KNUTSFORD Beer Festival is returning to Egerton Place this year.

The event was due to have been held at The Courthouse but had to change venue after the hotel went into administration.

The festival will now celebrate its 10th anniversary from April 25-27 at the town centre venue they have used for the past two years.

Festival chairman Andrew Malloy said: "Like many people, all of us here at the Knutsford Beer Festival were saddened to receive notification from the Courthouse that it was closing its doors.

“Our thoughts go out to the owners and employees at the venue who worked so hard to give Knutsford another great venue, and to those companies and couples who had events booked there this year.

“We have been extremely fortunate that our good friends at MBOSS, the property management company that owns Egerton Place, have come to our rescue.

“It gives us great pleasure to announce that the Knutsford Beer Festival 2024 will be returning to our wonderful home of the last two years, Egerton Place.”

This volunteer-run event has raised more than £50,000 since it was launched 10 years ao.

This year the festival will share profits between two local charities, Hope Central and Stable Minds.

The biggest choice of beers to date will include 45, all of which will be listed in a digital drinks list that was piloted last year.

For non-beer drinkers, Morgan Evans will be running a wine bar again as well as serving fizz and gin.

Andrew said: “We hope this will be another great year for the beer festival.

“Huge thanks again to Peter Smith and the team at MBOSS for their continued generosity.

"We look forward to seeing all our friends and supporters at Egerton Place in April."

A mix of Live and DJ music is planned for the evenings and the Saturday afternoon will see the return of the tasting masterclasses, all included in the ticket price.

Local businesses interested in supporting the event can take a sponsorship package from £80 upwards.

The team of volunteers running the festival includes Andrew Malloy, Kevin Jardine, Zoe Fogg, Sandra Curties, Colin Kemshead, Rachel Bishop, Laura Anderson, Paul Langley, David Morgan, Mike Braun, Lisa Benskin and Claire Sawyer.
