Charlbury Beer Festival

Without the magnificent fundraising by the Beer Festival, the school would simply be a much less stimulating environment for the children.

Headteacher Jane Holt


Over £270,000 of funds donated for good causes!

Charlbury Beer Festival was set up in 1998 to raise money for Charlbury Primary School. As we grew, year on year, we began to fund other good causes in the community as well.

In 2009 we set up Charlbury & Overseas Community Projects Ltd, a registered charity, allocating a proportion of our funds each year to a handpicked organisation helping children in the developing world.

From small beginnings, we now raise £20,000 a year to distribute to good causes. We are especially pleased to support good causes relating to youth activities in the town. Please note that we cannot fund projects retrospectively.


Please note, all our funds for 2023 have been allocated and we will not be awarding any more grants until after the 2024 event. Please check back in September 2024 for updates.
