We hope that everybody out there is managing to stay safe and well in these difficult times.
It is with great sadness that we must confirm that the Chorlton Beer & CIder Festival will not take place this year. With the uncertainty of when restrictions will be lifted, we cannot proceed with organising for our planned dates in July.
While we considered rescheduling for later in the year, we concluded that when normality resumes, St Clement’s will serve our community best by resuming worship and catching up on weddings & baptisms that have been postponed during the crisis. At the same time, the pubs & bars of Chorlton will need to see you back drinking with them.
We’ll be back in 2021.
Please Stay Safe so we can see you there.
With the Government closing all of our pubs, bars & restaurants to control the spread of COVID19, many of our local establishments are relaunching themselves offering take-away food and/or off-sales of beer & cider.
As Chorlton Beer & Cider Festival has been supported by these businesses over the years, to give a little back, we’ve started to compile a guide to how our locals are planning on seeing out the current restrictions.
We will be expanding the list to cover restaurants over the next couple of days.
17th March 2020
Today the Church Of England has suspended public worship until further notice. CAMRA has cancelled all festivals until the end of June (including Stockport Beer & Cider Festival which was scheduled to take place from 7th – 9th May).
Over the coming days and weeks, we will be monitoring the situation and advice from government, the Church and CAMRA and reviewing whether the festival can continue as scheduled, be postponed until later in the year or needs to be cancelled.
These are trying times for everyone but life and health must come first. Please stay safe, look after your loved ones and the vulnerable.
