The 14th Cheltenham Craft Beer and Cider Festival

Raise a Glass of Beer or Cider for Cheltenham Samaritans

Beer and Cider drinkers will be raising their glasses and raising money for charity at the 14th Cheltenham Craft Beer and Cider Festival which will be taking place on Saturday 8th June at the Old Patesians Club, Everest Road, Leckhampton from 12 noon until 11pm.

glosinfo-stage-cheltenham-beer-and-cider-festival are really proud to be sponsoring the stage at Cheltenham Craft Beer and Cider Festival Saturday 8th June with all the profits going to the Samaritans.

The event is organised by the Friends of Cheltenham Samaritans to raise much needed funds to help keep the local branch of the Samaritans in financial good health. Gary Newman, Chair of the Friends commented: “We have raised over £100,000 from this festival in the last 13 years and we are aiming to add significantly to that sum this year. The festival has evolved significantly in recent years with modern craft beers, food trucks and a range of fantastic music on our marquee stage giving us a point of difference over other local beer festivals. It is still very much a family friendly event, with children’s activities throughout the afternoon.” Gary also added “One of the ways we manage to raise so much money is by asking local companies to sponsor one of more barrels of beer for £50 a time – they not only get their logo associated with their selected beer(s) but they also get a couple of complimentary tickets for the festival.”

The event has been described by one punter as ‘surely one of the most chilled out, family friendly beer festivals in the country’. This year’s line-up will include over 40 keg and cask beers from renowned local breweries such as DEYA, Arbor Ales, Good Chemistry and Purity as well as some exciting beers from elsewhere in the UK and overseas. There will also be a wide selection of Ciders and Perry and even a Prosecco Bar. Advance tickets cost £8 (before 25th May - £12.00 afterwards) which include a souvenir glass and event brochure and are available from Favourite Beers, 105 Hewlett Road, Cheltenham. Tel. 220485 (cash only) or online via the Eventbrite ticketing website.

In 2019, the current Friends group celebrate their 40th year of raising funds for the Cheltenham Branch with some of the original committee members from 1979 still active. The Beer Festival is their primary fundraising event of the year having replaced the very successful ‘Dragons on The Lake’ dragon boat racing events that they organised at Pittville Park. The group’s ethos since they were first formed has always been ‘have fun fundraising’ – something they adhere to especially well with this wonderful event.
