Chippenham Beer & Cider Festival 2017

Another successful Chippenham Beer and Cider Festival. Festival goers enjoyed a great varied selection of real ales and cider and enjoyed music from Mrs Peverill's 

Favourites at the Saturday lunch time session and we were swinging to the beat of Blondie & Ska on Saturday night.

Beers of The Festival:
1st  Red IPA from the Chippenham Brewery
2nd Plum Porter from Titanic
3rd Dark Ruby from Sarah Hughes

nice to see the dark ales doing well.

Ciders of the Festival 

1st Rhubarb - Mates
2nd Press Head - Hand Made
3rd Magpie - Mates.

Festival goers donated just short of £900 to local charities...Well Done.

I would also like 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 bands for entertainig us at the Saturday sessions. To John Williams Heating for their sponsorship and to the Olympiad for their support and smashing staff without whom the festival couldn't take place.

Finally, a great big thank you to our Festival attendees who make the festival the happy, safe, congenial place to be over the festival weekend.
