Come and join us for a pint!


After missing out last year, the annual Knaresborough Lions’ Charity Beer Festival will kick back into life at Knaresborough House from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 August 2021. On Saturday afternoon, the event coincides with FEVA’s Party in the Park. With beers like Bad Kitty, Ay Up, Pale Rider, Screech Owl and Strength in Numbers, real ale enthusiasts will find a solution to every taste. Altogether, there will be 24 different ales on offer, says Mike Pyle, President of Knaresborough Lions.


“We will also serve prosecco and other wines, lagers, soft drinks and ciders like Farmhouse Scrumpy, Lilley’s Rhubarb and Skidbrooke Vintage Cyder. There will be a running barbecue operated by Andy from McQueens, with separate vegan and street food on the Friday evening and all day on Saturday. Sunday, as ever, is pot luck day to see what’s left.”


Hours are 5 to 11 pm on Friday; Saturday 12 to 11 pm and Sunday from noon. Entertainment will be provided by Chorus crew, followed by Paul Watson on Friday, Saturday afternoon will be devoted to FEVA’s line-up in the gardens, with Paul Mirfin and Paul Watson playing later. Sunday afternoon visitors will be entertained by a performance from Tewit Youth Band.


“We are grateful to all those who have us set up this event,” added Mike Pyle. “The town feels like it is ready for a party and in conjunction with FEVA we are delighted to bring our beer festival back. And it’s all for charity, too.”
