Shropshire Festivals are launching a brand-new event this summer that will turn the best bits about going to the pub into a beer festival for Shropshire.
Shropshire Festival’s owner, Beth Heath, comments, “Following the success of Shropshire Oktoberfest over the last two years, we felt there was a gap in the calendar for a similar event that we could enjoy in the sunshine. Shropshire Pub in the Park will be a great day out with friends, family or as a work outing with colleagues or associates.
“We hope to magnify the experience of a fun day in a beer garden to a fantastic day at a beer festival!”
Around 150 drinks to choose from
There will be around 150 drinks to choose from, with real ales served up by local brewers, an extensive gin den, wine bar, pimms tent, cocktails, fizz, and delicious street food featuring every kind of cuisine.
