The seventh Haddenham Winterfest was held in Banks Park on Saturday 14th December, and proved to be one of the best yet!

Partly down to a curious double booking at the village hall (one might have anticipated that such a significant event as the Haddenham Beer Festival would have been given priority — but the workings of the village hall committee can leave many local residents scratching their heads with incredulity, on occasions) the famous local fundraiser was held entirely in one enormous marquee. And what a wonderful decision that proved to be.

The single venue event combined live musical entertainment with a huge range of choice refreshments, from real ales and premium beers to specialist ciders and mulled wine. As well as space to have a quiet chat with friends, the marquee also featured stalls displaying the products and services of local charities and organisations.

Meanwhile, just a few steps from the marquee, visitors could choose from a tempting range of foods and non-alcoholic refreshments to please every taste.

Another hearty vote of thanks goes to the Beer Festival Committee, to their large team of willing helpers, and to the musicians and stall-holders for their work in bringing all this together — not just a logistical triumph but a truly special occasion in the annual Haddenham calendar.

For further details of the funds raised, and the charities and organisations that will subsequently benefit, please visit the Beer Festival website.
