Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the safety requirements for social distancing we have reluctantly decided that we will not be running the October Festival. Whilst we are disappointed in taking this decision we believe it is the correct one to ensure the safekeeping of our Volunteers and Festival attendees. We will update this website from time to time to ensure people are up to speed with our intentions; which, at this point in time, are to run our next Festival during April next year. So, until we see you then, take care of yourselves and your loved ones, and try, where possible, to take care of others.
23rd Wickham Charity Beer Festival
Hi everyone. A quick thanks to all of you who attended our last Charity Beer Festival during October last year and to our Sponsors and Suppliers. It was a great success despite the weather. Also a big thank you for your generosity at the event investing your hard earned cash in the raffles; altogether the Beer Festival has been able to give in excess of £5,000 to charity from the last event. This means that since we started, back in 2008, we have, with your help, raised over £135,000 for both local and national charities. This excludes the additional income for charity made by the Wickham Community Centre and by Meon Valley Lions. Our next event is early April and, as normal, is a two-day event starting Friday evening 3th April for one session at 19:00 to 23:00 and on Saturday afternoon from 11:00 to 16:00 and the evening from 18:00 to 23:00 on the 4th April for two sessions; we look forward to seeing you all there. Mike, Mark, Gary and the Wickham Beer Festival Team
We’re donating to:
Friday Evening Session – 19:00 to 23:00
Saturday Afternoon Session – 11:00 to 16:00
Saturday Evening Session – 18:00 to 23:00

We may not have had the ‘real thing’ but some of our supporters enjoyed their virtual fest; many thanks for your input Andy and look forward to seeing you all in October
For many years we have enjoyed many laughs and lots of banter at the Wickham Beer Festivals. Usually about 10 – 15 of us, get together, But not this time! This year one of our group Nigel still wanted to get together, so unbeknownst to us he ordered a few bottle packs from Bowman Brewery, Swift one, Trebuchet & Wallops Wood. then he organised for some of us old buggers and a relatively newbie get together on Zoom, Thanks Nige, you Sir are a legend.
