Published: Thursday, 5th July 2018

Gladstone Pottery Museum and the Longton Community Partnership are working together to hold the 8th annual Longton Beer Festival this weekend.

The festival will take place in the unique setting of the museum’s cobbled courtyard on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 July. Opening hours are 7 – 11pm each evening, with last orders at 10:30pm.

Visitors will have a large range of beers, ciders and wine to choose from while they enjoy live music from local band The Magnetic Jellyfish in the Grade II* listed yard.

The festival raises thousands of pounds for the Longton Community Partnership, a volunteer run organisation which promotes the town.

Cllr Anthony Munday, cabinet member for greener city, development and leisure, said: “Longton Beer Festival has been growing in popularity year on year. The fantastic setting and choice of high quality and unusual drinks on offer have made the festival a firm favourite amongst the people of Stoke-on-Trent.”

The event is strictly over 18s only and admission is £5 per person.
