Beer & Cider Festival
In January 2015, the North’s most spectacular beer event will return to the Velodrome at Manchester’s National Cycling Centre. With over 500 beers, ciders and perries on offer, Manchester Beer & Cider Festival 2015 will be even bigger and better than our début. Expanding on the 2014 event, the festival will take over the whole of the Velodrome including both the floor in the centre of the track and the whole of the concourse area.
Around half the beers will be located on new bars on the concourse area with step free access and in close proximity to thousands of seats overlooking the iconic Velodrome track where once more British Cycling’s Team GB Olympians will train every day (as well as many other local cycling clubs and schools). Food outlets will also be split between the floor & concourse.
The National Cycling Centre is home to both British Cycling and Team Sky and the Velodrome track will remain in use operational throughout the festival. The Great Britain Cycling Team train daily on the track, including some sessions during festival opening hours so there is every chance of catching Olympians & Paralympians like Jason Kenny, Laura Trott & Dame Sarah Storey on the track as you enjoy the beer.
