Here are a couple of dates not to miss – Friday 13th and Saturday 14th April when The Hangar will be transformed into BEERTOPIA 2018.

Think cask ales and beers, Prosecco (for those who prefer the grape to hops) and live bands plus a selection of ‘Dude Food’ such as hog roast, beefburger de-luxe and fish & chips. We should add that all the beer and Prosecco are included in the ticket price so the only extra is the food at £6 each. Latest food news from the Chefs in the Kesgrave kitchen is they are serving hog roast, hot salt beef, chargrilled haloumi with spiced chick peas and chilli con carne with braised rice and crushed tortillas!

The bands – J S & The Lockerbillies, Frisco Monk and Aartwork – have been provided by Colchester event company Pink Shed, who will be running the show from the music side.

What else do you need to know?

Doors open at 6.30pm with the first band on stage at 7.30, food will be available from 7.00pm and the ‘bar’ will be open until 11.30pm.

How much are the tickets?

£30 per person for all your beer/Prosecco, bands and a proper glass tankard to take home at the end of the night.

Where do I buy tickets?

Tickets are only available online here.  If you have any other questions, give Kesgrave Hall a call on 01473 333741.
