Football club ready for fundraising beer festival

The Whitley Bay FC Beer Festival takes place this weekend at the club’s Hillheads headquarters.

The event, held over three days in the Seahorse Club, gets under way on Friday evening from 7pm until 10.30pm and continues on Saturday and Sunday, from midday to 10.30pm on both days.

Twenty-five real ales will be available along with a selection of ciders and perries.

Entry costs £10 and includes three beer tokens as well as an event programme, a commemorative glass and souvenir pen.

The festival is an important social and fundraising event for the club ahead of the new season, which starts in August, and all are welcome.
