Hook Norton Festival of Fine Ales

Hook Norton Festival of Fine Ales

On Saturday 20th July 2013, the Hook Norton Festival of Fine Ales will be taking place again in the beautiful and historic village. Since its inception 19 years ago, the Festival has raised in excess of £200,000 for national and local charities with the help of the Hook Norton Brewery and other brewers from all parts of the UK who donate beer free of charge.

The main charity supported is Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research which receives around half of the money raised to directly support long term research work at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. The other half of monies raised is divided among many worthy causes.

This year the festival will be taking place from 12 noon until around 11pm: not only will the festival goers be able to enjoy a tasty pint of Hooky whilst listening to the array of live music acts that will be playing throughout the day, they’ll also be a range of delicious food options available too, making it an event the whole family will enjoy.

Location: The festival will be again taking place in Hook Norton, Oxfordshire, which is situated between Chipping Norton (gateway to the Cotswolds) and Banbury, just north of the A361. Signs in the village will direct to the site. Parking and camping will be in the same field.

Entry fee: £3.00

Further details: A Festival starter pack is available on entry priced £10 (includes a glass + 4 half pint tokens, a programme and a pencil)

Prices: All beer is priced at £1.50 per half pint. One token = £1.50

Campers: All campers (in tents or camper vans) will be asked for a voluntary donation of £5-£10 to cover the costs of providing toilets in the camping area.

Entry packs: For those wishing to purchase a voucher for an entry pack (priced at £10) they are available from info@hookybeerfest.co.uk

Please note: No glass (bottles or glasses) or cans will be allowed on site. This is a safety issue as the field is normally used to graze livestock. Any glass or metal left in the field could cause injury to the cattle.

 Hook Norton Brewery hopes to see you there!
