It’s time for a Press Release

Below is our Press Release for this year.

Please share our Facebook page and tell your friends, there’s only 3 weeks to go…..

Wicken Beer Festival 2015
Date: 16 May 2015
Time: 16:00 – 00:00
Location: Wicken Recreation Ground, CB7 5XZ

Now in it’s 11th year of running, Wicken Beer Festival is better than ever. An enthusiastic bunch of villagers and the Recreation Ground Commitee kicked the event off in2004, aiming to raise funds to improve the local Recreation Ground in the village. In the time since, they have managed to raise over £30,000 with all proceeds helping towards the ongoing development of the MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) and the play areas. Without the help of all the people who give their time and energy to make this happen there simply wouldn’t be these facilities within the village.

This year we are at it again, kicking off the event at 4pm on Saturday 16th May. We will have an excellent variety of beers from around the UK as well as locally produced and award winning Pickled Pig Cider from Stretham and Spinney Abbey Cider from Wicken. When you get hungry we will be serving up Wicken’s own Tylers sausages and burgers, and we would recommend adding a dollop of Bob’s Special Sauce. Soft drinks and crisps will also be available.

A different line up of local bands this year completes the Beer Festival. – Our first new band of the night is True Pacific. They are a 3 piece alternative rock band from March starting their set from around 17:00. The band are made up of Christian Smith, Josh Middleton and Tristan Hall.

The 142’s Band will be playing the late slot from around 20:00. They are a 3 piece Rock band consisting of Ely based members Drew (Guitar), Bernie (Bass) and Andy (Drums) and their covers include songs made famous by Elvis, the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zep, Bryan Adams, Guns n Roses, Primal Scream, Oasis, Franz Ferdinand and Kaiser Chiefs to name a few.

Entry and parking are free at our family friendly fundraising event. In case of rain we have marquees in which to shelter, but with so much space there is plenty of room for people to bring their own gazebo’s and chairs if they wish. We encourage you to bring some balls and bats for the kids and maybe a picnic blanket for yourself, but could we ask you politely to refrain from bringing any dogs.

Please visit our website at for further information. Come rain or shine, we look forward to seeing you there.
