On behalf of Haddenham Beer festival:

In these tough times we all need something to look forward to, and so many people have begun asking if Haddenham Summerfest will be going ahead this year.

The Beer Festival Trustees and Committee have been carefully monitoring the ongoing situation around events and are very pleased to announce that our current intention is to go ahead and hold Summerfest 2021.

As always, the safety and wellbeing of our attendees, staff and volunteers remains paramount so while this decision has been taken with careful consideration to the current government roadmap, we will be reviewing the situation on an ongoing basis to ensure we feel confident that we can hold the event in a fully safe and compliant manner.

Essentially, for Summerfest to be viable and appropriate, the current schedule of removing all restrictions around social distancing and numbers of people meeting must be met.

Should the situation not proceed as intended, and any such restrictions remain in place, we would not be able to go ahead and hold Summerfest this year.

To maximise the chance of the required conditions being met and give people time to adapt to our return to normal times, we have taken the decision to move the festival from our usual date of the first weekend of July back a couple of weeks, to Saturday 17th July

We may have to make some modifications to the format and staging of the event to keep everyone as safe as possible and we will advise on these in due course.

We can't wait to see everyone so please put the date in your diary, stay safe, and more details about the event itself will follow over the next few months.
