Big Weekend 2023
Fri 4th, Sat 5th & Sun 6th August
The Fort Hotel’s Big Weekend started in 2006 and has become a firm favourite of locals and tourists alike since. The Big Weekend began to compliment the Fisherman’s Beer Festival, which fell on the Spring bank holiday weekend. The Big Weekend was to give those attending the beer festival, somewhere to go in the evening and night.
While the beer festival had feared the Big Weekend may detract people, it actually did the opposite with 2006 being one of the beer festivals busiest years.
