The 10th Gateshead Beer & Music Festival

Fri 3rd to Sun 5th May 2019

Doors open 12pm each day

Gateshead Beer & Music Festival first started off in 2010 with the emphasis on creating a great local community festival. Moving forward nine years the festival has grown into an event that is loved both locally and nationally, whilst maintaining its community beliefs. In 2016 we were delighted to be named as a Finalist in the Tyne & Wear Lifestyle awards – Best live experience.

The festival organisers pride themselves on striving to improve the festival year on year, this year there are no exceptions with the introduction of the Craft Can Bar, the new and improved Cider bar, the addition of premium lagers and a new food area.

Once again we have a great selection of Ales & Ciders that are sourced countrywide; however, we always ensure that we provide a great springboard for local brewers to showcase their products In addition to the popular Cava bar, we will see the return of our Gin filled Jam Jar Bar and Prosecco cocktails.

As always we have 3 fantastic days of live music performed on two stages….

 From Our Sponsors

Great British Meat Co

Our story began over sixty years ago and as third generation butchers, we’re immensely proud of our meaty heritage. Our family business has been serving the public with the finest meat since 1953, and along the way we’ve earned a reputation for product and service excellence, with accreditation and accolades to match.

We’ve transferred these great core values of honesty, quality and service excellence to Great British Meat Co.

We’re excited to be moving back to the future, and are once again providing meat direct to households through the Great British Meat Co. We know our grandfather would be really proud, so it’s a great way to celebrate our 60th anniversary.
