23rd Wickham Charity Beer Festival
Saturday 9th October
Hi everyone. I have left my following message generally as written for the April 2020 Festival. It has been a long time coming but we are back and we hope to continue as before.
A quick thanks to all of you who attended our last Charity Beer Festival (it seems so long ago now) and to our Sponsors and Suppliers. 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 October and, as normal, is a one-day event on Saturday 9th October starting with the morning session from 11:00 to 16:00 followed by the evening session from 18:00 to 23:00; we look forward to seeing you all there. Mike, Gary and the Wickham Beer Festival Team

Memories of April 2020
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.
