Chippenham Beer Festival 2014

Thank you to the 1,900 customers who came and supported the 23rd CAMRA Chippenham Real Ale, cider and perry festival held at the Olympiad. Not only were we blessed with wonderful weather, but everyone demonstrated that a festival such as ours becomes a real success when everyone comes to enjoy these natural drinks at their finest. It is also wonderful to see everyone disperse at the end of each session, peacefully: a real credit to our customers.   I would also like to thank the volunteers who made this festival possible along with the staff at the Olympiad who remain wonderful at assisting us whenever we need it. Please support the wonderful small breweries and cider producers and support your local pub, particularly if they stock this fine stuff.

Cheers,
Gareth MacDonald
Chairman, Chippenham Beer Festival Committee NWWilts CAMRA
