Come along and join us in our picturesque gardens for the Blakesley Hall Ale and Cider Festival. 

Bring your friends and spend the day sampling a variety of Beers, Ales & Ciders from a host of the best Birmingham brewers. There will also be live music to enjoy as you sup and food on site should you get a little peckish. If you’d like to know your Rusted Wheel from your Hockley Gold, or your New Mechanic from your Columbus Mosaic then this is the festival for you. 

What could be better than a day spent in beautiful surroundings with good company and a wide selection of Beers, Ales and Ciders to choose from?

Brewers include: Burning Soul, Two Towers, Thousand Trades, Froth Blowers and Snails Bank.

Live music will be provided by ‘The Brazen’ who will be performing semi acoustic sets at 12noon, 2pm and 4pm. Ukulele Central will also be performing throughout the day.


  • £5 entry fee to the festival only - tickets available on the door on the day. Tickets are non-refundable.
