Curious Brewery becomes headline sponsor of the Curious Arts Festival

By admin, April, 3 2018

Considered to be the UK’s most inventive, intriguing and creative festival, the Curious Arts Festival is renowned for attracting top literary talent as well as comedy, music and poetry. Curious Brewery will become the headline sponsor from the 2018 festival in what we hope will be an ongoing partnership full of irreverent surprises.

The 2018 Festival will take place in Pylewell Park, New Forest, Hampshire, running from Friday 20th until Sunday 22nd July. This year’s line-up includes TV’s choirmaster-in-chief Gareth Malone; the nation’s favourite outspoken barman, Al Murray the Pub Landlord; and Sunday Times Style magazine columnist Dolly Alderton. Music will be served up by the likes of John Newman, Flyte and Bryde.

The sponsorship will see our beer and cider served exclusively in the festival’s bars alongside Chapel Down’s sparkling and still wines. Chapel Down’s newly released Gin and Vodka will also be served, alongside Fever Tree mixers.

On top of the drinks being served, we will be hosting some of its own events including:
– a series of beer and cider masterclasses throughout the weekend, all of which will be free of charge for festival-goers;
– a series of Curious Podcasts with leading acts from the festival, such as John Newman, Al Murray and Gareth Malone; these will be shared in the lead up and over the weekend itself.
Plus, watch out for a series of extensions to this partnership, as the coming together of curious minds finds new reach.

Our Managing Director, Gareth Bath, says, “The Curious Arts Festival is renowned as an always-original celebration of creativity across a variety of art forms. It’s the sort of wonderfully inspiring and off- centred gathering we Brits love.

“We are huge believers in the delicious beauty of unconventionality too. This is going to be such an exciting partnership. There are plenty of boutique festivals in the UK at the moment but the Curious Arts Festival is so wonderfully unique. So quintessentially British. We feel incredibly fortunate to be able to serve our beers and cider, each made with a winemaker’s twist, to all the festival goers attending this year’s event. There are so many great minds in this year’s line-up. This is a showcase event for the creative arts, a festival for the curious, and we’ll drink to that.”

Curious Arts Festival Director Patrick Keogh added, “This year’s line-up is arguably our most adventurous ever and I have no doubt people are going to enjoy every second they spend with us. Offbeat, individual and charmingly reckless we offer a festival weekend like no other.

“Having Curious Brewery, and Chapel Down, on board as our headline sponsors is the icing on the cake. Not only do they offer festival-goers world-class beer, cider, wine and sparkling wine, but they also entirely share our philosophy and I can’t wait to attend one of the masterclasses and listen to the podcasts.”
