Village gears up for tipple time



Have your say

This weekend will see Kilham welcome festival goers to its third annual beer, cider and music festival and with the weather set to be fair it promises to be another bumper weekend.

Held at the village playing field on the corner of Back Lane and Thwing Road there will be 30 real ales and 13 craft ciders to sample as well as the usual bottle bar. In addition there will be live music all weekend with Big Me, Suicide Badgers, Sleeping Secrets, Broken Flowers, Ben Parcel, Dogfinger, The Moonshine Music Men, Katie Spencer, Lindsey Simpson, The Flivvers and Poppy Shrimpton as well as plenty of entertainment for the children.

All proceeds from the event are donated to the Kilham Playing Field Association to help maintain and develop the village playing field.

The gates open at 6pm on Friday where tickets will be available and are priced at £7.50, £10 or £15 for Friday, Saturday or a weekend pass respectively and include a festival glass, programme and beer tokens. Children and under 18’s are free.

“The last two festivals have been a huge success and we have been praised for our family friendly atmosphere. The festival helps raise vital funds for the Playing Field Association and it’s great to be able to hold such an event on a site that festival goers are helping to develop and maintain”

“The support from local businesses has also been overwhelming and we have sold out of all of our barrel sponsorship packages and we are extremely grateful for their support”
