We have had to take the difficult decision to postpone this year’s beer festival. Our organising starts in earnest in April and we have no way of knowing whether conditions will return to anything approaching normal by the summer. As you know we give away all the profit from the festival each year, so we have no contingency if (uninsurable) things go awry.
We will wait to see how the covid-19 situation develops and hopefully come up with an alternative plan. Watch this space….
You all contribute towards making the day a success. Last year we raised an amazing £21,550! Just over half of this money went to Bloodwise (formerly known as Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research) and the remainder was distributed amongst local groups and charities that contribute to the collective wellbeing in our local area. With your help, we hope to make the same amount (or more!) in 2020!
If previous years have inspired you to get involved, contact us at [email protected]. Any help before, during or in the aftermath is greatly appreciated!
Please remember that glass is not allowed in the festival (it is normally a cattle field), which is why we have polycarbonate glasses. Please do not bring your own alcohol. We have gone to great lengths to provide alternatives for those who don’t want beer so please make use of them!
