Well, here we are, 2021, and we’re still battling COVID-19. Hopefully, with the latest vaccines being administered we can look forward to a better year than 2020 where social interaction is more acceptable.
That said, unfortunately we will not be running the April Festival as we believe there will not be adequate time following the end of the latest ‘lock-down’ to finalise arrangements and also we are concerned it would be too soon to be sure that we can run it without fear of adding to infections.
That said we are hopeful that we will be running one sometime later in the year.
We will continue updating you all on this website as well as via FaceBook etc.
THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE
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.
