How can I sponsor the festival?

f you would like to be a sponsor of our beer festival, please see our sponsorship packages page on the web site

Why do you charge entry?

The entry charge covers some of our set up costs for the beer festival, along with the souvenir glasses and programs that are given to every attendee.

Why do you charge for the beers and ciders at the festival?

We do not get any of our beers or ciders given to us, we have to purchase them all at market rates. We do take barrel sponsorships, but the money this raises does not cover our purchase costs. We then have to factor in our beer and cider wastage costs at the end of the Festival, as this has to be accounted for. We try to keep our charges reasonable, despite rising costs from our suppliers.

All proceeds go towards the 2nd Cuddington (Rowe) Scout Group.
