AMP Awards final
The winners of the AMP Awards from each of the regions - Harrogate, Bradford, Leeds and York - will now get another opportunity to compete. The AMP Yorkshire Grand Final will take place on Sunday 24th August at the Galtres Parkland Festival in Helmsley.
The festival doesn't let any alcohol into the arena. Small amounts may be taken into the campsites (max 6 cans per person) and strictly no glass is allowed. The event started out 8 years ago as a beer festival with the aspiration of supporting local independent breweries and cider makers, and wants to stay true to their roots. They source their own beers, ciders and wines just as they did when it was a beer festival, these are priced at £3.50/pint or 175ml fair trade wine. We also supply 4-pint carry-out kegs for the campsites.
More information will be here when available.
