Event Details

Ventnor Botanic Garden is delighted to announce that this year’s Hops Festival will be held on Sunday 24th September from 11am to 6pm, with a brand new flavour.

The Hops Festival celebrates the harvest of the hops grown on site at Ventnor Botanic Garden as well as the continuation of the tradition of picking them by hand. Once picked, they are brewed into our Original Botanic Ale by Yates’ Brewery; or into our Limited Edition Botanic Pale Ale by Goddard’s Brewery. This year, we are also excited to introduce our Botanic Lager with a Hint of Eucalyptus by Goddard’s – a fresh, minty taste to send peppermint sparks through your taste buds.

The Festival will include entertainment for all ages including plenty of competitions and games. Food will be served throughout the day with live music performances including The Ohmz, Fellowship of Groove, Doug Alldred & The Silver Lining and many more who will help to create a merry atmosphere and ensure the celebration of this year’s harvest continues in style.

Entry to the Hops Festival is Free with complimentary parking as well. For those who also want to visit the Garden whilst they are here we simply ask for a donation towards the ongoing maintenance of the Garden (£5 minimum donation).

Hop picking will take place on Tuesday 5th September from 8am. All help is welcomed & rewarded with a complimentary beer!
