The Sixteenth Annual Charlbury Beer Festival will take place on Saturday 29 June 2013 at Charlbury Cricket Club (just over the road from Charlbury station), from midday till late. Apart from the fifty or so real ales on offer, there will be a range of ciders and wines, Pimm’s, good food, children’s entertainment, the World Aunt Sally Open Singles Championship, quality soft drinks, and live music.
On the day
Under 18s are admitted free. For adults there is a two-tier entrance fee: £10 for beer-drinkers (for a souvenir glass and beer/cider/Pimms tokens), and £5 for others. In return you get great entertainment and music all day. And remember... it’s all in a good cause!
Please note that dogs aren’t allowed on the cricket pitch, but there will be a dog-parking area with fresh water all day.
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.
Live music has always been a key part of the Beer Festival’s success, and this year we have a mixture of well-known local bands and singers alongside some exciting new performers. There will also be dancing by Charlbury Morris. If the weather is kind to us, we plan two stages: one out on the field (from 1 pm to about 6 pm), and then in the main marquee for the evening.
