The 12th Annual Forever Bury Beer & Cider Festival is fast approaching, May 11th – 13th, with the doors opening at 11.00aach day and thanks to Logistics Sponsors, Bibby Distribution, beers and ciders have been arriving at Gigg Lane from all over the country. In total, it is hoped there will be 55 real ales and 18 ciders all at just £2.50 a pint – all the details are on the website….. www.fb-beerfestivals.co.uk .
Organisers are optimistic that this will be the biggest and best Festival to date but that greatly depends on the local populace getting down to support the event which has once again linked up with The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity as its chosen charity. With the club managing to retain its league one status it’s hoped many fans will come down to celebrate the end of the season. We’ve had a few enquiries about parking arrangements for camper vans and, as usual, we’ll be looking forward to seeing who is the furthest visitor from overseas.
Volunteers from the charity will be running a crèche during the Saturday afternoon session to enable anyone with young children to come along and support the event. This will run from 11.00am to 4.00 pm.
As this is probably the last Beer Festival to be held at the Social Club due to the imminent proposed redevelopment we are hoping that the customary Saturday afternoon session will see a variety of club colours being sported by the tipplers and volunteers.
There’s still time for any companies, shops, etc to help by donating prizes for the raffles, every penny of which goes to the charity.
