Brewery joins the festival team

ORGANISERS of the Bearded Theory Festival, taking place at Kedleston Hall in Derby between May 18-20 have announced that local brewery Thornbridge have been appointed to provide all on-site bars at the 5,000 public capacity event.

Thornbridge will also have an exclusive ‘Bearded Theory’ festival ale on sale to mark the occasion.

Underlining Bearded Theory’s commitment to supporting local businesses, it is fitting that the Thornbridge Brewery is located in in Bakewell, just 20 miles from the festival site.

Richard Bryan from Bearded Theory says, “We are delighted to be working with Thornbridge Brewery on this most crucial aspect of our event. With their experience of running a successful venue, Thornbridge have a great track record working with live music. We are all looking forward to supping a pint of ‘Bearded Theory’ in the bar at some point over the weekend.”
