Lions Claverham Beer 

Festival 2017 

will be held from

Friday 30th June to Sunday 2nd July

Our theme this year is

Nature and Wildlife



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.

Top quality entertainment at LCBF2017.

Friday night (tickets £8)

As ever the entertainment will be top notch. With local band the Redhillbillies ready to set the theme on Friday night with their mix of traditional, country, 50s and more recent tunes the Redhillbillies create warm nostalgic, foot tapping, partner swinging and sunshine smile on your face music. This will be a whole lot of fun and tickets are likely to sell out, so buy in advance from our outlets!

Saturday afternoon (free entry)

As has now become the tradition, this is the showcase for local singers. Not an open mike, this is the best of our local performers, this year showcasing folk from the Hibernia Centre, who specialise in Celtic music and song and "Not Guilty" who are Rimas Molis and Guy Hawthorn playing Guitar, Bazouki and Harmonica.. The afternoon will be compared by Alan Doyle who has played at LCBF in the past.

Saturday evening (tickets £8)

Clare Gaynor returns to LCBF with a modified lineup of top quality musicians forming the Cross the River (XTR) band. Derived from decades of collaboration, performance and recording XTR is a rarity delivering both original material and popular covers. This 6 piece band of stunning musicians and intricate harmonies will present a set of well crafted original songs revealing country, rock, folk & blues influences.

Sunday afternoon (free)

We are delighted to present Steve and the Old Grey Foxes. Steve Price is no stranger to Claverham Beer Festival having played with his band Acoustic Rooster on two evening sessions. This time he joins us with a slightly different lineup and a very different sound. It must be said The Old Grey Foxes are mature in years, but their superb musicianship and vocals provide a perfect balance for the laid back sets so appropriate for the Sunday afternoon "survivors" session. Steve has great personality that results in a warm stage presence bringing alive standards from the realms of Blue Grass, Country, Folk and Pop with a sprinkling of self-penned songs to weave a set that is both poignant and humorous on a variety of instruments and styles.

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 £80,000+ 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 Jonathan on 01934 876131 for a no-obligation chat.
