11th Beer & Cider Festival


The Strutt Centre
Derby Rd
DE56 1UU
11th Beer & Cider Festival at Belper Rugby Club


Finally after two years of cancelled festivals we are hopefully back on track with the 11th Amber Valley Beer & Cider Festival to be held from 30th June to 2nd July this year at the Belper Rugby Club, Derby Rd, Belper, Derbyshire DE56 1UU.

The festival has moved across the road from Strutt’s School to Strutt’s Field, previously the school’s playing field, now occupied by the Belper Rugby Club, who have very kindly allowed us to use the field and club house for our festival.

The main festival will take place in a large marquee, complete with stage and dance floor. Around 90 beers, ciders & perry will be set up in the marquee, also craft beers, soft drinks, snacks etc. There will be a wide selection of beers of all types & styles from breweries near and far served at cellar temperature thanks to our excellent cooling system. The Club House bar will also be open serving the full range of drinks.

On Thursday there will be no music in the marquee and CAMRA members are admitted free on showing a current membership card. Open from noon to 11pm.

Friday is open from 12 noon to 5.30pm for the afternoon. Friday evening opens at 5.30pm to 11pm with entertainment from Kelly’s Heroes followed by the Modskas. Tickets will be available for the evening sessions, and it is strongly advised that you buy tickets early to ensure admission, as numbers are limited. Tickets available at Ents24 Modskas 1st July. CAMRA members with evening tickets get a concession on admission in the form of a £3 beer token on showing their ticket and current CAMRA card.

Saturday is open from 12 noon to 5.30pm for the afternoon. Saturday evening opens at 5.30pm to 11pm with entertainment from a Northern Soul & Motown Disco followed by the ever popular Rollin’ Stoned tribute to the Rolling Stones. Again it is advisable to book tickets early to ensure admission. Tickets available at Ents24 Rollin’ Stoned 2nd July. CAMRA members with evening tickets get a concession on admission in the form of a £5 beer token on showing their ticket and current CAMRA card.

There will be a range of meals and snacks available from the Club House and various stalls and vans on site including vegetarian, gluten free and vegan.

There is on-site parking for blue badge holders and staff only, but plenty of free parking is available locally.
