Raise your glasses for the Fullerians Rugby Club real ale and cider festival
Two dozen different real ales and ten ciders will be available for tasting during the Fullerians Rugby Club real ale and cider festival at the clubhouse in Coningesby Drive, Watford, for three days from March 1.
Connoisseurs will be able to tantalise their taste buds on all manner of curious brews, supplied by the award winning independent Tring Brewery, and a selection of specially sourced West Country ciders.
Visitors will be able to sample everything from Tring’s Side Pocket for a Toad and Moongazer ales to Mighty Oak’s Oscar Wild Mild and the Potbelly brewery’s Captain Pigwash.
On the cider front the rugby club will feature the likes of Burrow Hill’s Alf & Alf, Gwatkin’s Yarlington Mill and Once Upon a Tree’s Tumpy Ground.
It will also be a weekend of live music with five local bands performing in a marquee at the rugby club ground. The Ivies and Y-Knot will perform on Friday, February of Saturdays and Vine Messiah perform on Saturday, and The Flaming Cortinas will be there on Sunday.
Despite being a rugby club, football fans will be able to catch Watford verses Wolves live on the Friday night.
Sunday will be something of a family fun day with minis and junior rugby in the morning, followed by ferret racing, welly wangling and more fun and games in the afternoon.
The event, which is raising cash for the Fullerians clubhouse redevelopment fund, will kick off at 4pm on Friday with a VIP opening.
The festival will run from 4pm on Friday and from 11am on Saturday and Sunday. Food will be served throughout the weekend and admission is free.
