Corfu beer festival2017 starts tomorrow night at the Brewery in Arillas. Visit the website for full programme of whats on each night apart from drinking Corfu beer and those from Czech Republic. NSK are running a bus to the festival on saturday night for 10€.
Today is the final day of the festival, if you haven't been i recommend you do. I went Thursday and it was a good night, the attendance not helped by the heavy shower that began at 7.20pm in Arillas lasting till nearly 10pm. Excellent country dancers from the Agean followed by some good music.
Last night Arillas didn't just rock, it really rocked. A large crowd packed the marquee, all seats in the dining area packed. The dancers in 50s style dresses and waistcoated male partners were excellent. A Czech mix of folk songs and country dances, different to what we are used to was superb, they ended with a brief thanks in Greek and a Greek song which got them a rousing ovation. There followed a British rocker with ex pat and Corfu band who got the audience on their feet, singing and dancing. This was followed by another band with a male and female singing duo, she wore the tightest leather trousers you could ever see! They wrre absolutely brilliant, lively, good dance, great audience interaction that had everyone of all ages dancing, tapping feet, clapping, singing. I left at 20 past midnight and they were still going strong and the marquee remained packed as Arillas rocked into the night. Another great beer festival night to remember, and the beers and food were great as well.
