The much-anticipated Wollaton CC Beer Festival will take place over the late May Bank Holiday weekend, from Thursday 23rd to Sunday 26th May. Now in its 11th year, the festival, run in partnership with Nottingham Brewery, brings together real ale and quality cricket at one of the most iconic and picturesque grounds in Nottingham. 

As well as showcasing quality cricket through a range of fixtures for all ages and abilities, the family-friendly weekend will offer nightly BBQs and a live music event. And, of course, there’s the chance to sample a great selection of real ales, ciders, perries and gins from independent producers.  Everyone is welcome, so save the date!
