Shakespeare and all things beer.

To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, the 2016 Charlbury Beer Festival will be celebrating his life and works with a 'Shakespearean' theme. Watch this space for updates. Ale's well that ends well!

A good cause

The Charlbury Beer Festival exists solely to raise money for good causes.

Charlbury Primary School has been our biggest beneficiary, but we support a wide range of community groups and projects in the Charlbury area and beyond. More recently we have allocated a proportion of our funds each year to a hand-picked good cause helping children in the developing world.

See our Grants page for further details.

Helping a good cause!

Read why an intrepid couple travelled 4,000miles from America (more than once!) to help out at the Charlbury Beer Festival.


Great entertainment!

Live music has always been a key part of the Beer Festival’s success and this year did not disappoint! Every band was fabulous and the dancing (until late in the night) was even better!

The Culture Club, continued to deliver on its original promise of bringing a new cultural twist to the event. What an afternoon's entertainment we had - from talks to interactive workshops, the history of ancient maps to the history of beer, something for everyone in a what proved to be a packed out marquee.
