You can expect some sterling food options, thanks to Manchester Craft Beer Festival partnering with KANTINA, the festival dedicated to celebrating food and drink. Some of the names on the line-up include Higher Ground, Belzan Pasta Kitchen, Madre and Patty Queen, with many more on the day.

When it comes to music, Queen Bee will be joining the King of funk & soul (and Red Dwarf alumni, of course) Craig Charles, Daddy G of Massive Attack, Bristol’s legendary Wild Bunch Sound System and London’s art rock band Django Django on the decks to provide the perfect sonic backdrop to the festival.

Each ticket is priced at £49.50 and allocates guests to a five-hour session on Friday or Saturday, includes all your beer, access to all food traders and a special festival beer glass.
