Here we go again

We’ll be back with you on 12th May 2018 for the 15th Wicken Beer Festival. Hasn’t that time flown by?

We’ve been through this so many times already we’re hoping you’ve all got the basics by now. But, if you’ve been on Mars here’s what you’ve got to look forward to this year.

FREE ENTRY

FREE PARKING

A LARGE RANGE OF REAL ALE, LAGER AND LOCAL CIDER

LOCAL SAUSAGES AND BURGERS

FREE LIVE MUSIC

We will be back yet again 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 local cider. They will be £3.50/pint (2 tickets) or £2.00/ half pint (1 ticket). Don’t forget to buy your tickets at the stand before coming to the bar. We will publish our Beer List closer to the day. There will obviously be plenty of Tyler’s burgers and hotdogs to soak up all those pints.

Filling our early music slot we have Gravel Road who will be playing roughly 5.30 til 7.30. Our late slot from around 9 to 11.30 is still to be confirmed. New to us this year we also have Tony Chouler entertaining you between our main acts. That’s plenty of great music so make sure you’ve got your (sensible) dancing shoes on.

As this is a family friendly event, we encourage you to bring the kiddies and explore the whole recreation ground including the new outdoor gym equipment and Zip wire. However, please be careful with these later on in the evening. Feel free to also bring balls, bats and rackets and make the most of what previous Beer Festivals have raised funds for. However, please don’t bring the dog.

This year we really need your help as over the years our regular volunteers have moved away or are now a little to old to be helping for the whole day. We need volunteers to help us by serving pints, flipping burgers and selling tickets. If you can spare some time please get in touch via Facebook or email wickenbeerfest@gmail.com

Speaking of volunteering, if you’ve got a spare hour on Thursday 10th May come and lend a hand putting up the marquees from 6pm.

Please do say hello and introduce yourselves, it’s good to talk.

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

The countdown is on

Cheers!

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

Cheers!
