Baytown Beer Festival 2015 Hosted by The Victoria Hotel, Robin Hood’s Bay

The Baytown Beer Festival at the Victoria Hotel in Robin Hood’s Bay is to be held on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 August 2015.
Hosted by the Victoria Hotel, in conjunction with local company Baytown Beers, the festival will showcase all Baytown’s beers together with a wide range of real ales from in and around the North York Moors National Park.

The Baytown Beer Festival aims to give a fun bank holiday weekend for all the family and will include music, local crafts and local produce. The Festival will also seek to raise money for a local charity which will be announced at a later date.

Organisers Andrew Fiddler of the Victoria Hotel and Paul Johnston of Baytown Beers said: “We aim to run a festival that will please real ale connoisseurs and people wanting a fun day out. If there are any local craftsmen or women, artists or food producers who would like to be involved then please do get in touch.”
