CRATE Market #8 | Future Yard

Vinyl + craft beer market

CRATE is our regular craft beer + music market, where you can come and dig through crates of beer, music, and prints to your heart’s content. Our second event of the summer, CRATE #8 will once again take place indoors + outdoors in a much expanded version that takes over the whole ground floor of the venue, followed by a live show in the evening.

We’ll be joined by some of our favourite vinyl vendors and craft beer artisans from around the North West, including a selection of old favourites alongside some new faces that we’re excited to welcome along for the first time.

Whether you’re hoping to find that coveted 12” you’ve been searching for or you’re just looking to sample some of the region’s finest IPAs, we’ll also have activities for kids and the whole family to make it an unmissable day out.

The Market brings together the worlds of vinyl obsessives and craft beer aficionados for a daytime fair that pulls together some of the best local record labels, vendors, brewers, printmakers and DJs in the North West. Starting at 11am and running until 8pm, the Market is free entry.

If you’re looking for something to do afterwards, we’ll also be hosting the inimitable Dur-Dur Band Int. in our Live Room from 8pm. Heroes of the Mogadishu disco scene in their native Somalia, we’re thrilled to have their unique brand of disco-funk landing in Birkenhead to top off CRATE.

CRATE Market #8

CRATE is a celebration of craft beer and vinyl record culture here at Future Yard, and the independent, DIY spirit that unites them both. CRATE takes place regularly throughout the year as quarterly craft beer + music markets.

Independent record stores and independent brewers, record collectors and craft beer lovers; we are all essentially the same, celebrators of unique tastes, all shaped by a love and commitment to individual craft and the embodiment of DIY culture.

CRATE is here to celebrate and bring together these two worlds. To provide a haven for the mashers and the collectors, the acid-jazz seekers and the saison lovers, a moment to indulge, to ferment in the grooves.
