The return of the 2022 Beer & Music Festival is within sight, and updates are starting to fly out!

Event Day Rovers are now on sale for Sunday; if you book three days in advance online, you can save 15% off the rover. Come and spend the festival’s final day travelling through the Worth Valley; The Flying Landlord & The Osset Brewery Express will be in service along the railway.

More Breweries!

First up, three more breweries have been added to the festival, all from Yorkshire. Harrogate Brewery, Amity Brew Co and Bini Brew Co Between them bring a whole collection of styles of ales, IPAs, lagers and sours. Harrogate Brewery and Amity Brew Co will be in the marquee at Ingrow Yard, with Bini Brew Co will be joining the main festival site in Oxenhope Exhibition Shed.

A touch of Music!

The first four acts for the 2022 Beer & Music Festival have been announced; returning favourites Eddie Earthquake and the Tremors & Hit The Lights will headline at Ingrow Yard on Friday & Saturday. Wired, who have proved popular at this year’s Haworth Haddocks, are joined by the Tin Soldiers, who took the stage by storm last year with their brass party band!

Time for Traction

Across the Festival weekend, they’ll be different traction carrying passengers and hauling special brewery trains.
While every effort will be made to ensure that the advised motive power is available, the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway reserves the right to change this when operational circumstances dictate.

The DMU 144011 will be in service on Thursday, running hourly shuttles and stopping at each station. 5820 37075 will run across the weekend, with Class 37 hauling the early services.

Along with our current home fleet, Ian Rileys 44871 LMS Stanier Class 5 is expected to visit KWVR in October, while our 45212 ‘Black 5’ stays on hire with Riley & Sons hauling The Jacobite. 75078 BR Class 4 is nearing the end of overhaul and is expected to be in service for the Beer & Music Weekend
