The Charlbury Beer Festival will pour its 10,000th gallon of beer at this year’s non-profit event, back after a two-year Covid enforced break and hope to welcome 3’000 visitors.
The one-day beer festival was started back in 1998 by a collection of school dads, and the annual event has so far raised over £250,000 for charity. This includes fifty local organisations, including the local Primary School and Pre-School, local sports clubs, Charlbury’s Day Centre and Community Centre, and twelve overseas projects in Africa, India and South America.
The event will see around 50 real ales, a variety of craft beers, a range of ciders and perries, wine, gin, and Pimm’s and a great selection of food.
There is also entertainment with live music, the Culture Tent with its varied programme of performances and talks, children’s entertainment, and the 10th World Aunt Sally Singles Championships.
The Aunt Sally event requires pre-registration and is an individual person knock out competition involving throwing a stick at a target much like pétanque. The current champion is Phil Adams of Abingdon.
The Charlbury Cricket Club is across the road from Charlbury Station, with all-day bus and train services to and from Charlbury to Oxford, Chipping Norton, Reading, Witney, Worcester and London.
Please note, the rules of the cricket club do not allow dogs (except guide dogs) on the site.
Saturday 25 June from 12 noon to 9pm.
