ANDERTON BOAT LIFT’S ANNUAL BEER & CIDER FESTIVAL
ANDERTON BOAT LIFT’S ANNUAL BEER & CIDER FESTIVAL IS BACK WITH A BANG FRIDAY 26 MAY – SUNDAY 28 MAY
Fans of real ale and cider will be in for a treat at the Anderton Boat Lift’s annual Beer & Cider Festival, being held this year from Friday 26 May – Sunday 28 May. Featuring a selection of 12 of the country’s traditional top ales and ciders, visitors to the iconic ‘Cathedral of the Canals’ in Anderton near Northwich, will also be treated to a series of live acts each evening. Open from 6.30pm – 11.30pm each night, freshly-sourced food will be available from the Lift View each evening. Tickets can be pre-ordered for £5 by calling 01606 786 777 (£7.50 on the night) and beer tokens are £2 each or ten for £15.00.
The Anderton Boat Lift is the world’s first successful boat lift and an acknowledged masterpiece of engineering. Built in 1875 and still in operation today, the Lift is a fascinating combination of working historic structure and fun, educational experience. There is no cost to enter the site, visit the exhibition, stroll around the lawned terraced site, use the playground or visit the popular Coffee Shop and well-stocked shop. However, there is a cost to take one of two boat trips – along the picturesque River Weaver or up the huge Boat Lift (a combined ticket is available).
