The Ale & Arty beer festival returns to Stockton’s ARC for another year, finding itself again inked firmly into many a discerning drinker’s diary. As the pumps get ready for business from Thursday 25th until Saturday 27th February, it promises to be another memorable weekend on Teesside. With top of the range comedy, music, and entertainment, tickets won’t be available for long, so move fast to reserve yourself a seat at the table.

Presented once again by CAMRA, refreshments come courtesy from folks taking pride in their products. All tastes are catered for with a mouthwatering selection of quality ales available and for those looking for an alternative tipple, specialist perry, ciders and lagers will also come chilled to refresh.

With drinks taken care of, Catch 22 will provide the laughs, so hold tightly onto your glass. Matt Reed hosts new cutting edge comedy, alongside headline acts and rising stars on the scene Andy Robinson and Larry Dean.

Musically, Teesside’s very own Mike McGrother can be found doing what he does best, taking it to the people and leaving them unable to stand still. Joined by friends on well-trodden boards, they promise their own mix of Springsteen, Dylan and MacGowan; it’s certain drinks won’t be the only things on tap.

Highly antictipated by those who have attended in previous years, Ale & Arty promises good times and good people!

Ale & Arty takes place at ARC, Stockton from Thursday 25th until Saturday 27th February.
