Galloway’s is hosting their second Beer and Banger Festival in Walmer Bridge

Local sight loss charity Galloway’s is hosting its second Beer and Banger Festival in Walmer Bridge this summer.


The family-friendly three-day event will take place from Friday 5 August to Sunday 7 August at Walmer Bridge Village Hall, near Longton.

There will be a huge selection of cask ales, lagers, ciders, wine and gin on offer. There will be something for everyone – from bitter to pale ale, to fruit beers to stout.

Local breweries are well represented, including Hawkshead Windermere Pale, Bowland Brewery Pheasant Plucker, Lancaster Black and Settle Blonde.

BBQ food will be available, and a wide range of kids’ activities including face-painting and a bouncy castle. There will be live entertainment every day, with acts including Run for Cover, Grace Sarah, Lucy Fellows, The Amber List and Phil Ireland and Co.

Last year’s event raised over £38,000 for Galloway’s who support people affected by sight loss in Lancashire and Sefton.

Each year, Galloway’s supports thousands of people from the local community to ensure nobody has to face sight loss alone.

From face-to-face support, advice about equipment, opportunities to take part in sporting
activities or to meet other blind and partially sighted people.

Iain Pearson, the new CEO of Galloway’s, said: “Galloway’s is proud to have such strong local support and this event is a fantastic way for us to bring our community together for a fun-filled weekend.

“We hope to raise £50,000 this year; these vital funds will help Galloway’s support blind and partially sighted people in the North West tolive full and independent lives.”

Wristbands cost £8.50 in advance (£10 on the door) and give you access to all three days of the event, including a free programme and souvenir pint glass.

Children’s wristbands cost £3.50 and a family of four (two adults, two children) can attend for £20.
