Hartlepool Round Table Beer Festival back with a bang, as organisers promise biggest and best event yet
Great food, drink and music will flow as Hartlepool Round Table Beer Festival returns to celebrate its 25th anniversary this weekend.
After being cancelled last year due to the pandemic, the popular event and major fundraiser is back at the Borough Hall on the Headland on Friday, October 8, and Saturday, October 9.
Organisers say advance ticket sales have exceed expectations as they look to make it the biggest and best festival yet with 46 real ales to sample.
“And not unlike previous years, this year we will be showcasing a brand new beer, never seen before.”
There will also be 14 ciders to choose from with a number of fruity flavours such as black cherry, peach and rhubarb, plus several wines.

Joining them on stage will be Electric Sheep, a talented North East five-piece rock band who play covers of popular artists including David Bowie, The Jam, Oasis, The Police, Queen, The Killers, Stereophonics, Kaiser Chiefs and more.
Saturday night’s line up consists of Fizzy Fish who play everything from The Sex Pistols to The Darkness and Oasis, and Hartlepool’s own Rusty Haloz with their set list of floor fillers.
Revellers will not go hungry either with Hartlepool's BURGER DING food business serving up a selection of mouthwatering burgers from the kitchen.
