Beer Festival - another success

2012 Logo

Like many events this year, the Beer Festival had to duck and dive around some rather unsettled weather conditions. Nonetheless, the Summer 2012 Haddenham Beer Festival was another resounding success, attracting large numbers of visitors from the village and far beyond.

The Haddenham Festivals (two per year) are organised by a charity called the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust specifically established to manage the festivals and the distribution of funds via cash grants to the worthy causes within Haddenham and surrounding areas.

Each Beer Festival is remarkable for the sheer level of planning involved — the detailed logistics are incredible, and the execution certainly reflected a well-oiled machine in operation: a masterly performance by all concerned. The large team of volunteers deserve a huge vote of thanks for all their hard work and dedication to this major fund-raising event.

Don't forget to see the photographs in our GALLERIES section, hopefully with more to follow later, once the photographers have sobered up enough to send them to the website editor!
