Summer must be just around the corner as a pop-up biergarten is now open for business.

The temporary pub is run by Thirsty, the drinks business based in Chesterton Road. This year the firm is has a new location – the gardens of St Giles’ Church on the corner of Castle Street and Chesterton Lane.

Last year’s biergarten was in the grounds of the Museum of Technology, but its renovation work caused Thirsty to find a new retreat.

Sam Owens, owner of Thirsty, said: “We had an amazing time with the museum last year, but it became clear in early 2018 that we needed to find a new home.

“The Friends of St Giles’ had been in touch with us last autumn when we held the ‘Thirsty Service’ events at St Philip’s Church on Mill Road. They were keen to see if they could host us, too.

“It quickly became clear that here was another brilliant, unusual venue – perfect for a Thirsty presence this summer.”

The biergarten includes an outdoor bar, seating and streetfood traders as well as facilities for families.

It is now open 3-11pm on Fridays and Saturdays, 3-10pm on Sundays, until September 2. It will also be open on Bank Holiday Monday.
