Manchester’s famous abandoned train station Mayfield Depot will be transformed into the city’s first contemporary Belgian internal beer garden as premium Belgian lager Heverlee launches a three-day micro-festival in its arches from 11th–13th October.
For the first time in Manchester, Heverlee at Mayfield will fuse Mancunian and Belgian cultures for a pop-up festival curated by some of both locations’ best known names in music, arts and food – transforming the derelict depot’s arches into a bustling European party hub.
The festival will showcase Belgian inspired street food, projections and live street art demos from famed Brussels native DZIA and local city street artists (Tasha Whittle, Tankpetrol and Matt Sewell) plus a selection of eclectic electronic DJs soundtracking the party atmosphere.
At the bar, guests will have the chance to enjoy cold pints of Heverlee creamy pilsner style lager. Heverlee is Belgian born and brewed and was re-created from descriptions of a historical beer brewed by monks at the Abbey of the Order of Premontre, Leuven in 1129. Look out for Heverlee rolling out in stores and bars in Manchester from early October.
The full line-up of arts and entertainment will be available to view on Heverlee’s social channels in the weeks leading up to opening night.
