What’s on

Sat 29 Jun: Charlbury Beer Festival

The 2024 Charlbury Beer Festival will take place on Saturday 29 June at Charlbury Cricket Club, from noon till late. There will be around 60 real ales, a variety of craft beers, a range of ciders and perries, wine, gin, and Pimm’s; a great selection of food (including vegan options); tea, cake and soft drinks; live music throughout; the Culture Club tent with its varied programme of performances and talks; children’s entertainment and activities; and high-octane sport with the World Aunt Sally Singles Championships.

All money raised by the Beer Festival is given out to community projects, both in the Charlbury area and overseas. We have now taken our total of funds raised for good causes to around £300,000. There have been donations to over fifty local organisations, ranging from Charlbury Primary School and the town’s Pre-School, to local sports clubs, Charlbury’s Day Centre and Community Centre, and overseas projects in Africa, India, South America and elsewhere.

We must thank those generous sponsors who finance the beers and the entertainment tents, and of course, the beers themselves, plus the many hours that committee members and other volunteers put in. Cheers all round!

Charlbury Cricket Club provides a glorious setting, just across the road from Charlbury Station. There are excellent all-day (including late night) bus and train services to and from Charlbury to Oxford, Chipping Norton, Reading, Witney, Worcester and London, so you don’t even need to drive if you want to have a drink.
