Bandstand Beer Festival

The annual Bandstand Beer & Music Festival is the largest independant beer festival in the Scottish Highlands and attracts visitors from all over the UK.  The next festival will take place over nine days 3 - 12 April 2015 with around 160 different ales to choose from, live music and great food throughout.

We're now working on the list of beers. If you have suggestions, we'd love to know what you think should be included.

We'd like to thank everyone who helped make the 2014  Bandstand Scottish Beer Festival such a run-away success. The musicians, the brewers, our fantastic chefs and incredible, hard-working staff.  We presented 160 casks of Scottish and English ales, ciders and European craft lagers (for ale list click here). We had a fascinating Brewer Talk from Ken Duncan, Head Brewer from Inveralmond Brewery. And we raised over £500 for MFR Cash for Kids.  Thank you to everyone who contributed and especially to the brewereries for donating items to be sold for charity.  We have raised £6,500 for the charity so far.

We hope to see you soon!
