Not only that, but our event ends a weekend of food, drink and song in the town, with the First Beverley Gentle Festival at Toll Gavel Church and the Beverley Real Ale and Cider Festival at St Mary’s Church also taking place.  Add to that our town’s renowned historic buildings, retail opportunities and local hospitality (dozens of pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from!), Friday 4th to Sunday 6th October 2019 is shaping up to be an amazing weekend.

We look forward to seeing you!
