Sponsored Big Bus Beer Tour 2018

July 21 2018


The Sponsored Big Bus Beer Tour takes place on Saturday 21st July 2018.

Following on from the success of last year we are excited to release the new summer date for this year’s BBBT!

Our good friends at Arriva have agreed to, as with last year, offer a day’s free travel on the Wrexham to Chester bus route. Not only will you get free bus travel, you’ll also be privy to various special offers from our official pub and establishments.

Spread the word, because this year is going to be bigger and better than before with more pubs and offers!!

Information packs (including wristbands) will be sent out nearer to the event date.

Whilst we encourage you to have a great time, your health is important to us and we remind all participants to drink responsibly. You can find out more information by visiting drinkaware.co.uk.

Free travel on the Wrexham to Chester bus route as kindly offered by our friends at Arriva.

What does the day consist of?

We will soon be releasing a number of pubs and establishments that have signed up to be official stops on the route. These pubs and establishments will have special offers on food and/or drink for participants with wristbands to enjoy. There will also be establishments that will be a part of the route but who choose to make a donation to Nightingale House Hospice based on sales of certain products (ie. craft ales, food or a raffle).
