Friday night: 6.30pm – 11pm / Saturday: 11am – 11pm

Music: Friday Night – TBC, Saturday 12am till 4pm – TBC, Saturday Evening – TBC

Please note – entry to the Beer Festival itself is Free, however on the Saturday you will need to pay entry to the Food Festival field, which is £3.50 for adults (£3 in advance from the TIC) and free to children 16 & under.

All you need to do is turn up and buy an official glass and beer tokens, and you’re off!

It’s alive I tell you… It’s aliiiiiiiiiiiive!!

So… 200 years ago a 21-year-old woman posited that if you tazered a man’s “bolts” you could put some life into the old boy, and quite literally mobilise a dead body…and so a Classic was born.

12 years ago, some wily old BRT members posited that if you put beer in a tent, in a field, then that too would not only mobilise the bodies of Bridport, but also, hopefully, help to raise a lot of money for local charities, local groups and local good causes. They weren’t wrong and another classic was born.

12 years on and with the best part of £130k raised for amazing causes within Bridport and the surrounding areas, BRT’s current Dr F. (or Ed as we call him) has sewn together the usual old pieces of Beer Fest flesh and asked his faithful old Igor (you know who you are) to connect the jump leads…and Bob’s your mum’s bro… IT IS ON!!
This year’s Monster Mash kicks off at 6.30pm on 15th June and, like some 200-year-old Gothic Horror, gallops towards it’s splendid, dramatic, and monstrously poignant conclusion on Saturday 16th June.
Prepare for the usual cornucopia of ales, ciders and a few cheeky draught beers… AND this years’ innovation Wino’s Corner, which sees BRT’s commitment to inclusion being demonstrated to provide for those who in years gone by were seen as the designated drivers.

So save the date, book the sitter, stockpile the Neurofen and Lucozade…and whatever you do, make sure you’re there!
