This year's Summerfest is now upon us, and we hope you're as excited as we are.

Taking place place on the customary grounds of Haddenham County Junior School (see location map here) the event on Saturday 6th July is set to be our biggest yet.

Great food, ales, lagers, ciders, wine and Pimm's will all be served and there'll be live music and dancing from opening to close and loads of entertainment for the kids.

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 £145,000 has been raised.

Last year's Summerfest, as it is known, was yet another resounding success despite the poor weather — due to an experimental new layout which provided a lot of marquees and tent space to help punters stay dry.

With this in mind we have upgraded the plans with yet further provision for wet weather.

So for the first time ever this year's Summerfest will see all of the ale and beer served from a main beer tent at the rear of the school. This will also help avoid the recurring queuing issues which have sometimes occurred in previous years.

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. Please email haddenhambeerfestival@gmail.com

We're hoping for good weather as always but don't be put off if it's raining as we are confident that we will be able to keep you comfortably dry whilst you enjoy the event.

So please come along and enjoy the day!
