Let’s get this party started!

Well it’s official, the famous Barquee is back for our 67th year! After meetings with Joe and Jack Boniface of Blackpool HC and East London HC, we have had confirmation that we have the green light for 2018.

This will be a hockey player only venue, run by hockey players for hockey players. Joe and Jack have attended many festivals over the years…so these guys know exactly what you want over the Easter weekend.

They will have a fully kitted (and heated) marquee with Bierkeller style seating, sound and lighting all day AND late into the night, with drinks offers, discounts, jugs, shots and even Snakebite. They will also have jagermeister, cider, lager, ale and Prosecco on tap!

There will be the usual social events taking place in the Barquee with a pre-festival warm up session on Thursday, Team Shirt night with DJ Dave Pope as ever spinning the party tunes we love on Friday and the band on Saturday with the surprise theme to be announced shortly. Both nights will have the infamous BHF buses to town and drop you at the front door of the exclusive after parties once the Barquee closes.

We cannot wait to welcome everyone this Easter 2018 and although places are filling fast with almost 30 teams entered and an estimated 600 participants, there is still time to enter.

Just let us know ASAP and we will reserve a space for you…especially if you are a Men’s team!  There are already several brand new teams, along with the usual suspects and visitors from Germany, Ireland, The Isle of Man and Scotland.
