Yeah! The Beer Festival is back for 2018!
Yes, we had a terrific time in 2017 and learned a huge amount. The sun (a strange thing in the sky that sends warmth and light and not rain) obviously got to our heads as we agreed to do it again.
Before we tell you of what is to come, a big thank you to all those that helped set up, take down and run the event. A warm heartfelt thank you to our neighbours who put up with us. Finally congratulations and thank to all the wonderful musicians of all ages that kept us entertained throughout the day.
Now the sad news: we had to throw away an awful lot of beer and cider! About 350-400 pints!! So this year we will have a few less beers but more of those we hope you will like. The fruit ciders went down very well and likewise, the Enville Ginger (sponsored by Booker Foods) was the first beer to sell out followed closely by Purity Bunny Hop (sponsored by Spout Lane Farm).
Various families on the day asked if they could sponsor a family beer/cider. No sooner said than done, we have created a family package in the online shop and you just need to select that and we will be in touch to discuss the details. Your family name will appear on a beer or cider, we will thank you in the programme and you will receive four free tickets.
As with last year all proceeds will go to the village hall (which is a registered charity) to enable us to keep this venue operating for the good of the village. Remember 30 June 2018 is the date.
All we need you to do is go to the online shop book, your tickets and maybe a sponsorship package and remember to put us in your diary!
