The Winterfest (Haddenham's Winter Beer Festival) occupied the Village Hall Complex on Saturday 8th December.
This major fundraising event not only provided the many visitors with a chance to taste delicious winter ales, and a range of traditional ciders and fruity mulled wine, they were also tempted with good food and entertained with a portfolio of excellent music from jazz to rock.
Meanwhile, the main hall housed a selection of over 25 seasonal market stalls, providing a wide range of goods and produce from the local area.
Oh, and the Haddenham Mummers made a nuisance of themselves! ;-

More recently, Nick Moore from the Beer Festival Committee added this:
The latest Haddenham Winterfest was a great success with around 800 visitors helping to contribute to more than £6,000 raised for charity.
The bands entertaining the crowds throughout the day were the Ian English Jazz Band, The Vibes and the talented Nick Stephenson
As always we have a long list of people to thank. We rely on a large number of enthusiastic volunteers who make this fantastic day possible.
Thanks to Haddenham Scout and Guides and the village hall for hosting us and once again the Masons who did a fantastic job with the charity barbecue.
Now it's only six months until the summer festival. We look forward to seeing you there.
