The world famous 'Summerfest' Beer Festival will soon be upon us, featuring the vast range of attractions that have made this such a memorable event.
This year there will be no less than 150 barrels of real ale including full ranges from some local microbreweries as well as plenty from across the country. There'll also be a range of new style keg beers and lagers plus 40 ciders, featuring fruit-infused and novel flavours as well as the traditional sweet, medium and dry styles.
And if you are not into beer or cider then come and try one of the wonderful gin-based cocktails and punches, Pimms, Prosecco or wine — there will be plenty to choose from.
Plus, of course, an impressive range of non-alcoholic refreshments for everyone to enjoy.
There'll be an incredible line-up of 14 live bands playing through the day — from 11.00am right through until 9.00pm when the event finishes. (NB: Entry closes at 6.00pm)
Visitors can also enjoy a massive variety of food and other entertainment — even better than last year!
With lots of activities for children too, this all adds up to a wonderful family-friendly event.
Entrance is just £10.00 online or at the door. But why not purchase your tickets and drinks vouchers online, in advance? Tickets purchased this way come with £3 worth of free drinks vouchers and will help you avoid the queues!
If you wait until the day, entry is still £10 but doesn't include a free drinks voucher.
You can purchase your tickets and vouchers here
Also available online only are 'bring a friend packages' for £18 which saves another £2 (and also includes £3 worth of vouchers each)
Please note that vouchers are needed to purchase beer, food and other drinks; once again money can be saved by purchasing these in advance — £45 worth for £42.50 and £90 worth for £82.50 (perfect for those coming along with a group).
All vouchers will be available for collection on the door.
Summerfest takes place in the grounds of Haddenham Community Junior School on Woodways in Haddenham HP17 8DS
So come along and enjoy the summer fun — we'll see you there!
