This year's Summerfest Beer Festival is nearly here, and we hope you're looking forward to this key summer event as much as we are.
The festival is taking place in the grounds of Haddenham Community Junior School on Saturday 5th July, and is set to be the biggest and boldest yet. The gates open at 11.00am and the last entry is at 5.30pm, with festivities continuing until 9.00pm.
Great ales, lagers, ciders, wine and Pimm's will all be served and there'll be live music and dancing from opening to close plus loads of entertainment for the kids. There will also be a wide choice of non-alcoholic refreshments and delicious food and snacks to suit all tastes and preferences.
The event, which is organised by registered charity Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust, raises money for good causes in the village and surrounding area. To date more than £141,000 has been raised, and trustees hope to add significantly to this total as a result of the 2014 Summerfest.
Last year's Summerfest was a stunning day, and the beautiful sunshine attracted a record attendance. We all hope for another day like that this year, of course — but just in case, we always make provision for wet weather. So whatever the good old British climate throws up, a fantastic fun-filled event is assured.
Entrance on the Day will be £6, or advance tickets can be purchased for £5 from Blooming Fruity, Haileys Hairdressing, Little Italy, Kings Head, Rose and Thistle, Rising Sun , Green Dragon, Parminters, Seven Stars Dinton, Cross Keys Thame and Thame Town Hall; or in person from Kirsty Morris (email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or Peter Summerskill (email: email@example.com).
As always the beer festival is utterly reliant on the help and support of volunteers. If you would like to lend your assistance, whether it's helping set up on the day, serving at the bar or clearing away the day after, we're desperate to hear from you.
