Friday 21 February, 5pm - Late | Saturday 22 February, 12pm - Late Sunday 23 February, 12pm - 8pm


As 2020 is the year of our fifth Gosforth Beer Festival, we just couldn't wait until the summer, so we're gonna shake off the winter blues with a weekend full of beer, street food and free entertainment for all ages with a bonus Winter Beer Festival!
Come in, cosy up and take part.


 We're dropping the sun soaked pales, sours and IPAs for the comfort of Stouts, Porters and Best Bitters pouring from our ever rotating 20 tap bar. There will be live music, including a roaring set from Bagdaddies on Friday night and a Live in the Lounge programmed stage on Saturday, alongside street food from GCT favourites and new names, and look out for some family entertainment on Saturday afternoon.


Keep your eyes peeled for entertainment, food and beer announcements!


Friday 21 February from 7pm

We're having a party on the Friday night of Gosforth Winter Beer Festival! The Baghdaddies’ exuberant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour.





Gosforth Civic Theatre is right next to (literally 2 minutes walk from) Regent Centre Metro Station and Bus Interchange, which means we're on a host of major transport links including Tyne & Wear Metro, Arriva, Stagecoach and Go North East bus services and via car from Great North Road. Please visit our YOUR VISIT section of our website to find directions and the best way to arrive at GCT.

We have a small, free car park but this will be very busy and part reserved for artists and food traders over the weekend, so it's best to avoid planning on parking directly at the venue. Please keep this in mind if you're driving over; we detail alternative parking on our YOUR VISIT page so check it out!


Our festival bar will have a card machine this year! However we'll be encouraging cash where possible, so we'll still be offering cash back on our cafe bar with any purchase or for a minimum fee of 50p, but we'd advise popping to a cash pointbefore you head down just to be safe.There are cash points available at the nearby ASDA and on Gosforth High Street, both of which are a 5-10 minute walk away.


We are a fully accessible venue; all entrances are wheelchair accessible and automatic, there are three accessible toilets on the premises and each area of the building is on one level. Please let us know if you have any questions about access and find out how we can assist.
