Fylde Rugby Club’s first-ever Beer, Gin and Fizz Festival takes place over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (Friday 26th May – Sunday 28th May) – offering a great line-up of live music, amazing street food, big prize raffles plus lots of family-friendly activities.
And local businesses have already generously stepped up to support the innovative Festival – so much so that all the available barrel sponsorships have already been snapped up.
Questa, Clayton’s Jewellers, Evolve Document Solutions, Gadsden Coupe, Guy Penn, Courtyard Interiors, Alto Roofing, Whitehead and Howarth, The Buzz Factory, Hosk Resin, Johnson Gas Heating and Plumbing are amongst more than 45 local businesses that have already sold out the available sponsored barrels.
Bowland Brewery is supplying 45 beers, whilst there will also be a selection of local and national gins and a range of prosecco and champagne.
Anthony Hoskisson, President of Fylde RUFC, is grateful for the business support. He said: “We’re all excited about the new festival on the May Bank Holiday. The local community always supports the club in their numbers. We hope the festival will be no exception. Barrel sponsorships are a simple way for businesses to support this new event. And we are grateful for local business support.”
In addition to providing vital support for the rugby club, the festival will also be an opportunity for members of the community to come together and enjoy a fun-filled weekend
The festival crowd is expected to exceed 2,000 over the weekend. Fylde Rugby Union Football Club has over 1,000 active members, including players, coaches, and volunteers. The club has a long and successful history, with a strong reputation for developing talented rugby players and contributing to the local community.
Barrel sponsor Graham Clayton from Claytons Jewellers said: “We are proud to support the Fylde Rugby Union Football Club and their upcoming Beer, Gin & Fizz Festival. We know what an important part amateur sport plays in our local community. And Fylde is no exception. We love to support events like this that bring people together.”
The festival takes place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the final May Bank Holiday with Friday’s festivities starting at 5 pm and Saturday and Sunday starting at noon.
