And we’re back

Hello again.

Have you missed us?

Sorry about the delay this year with updates but we’re hoping you’ve all got the basics by now.  We will be back in under 2 weeks with more beer, more cider, more BBQ and more great music.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed for great weather too.

As usual we will be pouring 22 different ales, including a Real Lager and 3 Spinney Abbey ciders – Monk and Disorderly, Virgin on the Ridiculous and Nun Beehaving Badly.  So far, we are unsure if we will have any Pickled Pigs ***sobs***.  This year they will be £3/pint (2 tickets) or £1.50/ half pint (1 ticket).  Don’t forget to buy your tickets at the stand before coming to the bar.  We will let you know what beer we’re getting closer to the day.  There will be plenty of Tyler’s burgers and hotdogs to soak up all those pints.


Filling our early music slot we have Akimbo who will be playing roughly 5 til 7.30pm.  They’re a great, Cambridgeshire based band who will be doing some Classic Rock and Pop covers.  The Dinosaurs, a Newmarket based band will be doing our late slot from around 9 to 11.30.  Plenty of great music so make sure you’ve got your (sensible) dancing shoes on.

This year we will have some new faces volunteering their time to help our cause by serving pints, flipping burgers and selling tickets.  Please do say hello and introduce yourselves, it’s good to talk.  Speaking of volunteering, if you’ve got a spare hour on Thursday 11th May come and lend a hand putting up the marquees from 6pm.

As this is a family friendly event, we encourage you to bring the kiddies and explore the whole recreation ground including the “teenage zone”, play equipment, MUGGA and huge playing field and wood.  Bring balls, bats and rackets and make the most of what previous Beer Festivals have provided.  However, please don’t bring the dog.

Car parking is provided as usual in the field on Lower Road – follow the signs.

The countdown is on

10 days to go
