The 10th Gateshead Beer & Music Festival

Friday 3rd May to Sunday 5th May

The Gateshead Beer Festival is an event organised by Gateshead Rugby Club and hosted over 3 days at their ground in the Low Fell in Gateshead.

Whilst we reach out to many far afield we are very much about building a festival that brings together the local communities. We also support local businesses by sourcing local produce, as well as involving local charities.

 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.
