Festival Fever



With spring rapidly giving way to summer, the trend for pubs to hold their own beer festivals continues un-abated. This weekend sees beer festivals at several local pubs, thereby cleverly avoiding last weeks long Bank Holiday weekend. In addition, our local football team, Tonbridge Angels are again running Angelfest, a weekend of beer, cider and live music, at their Longmead Stadium ground.

This highly successful event is now in its third year, but unfortunately I will have to give both this festival, plus the pub ones a miss, as I am off  to Norfolk for a long weekend. Still it’s not doom and gloom by a long way, as it’s a family get-together with my eldest sister over from her home in the United States.

It’s several years since I last saw her, so it will be good to meet up again. No doubt too we’ll get to visit a local pub or two, and sample some local ale. In the meantime, good luck to anyone (pub, club or other organisation), holding a beer festival this weekend.

For local readers, this weekend’s beer festivals are:

Angelfest – Longmead Stadium, Tonbridge
The Beacon – Tea Garden Lane, Rusthall, Tunbridge Wells
Little Brown Jug, Chiddingstone Causeway (opp. Penshurst station)

Apologies to any other local pub, club or other organisation that I haven’t mentioned, who are also running a beer festival this weekend.

I've no idea how you could have omitted the Saracen's Head Beer & Cider Festival - 29th to 1st June in Halsall, Lancashire.

Angelfest3 was a great success. All the beers, ciders and perry were virtually all sold out by early Sunday afternoon. Fund raising targets were more than met and the Air Ambulance, the childrens hospice as well as the Christmas flood victims have all benefited. Bands were brilliant too. Now planning Angelfest4

Pleased to learn Angelfest3 went so well, Colin. Sorry I missed it, but will look out for next year's.

If you are good at putting things in your diary angelfest4 will be held on the last weekend in may 2015.
