Put it in your diary!
11th to 13th June 2015
Grab your swimming trunks, find your flip flops, and don't forget your rubber ring - the biggest and best beer festival in the north is back! We're returning to Magna in June and bringing with us sand, sea, surf and seriously scrumptious ales.
For our 23rd year - and to coincide with our brand new summer date - the Rotherham Real Ale and Music Festival is taking a trip to the coast. Baa-Watch - A Day at the Seaside will bring together real ales from some of Britain's favourite seaside destinations. There will be around 250 real ales on handpump, as well as ciders, wines and world beers.
Our festival mascot, Baasil, has been taking swimming lessons, and his alter ego 'The Hoof' will guide you through seven different areas of the festival and three live music stages, as well as a few surprises along the way.
There will be more than 40 live music performances during the three day event. Our packed line-up will feature up-and-coming artists, some of the best tribute bands in the business and plenty of feel-good music that's guaranteed to get your toes tapping!
Proceeds from this year's festival will go towards supporting the work of four local charities: Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity, the Rotherham Hospice and the Magna Trust.
