posted 06 Mar 2024

Beers, ciders, live music and raising money for charities and local causes – the good times are back at Westlands Entertainment Venue as we host the Yeovil Beer & Cider Festival on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May.

Our Yeovil Beer & Cider Festival will offer an array of at least 30 beers and ales and over 30 ciders, live music from local bands and musicians who will be creating an atmosphere for you to ‘sip back’ and enjoy, plus a range of hearty food to elevate the beer and cider experience.

Local charities will be supported at the festival with some of the proceeds from the drinks tokens purchased going towards charities that include Yeovil Hospital Charity, Freewheelers, Yeovil Opportunity Group and The Foyer Club plus other local good causes.

With two sessions planned for Friday and Saturday, you can take advantage of the multi-day entertainment taking place. As well as entry to your purchased session, your ticket also includes your own festival cup and programme which will be provided on entry to the festival.

The Friday session will run from 6pm – 11pm and tickets are priced at £10. Tickets have been on sale since early February and you can take advantage of an early-bird ticket discount. The first 100 tickets sold on this session will be discounted to £7.50 each. The next 250 will be discounted to £8.50 before returning to full price.

The Saturday session will run from 2pm – 11pm and tickets are priced at £15. Initial early-bird tickets have been snapped up for this session however there remains limited tickets available at a discounted price of £12.50.

Local musicians currently confirmed to play include Twisted Vinyl and Velvet Thunder on Friday. Confirmed for Saturday are D-State, Bad Uncle and Banty Rooster.


Adam Burgan, Venues Manager at Westlands Entertainment Venue, said: “Westlands has been home to so many fantastic festivals over the last few years so we are excited to be hosting and running the Yeovil Beer & Cider Festival. The team are working hard to make sure it’s the best festival experience that everyone has come to love and expect at Westlands. With a fantastic start to ticket sales since going on sale, we are looking forward to seeing the venue filled with people enjoying themselves.”

Soft drinks, gin and wine will also be available at the festival. A drinks token system for the beers, ales, ciders, gin and wine will be in operation with cash and card being taken for soft drinks. Tokens will cost £2.50 each and two tokens can be exchanged for one pint of beer or cider (one token for a half pint).
