WE LOOK TO SUPPORT LOCAL CHARITIES AND GOOD CAUSES

In 2022 alone over £13,000 was donated to local good causes including the cathedral and local charities who supported the festival.

In the past proceeds from the Beer & Cider Festival have benefited many charities with over £100,000 having been donated. This year, alongside St. Edmundsbury Cathedral, other beneficiaries included St Nicholas Hospice; smaller local charities and other worthwhile causes were also invited to apply for support.

HELP MAKE THE FUN HAPPEN

The festival was organised, staffed and run entirely by volunteers. We had over 100 volunteers who undertook a variety of tasks –from cellar work to selling tickets, serving at the bar to washing glasses and much more in between – to make the magic happen.

We’d like to thank all of the volunteers from this years festival. To find out more CLICK HERE.
