Hook Norton Festival of Fine Ales

Saturday 15th July 2023 (12 noon to 11.00pm)

We are happy to confirm that the Hook Norton Festival of Fine Ales will go ahead as planned tomorrow. Over 100 beers and ciders are racked and awaiting you! Given the forecast high winds we are though, asking that you do not bring a gazebo to the Festival site as it may be a hazard for yourself and others if it blows away. If the forecast changes we will advise of any changes in advice. See you all tomorrow! Cheers. The HNFFA Committee.

This year’s festival is full size but we have changed the location so it will take place behind the brewery. It will give us, and you, the opportunity to get together, have a drink and raise money for national and local charities and organisations that have all been hit hard by the pandemic, often when they have been needed most. Details are still being worked out so watch this space.

Tickets are available at The Village Shop and the Brewery Visitor Centre and online (https://ticket247.co.uk/Event/155030).

Here are the types of ticket;

  • the full entry pack £15 (polycarbonate glass, three ½ pint beer tickets, beer list);
  • entry only £7.50 – you will be able to use the wine bar and purchase drinks from other vendors that are not available in the beer tent.
  • Junior entry – free entry for under 18 year olds.
  • festival glass £6

Tickets will also be available on the gate on the day.

You all contribute towards making the day a success. All the money, less costs, raised in this event goes to charity. Our main charity is Blood Cancer UK, formerly known as Bloodwise, and prior to that, as Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, which receives just over half of what we raise and the remainder is distributed amongst local groups and charities that contribute to the collective wellbeing in our local area. Since the first festival in 1994 we have raised over £379,000 for charity! Last year we raised an amazing £17,500. With your help, we hope to raise more funds to distribute later this year.

If previous years have inspired you to get involved, contact us at info@hookybeerfest.co.uk. Any help before, during or in the aftermath is greatly appreciated!
