Ruddfest 2017 – Thursday 1st June to Sunday 4th June


Ruddfest, Ruddington’s annual beer and cider festival, will be making a welcome return Thursday 1st June to Sunday 4th June, with over 150 tipples on offer for thirsty visitors to enjoy.

As in previous years, the festival will be celebrating local products, with many of the ales and ciders sourced from East Midlands breweries including Castle Rock, Shipstone’s, Navigation, Nottingham Brewery and The Bottle Kicking Cider Company, to name just a few.

Says John: ‘We’re still finalising the entertainments programme, so keep an eye on the Ruddfest Facebook page for the latest news and event timings. You’ll also find information at each participating pub’s own website and social media pages, and at the official Ruddfest website, www.ruddfest.co.uk. And look out for the beer and cider lists, plus tasting notes, for each venue, which will be published nearer the time.
