Yeo Valley Lions Claverham Beer Festival is an annual event that is supported by the local community. It is designed to provide everyone with a great weekend, but of course to raise funds for local causes.  To date well over 380 different beers and ciders have been featured with over £60,000 raised for charities as diverse as Great Western Air Ambulance, Weston Hospice and Riding for the Disabled.

The Festival begins on the Friday night at 7.30 and tickets are available. Saturday evening session (7.30) is also a ticketed session, and on occasions both these sessions are sold out in advance, so prior purchase is recommended. The Saturday and Sunday afternoon sessions are free entry and doors open at 12.30. The Festival closes on Sunday around 4.30 to 5pm whenever the beer has run out.

We are very grateful to our sponsors who cover much of our costs. If you feel you might like to join our band of happy sponsors, there are lots of options, so please do call Nigel for a no-obligation chat.

1st - 3rd July 2016 A Right Royal Affair

See stop press

The Queen's 90th birthday celebration is the inspiration for this year's Festival. We will feature a suitably noble selection of beers, think of a few, they will almost certainly be there. Royal Oak, Windsor Knot, Jubilee Ale (at least 4 versions of that one) plus we hope also to feature some new craft beers from micro-breweries. Though we will have to wait until nearer the event to see what is being brewed and which pass our ultra stringent taste test. It's a tough job but somebody's got to do it. We plan to increase the range of ciders again and of course will have wine to suit everyone's palate and soft drinks at each session.

As usual we will have some fabulous entertainment, with a real favourite Acoustic Rooster (not Atomic Rooster as on the posters) opening for us on Friday at 7.30. Whilst on Saturday night we have a fantastic new band Alice and the Wild Tones supported by Sarah Proudfoot. Alice fronts a classy 7 piece Blues, Swing n' Roll outfit - new on the block, coming out of Bristol - not to be missed so get your dancing shoes on!

Remember the evening sessions get very full so pre-purchase of tickets still priced at only £8 is strongly advised. This guarantees entry and the first pint free, plus a Festival glass to take home.

The afternoon sessions are free entry from 12.30 and will feature local folk on Saturday – talented musicians performing a range of music and song again featuring Sarah Proudfoot, and something very different on Sunday afternoon The Six Five Specials - come and hear them they are great musicians with the most laid back of all laid back styles you could imagine. As ever there will also be the “World Spoof Championships”.
