2024 events at the Briarbank

With 2024 now well underway, we take some time to reflect on the year ahead and all the wonderful events which we have lined up. From our Sunday Jazz afternoons, which are now in their 11th year to the return of our live music evenings, and, of course, popular festivals, it’s set to be a great year of entertainment at the Briarbank.

Live Music

Alongside our ever popular Sunday Jazz afternoons, which take place the third Sunday of every month, we will be hosting live music every Friday (well, near enough every Friday) in our marquee. From great cover bands to solo artists and more, we’re looking forward to welcoming some new acts to the Briarbank as well as welcoming back some familiar bands. Our live music will start and finish the amazing The Three Chordettes, commencing on Friday 29 March 2024 and finishing on Sunday 15 September 2024, at our second Gin and Rum Festival for the year.

However, don’t forget, even though our live music evenings will come to an end in September, our monthly jazz, will continue to run throughout the year, and we will have some great live music on Christmas Eve. And, of course, keep your eyes peeled for our New Year’s Eve event too.


We couldn’t have a 2024 calendar of events, without bringing back our popular festivals, and we’re excited to announce we will once again be hosting two beer festivals and two gin and rum festivals throughout the year.

  • Briarbank’s Spring Beer Festival – Wednesday 1 May 2024 – Monday 6 May 2024
  • Gin and Rum Festival – Wednesday 22 May 2024 – Monday 27 May 2024
  • Briarbank’s Summer Beer Festival – Wednesday 21 August 2024 – Monday 26 August 2024
  • Gin and Rum Festival – Wednesday 11 September 2024 – Monday 15 September 2024

With free entry, and live music throughout the weekend, note the dates, grab your friends and come and join us for a fun-filled festival. Make sure you keep your eyes on our social platforms, as we will be announcing more details in due course.

Tap Takeovers

We always have such a fantastic weekend when we run our tap takeovers, that we can’t wait to do it all again for 2024. This year they will be taking place:

  • Friday 5 July – Saturday 6 July
  • Saturday 28 October – Sunday 29 October

Keep your eyes peeled for more details coming soon. But, for now, we can tell you, there will be live music happening throughout the weekend.

And that’s not all……
We will also be continuing with our monthly quiz nights, which from April, will move to the first Thursday of the month.
