Haddenham is to host its very own beer festival this summer.

The village’s recreation field will play host to a three-day celebration of local brews and local music, from July 3-5.

The organisers are aiming to have around 20 different beers and ciders in village pavilion, while, on the recreation ground, there will be events including live music, stalls and a barbeque.

Jim Collins, one of the organisers, said: “We are hoping that the Haddenham Beer Festival will be a village event raising money for other village events and local charities.

“If you would like to help out we’d be pleased to hear from you; maybe you have a band that would like to play or perhaps you have a marquee you could lend us, maybe your company would like to sponsor a barrel, or perhaps you would like to run a stall.”

Councillor Gareth Wilson, of Haddenham, said: “The festival has the full support of the parish council. It will be held on the recreation field and it should be a great event. We hope it will be a success.”

At its March meeting, Haddenham Parish Council unanimously backed plans for the festival and granted organisers permission to use the recreation field.
