Coronavirus update:

Due to current restrictions in light of rising infection rates and in order to protect the safety of artists and staff we are now unable to livestream Monday and Wednesday lunchtime concerts from Leeds Town Hall as previously advertised. Lunchtime audio streams are cancelled until 22 Feb at the earliest. We will review the situation regularly and ask that you check our  websites and social media for further updates. In the meantime stay safe and well.

9th Leeds International Beer Festival

9th Leeds International Beer Festival

Thu 2 - Sun 5 September
Leeds Town Hall

We hope you’re all well and keeping safe. Thanks to everyone who has been in touch with LIBF over the last few months, we know some of you have been asking about our plans for 2021 and we’re sorry for the time it’s taken to confirm all of this. However we’re delighted to be able to tell you all that next year’s festival will go ahead from 2 – 5 September 2021. Tickets are now on sale with no price increase (please note the Box Office is open Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm). If you purchased a ticket for the 2020 cancelled event this will still be valid for the same session next year and you do not need to do anything further.

We will of course be keeping a close eye on developments with regards to COVID-19 and we will need to change some of things we do at the festival to make sure it continues to be safe for everyone. We’ll issue updates and guidance in the run up to the event.

After the last year, which has been difficult for so many, we hope you’ll be able to join us for a huge beer celebration in 2021!

In the meantime stay safe and if you can, support your local breweries and bars  – they will need it more than ever over these winter months.
