Eathorpe Beer Festival, February 17-19 2017

Building on our success in the past few years, once more you’ll be able to taste a range of fresh and interesting beers in the delightful surroundings of Eathorpe Village Hall.  This year the beer will come from one of the traditional centres of English beer – Burton-on-Trent and nearby South Derbyshire.  Once the home of Bass and other big names this area now hosts a vibrant collection of small breweries that have sprung up in recent years.

As in previous years, the beer will be chosen by an intrepid party of experienced tasters, ready to put their palates and livers at the service of the Eathorpe community and their guests. As usual we’ll have a good range of wine, soft drink and food available and we continue to welcome families. We are still putting together the entertainment programme but we hope once again to have a lively band after 9pm on Saturday night, alongside calmer acoustic music and old favourites, like (we hope) the Coventry Mummers, at other times.

The event will be open 5.30-11.00 on Friday and 1pm to 11.00 on Saturday.   On Sunday lunchtime, we plan to be offering bargain prices on whatever we have left. Entry will be free to all sessions.  Bring your family and friends to make a weekend of it.

All offers of help welcome –  from potential performers keen to show off their talents to our friendly audience as well as from those eager to get behind the bar or assist in other ways.  Just phone David Wray on 632830 or Maggy Smith on 632564.
