Brewery drinks a toast to Coastival success

Wold Top creates ‘Coastivale’ beer

Thirsty supporters of Scarborough arts festival Coastival will be able to drink a toast to the event with a specially-created beer!

Award-winning local brewery Wold Top has brewed up Coastivale in honour of the three-day arts festival to be held from 12th to 14th February.

The beer, described as “A golden pale ale, triple hopped to give a fruity bitterness” will be going on sale in local pubs.

More than 100 events, shows and attractions – the majority of them free – will be staged in and around Scarborough during Coastival.

Coastival’s organisers, Scarborough-based arts development agency Create, say it is the first time a beer has ever been created for Coastival.

Director Wendy Holroyd said: “We are thrilled that Wold Top is supporting Coastival 2016 and honoured to have our very own beer!

“I’m sure it will be very popular and go down a treat!”

Wold Top Brewery was founded in 2003 by arable farmers Tom and Gill Mellor and is based at Hunmanby. It uses traditional methods and recipes to brew real ales with character and over the years has won many awards for its beers. [see editor’s note for more information, below].

Gill Mellor, Wold Top Brewery director, said: “Wold Top Brewery is passionate about supporting the arts, so we’re delighted to be working with the Coastival team and supplying the special Coastival Ale to pubs and restaurants in Scarborough. We wish the team every success with this spectacular series of events.”

Copies of the Coastival 2016 programme are now available from Woodend, Scarborough Spa, The Stephen Joseph Theatre, Mojo’s, the YMCA, The Street, the Rotunda, Scarborough Library, the Art Gallery and a host of other cafes, shops and galleries.

Tickets for all the concerts are on sale now via the Spa box office and Coastival website at As well as individual tickets, two special ticket offers are available, one covering the whole weekend’s music, the other for the Saturday only.
