Whitby Beer Festival



This year’s Whitby Beer Festival held in aid of Whitby & District Lion’s Club is being held from Thursday 26th July until Sunday 29th July 2018. The festival has over 30 real beers and ciders to sample, which means none of this mass-produced beer here, only authentic, hand crafted, regionally produced Real Ales.  


All money raised from the festival helps to support the many local Whitby charities which Whitby Lion’s donate to each year, we also give vital funds to the many personal good causes within the local area which in particularly find it hard to access and raise the funding required. As a club, we also run our Disability Scooter Programme which hires out mobility scooters (free of charge) to anyone who has difficulty getting out and about. We also have an ongoing effort to raise awareness of diabetes through a number of different events throughout the year.



This year’s beer festival will be the club’s 9th and again will be held at the Whitby Mission & Seafarers Centre, Haggersgate, after a very successful year in 2017 in which we raised £5K for local charities.


The festival boasts more than 30 real ales and ciders, all available to sample (in ½ pint measures), giving you the perfect opportunity to experience and appreciate the wonderful variety of styles and flavours on offer.  


Fresh, locally produced food will be available throughout the festival period and may provide a complimentary addition to your choice of beverage.


The festival is open for all to enjoy and in the past has attracted an excellent variety of visitors including families, holiday makers and real ale enthusiasts! Everyone is warmly welcomed to the event, though we do aim to encourage a responsible and relaxed atmosphere for all to enjoy.  


On behalf of Whitby & District Lions, we thank you for your past and continued support of this local charity event and look forward whole heartedly to seeing you there!
