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.
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!
- Friday 29th April: 5pm – 11pm
- Saturday 30th April: 12pm – 11pm
- Sunday 1st May: 12pm – 8pm
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!
We have pretty much sorted out bands for this years festival although there can always be late changes to line ups. A big thanks to all bands who approached us about performing at this years festival, but who we were unable to include in this years line up.
Balstock will be providing additional music in the acoustic tent. As always come and support these acts as well. They represent just some of the great musical talent in the area and when you are there chuck some money in the Balstock buckets it is directly helping to fund this years Balstock!
We have picked the beers and ciders though until orders are confirmed we cannot let you know what they are!
Lastly, but not least we have applied to be a Charitable Incorporated Organisation this year and we hope to have Charitable status ASAP. We will keep you posted as to progress!
Only a few weeks to go now so see you soon!
