Welcome

CLAVERHAM BEER FESTIVAL

Claverham Village Hall, Bishops Road, Claverham, North Somerset, BS49 4NF

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.



CBF 2017 will be Friday 30th June to Sunday 2nd July

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 CBF2017.

 

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. The afternoon will be compared by Alan Doyle who has played at CBF in the past.

 

Saturday evening (tickets £8)

Clare Gaynor returns to CBF 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)

James Slater is a consummate musician and singer. He has teamed up with Sarana VerLin and Heather Bristow to form “Iron and Oak”. Together they are pioneers of a new musical genre: Folk Stroke Americana. Bringing you roots music influences from both sides of the Atlantic their style is a fusion of Contemporary Folk, Alt-Country, Swampy Blues and Red Dirt music. Their musical chemistry is based around their entwining voices and sublime harmonies, bedded on a layer of rhythmic guitar and sweet smoky violin.
