Chippenham Beer & Cider festival 2015

After another successful festival, one of my first duties as the new beer festival organiser is to give thanks to the committee for helping in the organisation, to the volunteers who give up their free time to help serve or assist, to the caterers for providing delicious food, to the Beat Cats for a cracking Saturday night set, and to the Olympiad for their support and smashing staff without who the festival couldn't take place. Finally a great big thank you to everyone who attended (over 1800 this year) making the festival the happy, safe, congenial place to be over the weekend.


Beer of the festival: Dibber from Shed Ales, Well Done Gordon

Cider of the festival: Spring Surprise from Handmade Cider, Well Done Dennis

Wonderful to see two local producers being recognized for their efforts.


I look forward to seeing you next year on the 22nd & 23rd April, 2016, which will be our 25th Festival.
