Bonfire Night 2017
Beer Festival 2017
Believe it or not, the 5th Beer Fest is coming up over the weekend of 15th-16th September. Over the past four years it’s evolved into the Must Go to Event of the Year.
There is something for everyone as Music Lovers, Foodies, Party Goers and, of course, Real Ale fans join forces to help the Community Association and PTA raise funds to reinvest into facilities at the School and Community Centre. Our aim as always is to sell out of Draught Beer as every pint left in the barrel is money wasted and literally poured down the Drain. To have any left is self –defeating. Nevertheless, this year we will be introducing an innovative approach to try and ensure that the most popular beers are still on tap at the end but of course we can’t guarantee it. We look forward to being drunk dry!
As usual, a Beer Fest ticket is valid for the whole 2 day event; buy it in advance at the Post office and other outlets and you’ll save money. It will cost more ‘on the door’. It’s a great 2 days and as regulars, with a bit of stamina know – the Beer Fest is really 3 events in 1.
Friday night is ‘Taste the Ale’ night; all the specially selected beers will be on sale and available along with a range of other drinks, food and a top class band on stage. Doors open at 6pm until 11pm
Saturday afternoon is the very popular ‘Family Fest Time’; many say this is the best time as most ales will still be ‘on’ and there is plenty of entertainment for all the family. It’s an ideal afternoon out for family, friends and neighbour to come together and have a bit of fun whilst enjoying more live entertainment. Doors open at 1.30. A word of warning – come early to get the best seats.
As the light fades we rev up again on Saturday evening with a full blown Party Band ensuring that the Best Fest 2017 ‘Party Time’ finishes on a high at 10pm.
The event management team is drawn from The CA and PTA. They having been meeting throughout the year to plan a cracking event for everyone. However, they could do with a bit of help over the Beer Fest weekend; erecting the Marquees on Thursday evening from 5pm; setting up the event on Friday from 9.15am; and dismantling the marquees and restoring the Community Centre for normal business on Sunday morning from 9am. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also if you could help during the event, maybe just by having a break from drinking, and pulling pints or doing a myriad of other jobs then please contact any of the Beer Fest team members (see the CA Notice Board) or simply email www.mfhcc.com/contact-us-booking/
Go on don’t be shy! Give it a go.
