Beer & Cider Fest - Thanks

Chippenham Beer & Cider festival 2016


What a great time was had at our 25th festival with a record breaking attendance and a host of excellent beers and ciders. 
We had visits from David and Gillian Powell, our Mayor and Mayoress, Chippenham MP Michelle Donelan and the MEP
for the South West Julia Reid who volunteered to serve behind the bar.  Thank you one and all.  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 band for entertaining us on Saturday night, 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 (over 1900 this year) who make the festival the happy, safe,
congenial place to be over the festival weekend.

Because of the later Easter celebration next year we will be earlier than usual, we look forward to seeing you on
March 31st and April 1st 2017.

Beer of the festival: Mexi-Cocoa choc-vanilla stout from The Rebel Brewing Co.
Cider of the festival: Spring Surprise from Handmade Cider,
