Raising a glass for Bewdley beer festival
THE 15th Bewdley Beer Festival will take place at the recently-refurbished St George’s Hall.
Beer fanatics will be able to enjoy the annual event from 6pm until 11pm today. It will continue tomorrow and Saturday from 11am until 11pm on both days.
On Sunday, it opens from noon and continues until the barrels run dry.
Drinks will include a cherry beer from Bewdley Brewery, following on a theme from the town’s recent cherry festival, hazelnut coffee porter from Saltaire, Trink from Penzance – which was the first to sell out at last year’s events – and Old Hooky from Hook Norton. There will also be ciders, perry and fruit wine, as well as entertainment from musicians such as John Townley, rootsy singer songwriter Dave Onions and Gypsy-jazz band Strumpit.
Anne Wilkins, one of the orgainsers, said: “I am expecting this Bewdley Beer Festival to be bigger than normal because I am hoping people will come and see what a fantastic renovation to the hall there has been.
“We have a cafe next to us and the hall is looking tremendous, so we are hoping everyone will come and have a look at it. All of the organisers are looking forward to the event.”
The Load Street hall underwent an £800,000 revamp in a project to create a multi-purpose hub for the town. It re-opened earlier this month, with the Bewdley Horticultural Society holding its annual show.
Members of St George’s Hall Venue Management (SGHVM), who oversaw the development, put the final touches to the facility, kitting it out with furniture.
