Rainhill Beer Festival a huge success at new venue
Over 2000 lovers of real ale have found their way to the Rainhill Beer Festivals in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
For 8 years, Rainhill Rotary Club organised their annual Beer Festival at the Leisure Centre on Warrington Road, Prescot. As a result of Knowsley Councils decision to demolish the building they found that they would be homeless for last year’s event unless they found a new venue.
It was with great relief that the General Committee at the Rainhill Recreation Club in Victoria Terrace, Rainhill offered their support and facilities. This has now been the home of the festival for the last three years.
Constructed in two very large marquees and the main club room the supporters have had a choice of up to 100 different real ales, lagers, ciders . On each occasion, the vast majority of the beer has been enjoyed, with little, if any, remaining by the end of the events..
The event is one of the major fundraising events organised by the club which donates over 80% to local organisations and charities. It is probably the largest Charity Beer Festival in the North West
The event would not be possible without the support of local businesses that sponsored the beers and food and many volunteers who we consider friends of the festival
Already plans are underway to organise this years event at the same venue starting on the Thursday the 12th of November and running through to the 14th of November, 2015
