Covid-19 update – March 2021
The organising committee of the Hook Norton Festival of Fine Ales have made the decision not to go ahead with the festival this year in its’ usual format or on its’ usual date. We are currently exploring the possibility of running a smaller joint event with HN Brewery using the brewery yard and the field towards the end of September, possibly the 25th. This will be a ticketed event which is more likely to comply with whatever social distancing requirements might still be in place at that point.
We feel it is important to hold a Festival this year even if it is slightly different and our aim is still to raise a significant amount of money for both Blood Cancer UK and the many local charities that we support. We are confident that, with your support, we will be able to achieve this and have a memorable event.
We will be offering tickets within the village before they go on general release. It is still early days organisation-wise so we will keep you up to date with developments.
You all contribute towards making the day a success. In 2019 we raised an amazing £21,550! Just over half of this money went to Blood Cancer UK (formerly known as Bloodwise, and before that, 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 raise more funds to distribute later this year.
