Winterfest: Saturday 8th December

The organisers of Haddenham Real Ale Festival are proud to announce the success of the summer festival and the date of the upcoming 2012 Winterfest. An estimated 2,300 people defied the wet weather to take part in the annual summer festival on July 7 which raised more than £18,000 for charity.

This year's summer festival was the ninth run by the offically registered charity, namely the Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust, which has so far raised more than £100,000 to date. The charity was set up to support good causes in Haddenham and the surrounding area. If you would like to apply for a grant email haddenhambeerfestival@gmail.com

The Trust's next festival is the Winterfest on Saturday 8th December at the Village Hall.
The event also features a Christmas-themed fair and the Haddenham Mummers will be performing throughout the day.

While not on as large a scale as the trust's annual summer festival, the Winterfest is always hotly anticipated as a more intimate village event to which everyone is welcome.

Doors open at 11am with the last entry at 5pm but this may change depending on how much beer we have left. Tickets cost £6 on the door or £5 in advance from a variety of sellers.

Nicholas Moore, trust committee member, said: "We're really excited about this year's Winterfest. It's very much a village event. People have it in their diaries every year.
"We are a registered charity that raises money for good causes in Haddenham and the surrounding community.

"It should be a really fun day and we're really looking forward to seeing everybody there."

Truly something to please and delight everyone. Come and enjoy some gorgeous choral music at St...

Thanks to the amazing community response last autumn for poppies and doves for Remembrance Day, we have stored a large number of poppies that were knitted, crocheted or crafted from felt. It would be wonderful to re-use them on an annual basis.One suggestion is that we create a 'pop-up' display, which can be used each November.If you would like to be involved or if you have any ideas...
