It’s just under 6 weeks until this year’s festival kicks off on Friday 28th April. We are all working hard to make the 10th Festival the best yet.
So, it will be 10 years since we were challenged to put on a festival and slowly we have grown from that 1st festival where our objective was to have some fun and show we could do it, to now being a fully fledged charity event raising money for local good causes.
Since 2008, we have managed to donate over £34,000 to good causes locally. This has ranged from providing and resources to local schools, helping local charities and sports groups, through to donations to the Garden House Hospice and Lister Hospital.
We look forward to seeing all of you at this years festival. Get there early as the beer is guaranteed to fly off the shelves.
See you there!
The 10th One!
Come join us and celebrate our 10th Aniversary. Yep! we didn’t think we would make it either. Stick it in your diaries:
- Fri 28th April
- Sat 29th April
- Sun 30th April
Beer, music, food and fun.
See you there!
Just under a week to go and everything is starting to come together. We now have complete lists of both Foreign Beer and Cider on the website. See you Friday!
We have now finalised the real ale list for 2016 (subject to availability from the breweries). So there you have it. See you in a week and a bit!
The bands playing the beer festival are now on the website. We are delighted to bring you some new bands this year as well as some bands that have previously played and been very popular.
Two stages this year again with the main stage and the Balstock acoustic stage.
See you there!
This month the Baldock Beer Festival presented The Great Group in Baldock with a donation that will allow them to purchase outdoor games equipment and outdoor planters and planting equipment. The Great Group operates as a “not for profit” after school club at Baldock Community Centre during term times . The donation will allow them to put on a greater range of outdoor enrichment activities.
This month we made further contributions to Baldock St Mary’s Church so they can continue the restoration of the church tower.
The Baldock Beer Festival glasses have arrived and feature the theme for this year which is the Rugby World Cup!
Two sizes available pint and half pint. Don’t miss out and get here early as these are limited edition and we usually run out by Sat pm. If you want to drink out of glass then you will need to either buy one or bring your own glass. Otherwise we have plastic glasses available. In the interest of cost (and the environment) we recommend you re-use your plastic glass as many times as you can. There is a facility to rinse out the glass between drinks on your way to the bar.
Dekkle will be with us on Sunday the 3rd May as they continue their work running and delivering the Baldock Community Arts Project – this is a great opportunity to come and see some of our local artists in-action.
As the Baldock Community Arts Project progresses, the pictures from local school children and community groups have been collected and are being developed into a collage which will be hand carved to create a printing template during the Beer Festival.
It’s not to-late to participate, please come along, meet Dekkle and have a go at carving at the Baldock Beer Festival this weekend!
The Cider list is now available. 53 ciders and perrys have been gathered from the best local producers. As with the ale list there could be the odd change due to availability but there shouldn’t be too many changes. Less than a week to go so see you there!
