2024 Isle of Man Beer & Cider Festival dates announced

Annual event celebrates Manx and UK real ale producers

The dates for the 11th CAMRA Isle of Man Beer & Cider Festival have been announced.

Each year more than 2,000 visitors head to the Villa Marina in Douglas to sample a wide array of real ales, ciders, perries and fruit wines from UK and Manx producers.

This year's event will take place from 11-13 April.

Tickets will be available on the day, as well as in advance from the Villa Gaiety box office, the Welcome Centre at the Sea Terminal and online.

A statement from the Beer and Cider Festival says: "As with previous festivals, the bars will be situated in the Villa Marina Royal Hall."

"This year there will be 120 real ales from around the UK, plus locally produced beers and a large variety of ciders, perries, fruit wines and mead.

"In short, there will be something on offer to suit all tastes and palates. Food will also be available.

"Advocates Humphrey & Helfrich are once again the main sponsors of the festival. Their continued generous support allows the organisers to keep the ticket prices for each session to an affordable level."
