The music night is the latest event in the brewery’s 2024 programme, which includes a cocktail evening, beer festivals, an evening of art, a 10k run, a cycling sportive and the return of the Shakespeare touring company.

The Cloughton Rat Pack was born in 2007 when a group of friends, Paul Mintoft, Steve Chambers, Jezz Pratt, Clive Welburn and Tim Osborne, wanted to fundraise for St. Catherine’s Hospice as a thank-you for the great care the hospice gave their friend, Mick Readman. The group raised over £4,000 in the early days hosting talent shows, quiz nights and the annual memorial cricket weekend. When they wondered what else they could do to raise money for the hospice, another friend, Mark Gay, suggested they form a band, and the rest is history.

Wold Top was founded in 2003 and is located on the Mellor family farm at Hunmanby Grange near Filey. The team use home-grown barley and water from the farm’s borehole to produce a range of award-winning cask, keg and bottled beers that are available throughout Yorkshire and nationwide.
