Easter Beer Festival 2024

Recounting the Highlights of Our Easter Beer Festival Extravaganza!

Phew, what a weekend that was! As we sit down to reflect on the whirlwind of fun and frolics that was our Easter Beer Festival, we can't help but chuckle and smile thinking about all that went on.

Let's rewind to the days leading up to the festival, shall we? Picture this: rain clouds looming ominously overhead, weather forecast predicting doom and gloom. Yep, we were sweating bullets as we scrambled to prepare for a soggy affair. But you know what they say about the best-laid plans... they often involve a fair bit of rain cover..

Thankfully, our worries were soon washed away as the festivities kicked off with a bang on Wednesday night for our exclusive members. As Thursday rolled around, the clouds parted, and the sun peeked through, giving us a glimmer of hope that maybe, just maybe, luck was on our side.

Ah, but fate had other plans in store for us. Just when we thought we had weathered the storm, we arrived on Friday morning to find the road outside our gates closed tighter than a jar of Marmite. A fire on a local industrial estate had the police playing traffic cop, and it seemed like the universe was conspiring against us. And as if that wasn't enough, a multi-car collision decided to join the party, closing off another route. Talk about a comedy of obstacles!

But fear not, for where there's a will, there's a way (and perhaps a pint or two to help smooth things over)! After some swift negotiations with the powers that be, we managed to navigate our way through the chaos and fling open our gates to the eager crowds. And lo and behold, they came flocking in, undeterred by roadblocks or traffic snarls.

Laughs, Cheers, Beers, Music & Food!

From there on out, it was smooth sailing (or should we say, smooth pouring?). The atmosphere was electric, the beers were flowing, and the laughter was infectious. We couldn't have asked for a better turnout or a more spirited bunch of beer-lovers and festival-goers.

Our beer tent was a hive of activity, with punters queuing up for a taste of the finest brews from local breweries - quite a few I hear got a taste of the full house! The musicians we had on stage were nothing short of sensational, creating a lively atmosphere that had everyone tapping their toes and singing along. And let's not forget about the exceptional food vans – who, each day, served up mouthwatering treats to keep hunger at bay.

On Saturday, we were delighted by the arrival of a troupe of Morris dancers. With bells jingling and sticks clacking, they brought a touch of old-world charm to our modern-day shindig. Watching them weave and whirl with grace and gusto was a true delight, and we couldn't help but join in the fun with a few clumsy twirls of our own.

Until we Meet again

As the sun set on our final day, we couldn't help but feel a twinge of sadness that it was all coming to an end. But as they say, all good things must come to a close – at least until next time! So here's to the memories we've made, the friendships we've forged, and the pints we've raised in celebration.

And guess what? We're not done yet! We're already gearing up for our Summer Festival in June, and we'd love nothing more than to see all your smiling faces once again. So mark your calendars, spread the word, and let's make some more memories together.

Until next time, cheers to good beer, good company, and the occasional unexpected detour! Most importantly, cheers to you, our wonderful festival-goers for making this Easter Beer Festival one for the ages!
