Monkey in the Woods beer festival at Smithills – sunshine, music and craft beer!
Last weekend saw the first Monkey in the Woods beer festival at Smithills Estate, run by CAMRA’s Bolton Pub of the Year, Northern Monkey Brew Co. With a range of Northern Monkey beers and other Bolton brewery beers on tap and keg, music from local artists, and food and drink from Smithills Enterprise food outlet The Cakery, it was a lovely, relaxed day in a beautiful part of Smithills Estate. A percentage of ticket sales, beer sales and concession sales come to the Woodland Trust, helping us to look after Smithills Estate. We had lots and lots of kind words on the day, from people who were pleased to see the site being used for a community event like this – and many who want the event to return next year!
