Support for Yorkshire Air Ambulance & Town Academy

- Monkeyfest supporting Keep It Up in 2017
- Beer festival returns on 1 & 2 July
- Special brew made in honour of Town

The ‘Monkeyfest’ beer festival will return for an 11th year in early July 2017 – and will once again support Huddersfield Town’s ‘Keep It Up’ campaign.

Held in the local village of Armitage Bridge, ‘Monkeyfest’ has been a staunch supporter of the campaign that raises money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town Academy for several years now, raising thousands of pounds in the process.

The festival will be held at the Armitage Bridge Club (Dean Brook Road, Armitage Bridge, HD4 7PB) over two days; noon until 10.30pm on Saturday 1 July 2017 and noon until 9pm on Sunday 2 July 2017.

Themed around the Apollo 11 moon landing this year and sponsored by Norseland, over 60 different real ales, ciders and lagers will be on sale – including a special Town brew called ‘Better than Kl-Hopp’!

There will also be six live bands at the event over the weekend.
