North Moreton Beer and Cricket Festival 2018


North Moreton Beer and Cricket Festival

The annual North Moreton beer and cricket festival takes place this year from Thursday 26th July through to Sunday 29th July and will offer the tried and tested formula of real ale, cricket, good food and live music.
Always a hugely popular event with increasing numbers of visitors every year, the festival takes place around the The Bear and the adjacent village cricket pitch and as usual will include an extensive range of local real ales and ciders on offer throughout the event.

Free entry, although if you arrive on the Saturday please follow the advice and instruction of car park attendants; there will be a small charge if you want to park in the “premium” car park area immediately behind the pub and next to the cricket pitch.

The Bands!

Thursday evening from 9pm we have  Los Libido!

“If you love cocktails and are never sure what to choose, let Los Libido provide you with the perfect recipe!

Take a large measure of Southern States Rock, add a dash of Blues, a twist of Americana and serve with slices of Raw Country and Tex Mex, all mixed together with real West Coast Love. The result? – Musical Moonshine! 

This band of “seasoned” local musicians will serve you with this potent concoction that works like Auditory Viagra, by getting your toes tapping, your heart racing and keeping you rocking all night. So get those air guitars dusted off, your boogie shoes polished and be ready to enjoy the unique and magical taste of Los Libido! “


Friday evening from 9pm we have a brilliant covers band “The Scoundrels”

‘We’re a highly polished 5 piece covers band with great presence and a massive high energy sound! Performing an irresistible set of rock, pop, and disco classics that span the decades, we are ready to party with you!


Saturday evening from 9pm we have 80’s rock band “The M.F.U”

‘Hello?-its the 80’s…we want our songs back!!!’
  The M.F.U have a very simplistic take on what should make a good band…great songs!
  Hopefully we will take you on a journey through long lost gems of tunes,not heard everyday…well not in this decade anyway.
…Well it’s not going to rock itself is it?!


The Food!

Thursday Evening 6pm-10pm: we will be offering our standard BBQ including burgers, hot dogs and vegetarian alternatives

Friday evening 6pm-10pm: Alongside our standard BBQ offering, we will be doing “Asian take-out” themed food! Think chicken balls, crispy duck, satay chicken, fried rice and noodles, sweet and sour sauce, curry sauce, hosin sauce… and build your own take-out!

Saturday 12pm-10pm: Our BBQ and Asian take out food will be available all day!

Sunday 12pm-5pm: Our standard BBQ with hot dogs and burgers (+vegetarian alternatives) will be available.

Provided the weather is kind to us, we will have plenty of ice cream and lollies available throughout the weekend as well.

For those of you who will be with us early doors to watch the first cricket games of the day, or to help cure the sore head, there will be a breakfast BBQ available 9.30am-11am on the Saturday and Sunday morning.

A great event for all the family and we hope to see you there!
