About Us

 The 2020 Reet Good Beer Festival will take place from Thursday 17th September – 20th September 2020 on Mesnes Field in the heart of Wigan Town Centre.

We’ll have a selection of ales from breweries across Wigan Borough, the North West and further afield, as well as ciders, and a well-stocked prosecco, and Gin Bar. Also new to this year we will have a authentic Caribbean Rum Shack!  We’ll also have some cracking food!

It’s not just about the drink though – the Reet Good Beer Festival is a much bigger event this year and will be jam-packed with entertainment and  live music on every single day. Enjoy soul and Motown, amazing tribute acts, an award-winning brass band and even a Bavarian Umpah band throughout the 4 day festival.  Find out more about the acts as they’re confirmed on the What’s On page.

On top of all of this, the beer tastes even sweeter because all of the money you spend at the festival is going to a great cause here in Wigan.

The Reet Good Beer Festival is held to raise funds for Wigan Youth Zone, Wigan’s charity youth facility for 8-19 year olds.  

So what are you waiting for, get your tickets now and get yourself down for a reet good night!

Wigan Youth Zone

All money raised at the Reet Good Beer Festival will go towards helping young people at Wigan Youth Zone.

Wigan Youth Zone is a registered charity offering young people somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to. More than just a youth club, the Youth Zone aims to help young people develop real and achievable aspirations so they can fulfil their dreams for the future.

It costs almost £2 million a year to run Wigan Youth Zone and much of this comes from fundraising events such as the Reet Good Beer Festival.  

The Youth Zone helps the whole community and simply couldn’t operate without the community also supporting us.
