sales by TicketSource.
