Thank you to everyone who applied for grants this year. Applications are now closed and the committee has made decisions above where the funding will go. It has to be our most oversubscribed year yet, so we are very sorry to those who have not been allocated funds.
We continue to give 100% of our profits away as grants. No one gets paid for doing Charlbury Beer Festival.
In 1997, 13 Charlburians put on a beer festival to raise money for the local primary school. Back then they sold 1,000 pints in a venue limited to 180 visitors.
In 2023, two an a half decades later, we celebrated our 25th festival. We had over 6,000 pints of ale, craft beer, and cider. We saw over 2,000 people come through our gates.
It was an unmissable day, suitable for all the family. We're sorry we have to wait until June 2024 for the next one!
Charlbury Beer Festival is run to raise money for good causes. We need the help of our sponsors to make that possible. If you'd like to be part of a the UK's biggest one day independent beer festival, raising money for great causes, please visit our sponsors page.
