Festival parking 

If anyone is planning on bringing a car this weekend then we’ve got use of the Dryden centre car park which is a 5 minute walk to the venue (NE9 5UR). 

The car park will be open from 11:30 to 23:30 Saturday and 11:30 to 23:00 on Sunday. The car park will be closed on Monday, so any cars left overnight will be locked in. 

Blue Badge holders can park in the Gateshead Fell cricket club car park (Located next door to the Rugby club) – Parking spaces are limited in numbers. 

We would however recommend if possible leaving the car at home and using the great local transport links to our club.

Prestigious awards ceremony chooses local beer festival as host

The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) has chosen the Gateshead Beer and Music Festival on 3rd-5th May 2019 as the host for their annual North East Independent Beer Awards.

The festival is celebrating its 10th birthday this year and will provide the venue for the judges to decide on the best beers and ales from the region. The North East champions in each category will join the 7 other regional champions from the UK in moving forward to the national awards, which are held at BeerX, the UK’s largest independent craft brewing trade show.

The awards represent the very best beer from the UK’s independent brewers and are judged by fellow brewers and industry experts, making these awards the “Brewers’ Choice” awards in the UK.

Mark Anderson, Managing Director of Maxim Brewery and SIBA regional trustee , said:

“The North East regional beer competition and awards will showcase the best beers and breweries from Sheffield to Berwick on Tweed. Some 180 real ales and 100’s of bottled and canned beers of varying styles are entered into the competition and we are pleased that these will then be available for consumption at the Gateshead Beer and Music Festival weekend.’’
