After an enforced absence of two years, this July, St Clements Church will once again be packed with fine beers, ciders and gins as Chorlton Beer & Cider Festival returns.
It’s early days in the planning but expect all your favourite features – a great range of cask ales, the World Beers bar, fresh chilled live keg beers, ciders and perries galore and last, but not least, the return of the Vicar’s Gin Bar.
Save the dates – the festival will run from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th July 2022.
Ticket details will be available soon – keep an eye on our social media feeds for news.
As ever, the festival is only possible thanks to a small army of volunteers who put it together, server the drinks, staff the gate and take it all down again. As ever, the festival raises funds to support St Clements’ work in the Chorlton community.
Sponsorship opportunities are open now – if your business would be interested in supporting the festival, get in touch via the contact us page.
Proceeds from the festival are used to support St Clement’s work supporting the Chorlton community – over the years, funds raised by the festival have supported the maintenance of the church buildings and helped fund the creation of three halls for community use, disabled toilets, updated electrical systems, new kitchen facilities and much more.
Like many of you we are gutted there will be no festival this year. However, St Clement’s still needs help to cover the maintenance of the church during lockdown.
There is a Just Giving page where you can contribute to the shortfall in St Clement’s funding due to the pandemic and help them continue their work in the community.
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.
