Two More Festivals to Try

This weekend, should you be in the area, and at a loose end and want to try somewhere different we have two festivals to visit. One is an old favourite, the other a new kid on the block.

The first is at The Swan at Crimble near Slaithwaite. Easily reachable by train from Huddersfield and if previous experience is anything to go by, is well worth a trip up the valley to see what Jonny has to offer. Starting Thursday through to Sunday it showcases up to 40 beers through 20 handpumps, with many interesting beers on offer. While you are in the area, why not have a call at the Commercial, in Slaithwaite too. Jonny's 2nd pub in the village, and with 8 beers on the bar well worth a call.

The other festival is at Holmfirth Cricket Club, just off Huddersfield Rd, on Saturday only,and is tied in to the Holmfirth Folk Festival at the same weekend. They promise a variety of 20 beers, but not having seen a list I cannot confirm what is available, except there will be a Mallinsons available. Parking will be at a premium but there is a frequent bus service from Huddersfield.
