Easter Egg hunts and the like might be your thing – or tasks you have to undertake to avoid family ructions! Whichever is you, here at Car-Link, we thought we’d introduce you to – or remind you about – one of the real fun Easter Bank Holiday Weekend events for folk across Bournemouth and the whole of Dorset.
For the sixth time, Easter weekend (3rd – 5th April) gives you the chance to enjoy the terrific atmosphere of The Big Bournemouth Beer Festival, being held at the BIC Purbeck Hall. Incidentally, it’s so popular that you do need to book tickets now for events on Friday and Saturday, and you will then receive a souvenir glass, tasting guide and £1.50 in drinks vouchers. Find out more here: www.bic.co.uk/whats-on/the-6th-annual-big-bournemouth-beer-festival-2015.
If you haven’t been before, it’s a great, relaxed atmosphere whether for couples, groups of friends, or if you are looking to meet some new ones. You’ll have the chance to try some magnificent real ales, plus a selection of seasonal and novelty beers, or enjoy sampling the cider and perry bar offerings. There's terrific food as well.
Then, it’s all about the live music! There will be Celtic-Punk and more from Black Water County; a good-time, seven-piece, hoe-down from The Jimmy Hillbillies; and modern raucous rock meeting traditional instruments, courtesy of Bournemouth’s own The Jack Ratts.
Evening sessions start at 6.30pm, and the Saturday lunchtime one is at noon, as is the Sup-Up Sunday finish, where admission is free – and features Dorset legends Gigs and Rigs offering their renowned Open Mic session, which will include Vintage Dogs, Monkeys Uncle, Dean and Dale Scholey, Fiona Fox and others.
Of course, you do have to be 18 and over to gain admission and please make safe and sensible travel arrangements. The Car-Link team would like to wish you a Happy Easter, and hope that, should you attend the Festival, or any other holiday event, that it’s every bit as much fun as driving one of the superb used sports, prestige and classic cars we always have available!
