Charlbury Beer Festival 2016

20th annual Charlbury Beer Festival!

Join us on Saturday 24th June, 2017, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of 'CBF' and 20 years of raising money for good and worthy causes.

Keep visiting this website for updates and news on the entertainment, food and of course, very best in real ale and craft beers!

It's got to be perfect! See Witney TV's great new video shot exclusively at the 2016 fest!

Take a look at our new YouTube Channel to see a great time lapse video the "Charlbury Beer Festival - before, during and after".











Thank you to Falk Schieber for his photos of CBF 2013.

Shakespeare and all things beer.

We marked the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, by celebrating his life and works with a 'Shakespearean' theme at the festival.

It may not quite have been "The Merchant of Venice", but we also enjoyed the only UK appearance of the BirraBus, serving six incredibly tasty Italian craft beers!

Click here to watch us rolling beer barrels down Shakespeare's Way as we stocked up on our 50 ales.

2016 beer list is online and available as a download!

A good cause

The Charlbury Beer Festival exists solely to raise money for good causes.

Charlbury Primary School has been our biggest beneficiary, but we support a wide range of community groups and projects in the Charlbury area and beyond. More recently we have allocated a proportion of our funds each year to a hand-picked good cause helping children in the developing world.

See our Grants page for further details.

Helping a good cause!

Read why an intrepid couple travelled 4,000miles from America (more than once!) to help out at the Charlbury Beer Festival.


Great entertainment!

Live music has always been a key part of the Beer Festival’s success and this year did not disappoint! Thank you to all of the band's for a wonderful show and thank you to all of you for dancing late into the night!

The Culture Club, continued to deliver on its original promise of bringing a new cultural twist to the event, with a varied programme of interesting, interactive demonstrations, readings and workshops to enthral the most cultural mind.
