This year’s Blackburn Beer and Gin Festival returns to Blackburn Rugby Club for the 6th time with Farleys Solicitors supporting the event as headline sponsors once again alongside Totally Wicked Limited and Enterprise UK.

The festival will take place across the bank holiday weekend from 29th April – 1st May 2022 and all proceeds will go to Blackburn Youth Zone, a charity youth hub aiming to change the prospects offered to young people in the area, “equipping them with life skills, increased confidence and independence which in turn will regenerate our town from the bottom up”.

The festival will bring a wide variety of lagers, ales, ciders, gins, and fine wines to enjoy alongside entertainment in the form of live music and rugby, and tasty street food. It is expected to attract over 1,000 visitors for the festival with 80 local businesses supporting the sponsors event.

Ian Liddle, Managing Partner at Farleys commented,

Not only does the festival bring the community and local businesses together, it also raises vital funds for Blackburn Youth Zone who do excellent work with young people in the area.
