Bushy's Village is back for 2019

Brewery has "bigger and better" plans

Local brewery Bushy's has promised an "even bigger and better festival experience" during next year's TT fortnight.

In a post on social media, the brewery encouraged its fans to "keep their eyes peeled for announcements about the 2019 Bushy's TT Village".

Organisers will soon be looking for potential catering partners, staff, musicians and entertainers - as plans for the second instalment in its new format fall into place.

This year, the long-standing annual Bushy's tent moved to the gardens of the Villa Marina for the first time.

That's after the company lost out to local rival Hooded Ram in Douglas Council's tender process for use of the Bottleneck car park site, which Bushy's held for two decades previous.

However, Boss Martin Brunnschweiler says it's the best thing to happen to Bushy's in the brewery's history.

On Wednesday of race week alone, the 4,000-capacity venue welcomed 12 and a half thousand people through its doors.

As things stand, both Bushy's and Hooded Ram are set to return for the 2019 festival.
