It is with great regret that Billericay Lions have taken the decision to postpone the 10th Billericay Beer Festival until 2021. In the current trying times there is just too much uncertainty for us to feel comfortable proceeding with the event and with everyone’s best interest at heart, the wellbeing of the public, volunteers and our members is far more important.
We had already received pledges of support and sponsorship from many of our old friends and some new and we are very grateful to them but hope they will understand this difficult decision.
CAMRA has announced a Pulling Together campaign encouraging pubs, brewers and cider makers to come up with innovative ways to keep their business afloat during this crisis – whether that be launching a new online shop, offering beer or cider takeaways or providing redeemable gift vouchers for locals and we hope you will support this initiative to keep our local businesses going.
For now, we will leave the Beer Festival website with the details from the 9th Billericay Beer Festival that took place in June 2019. You can see what we did last time and will do again in 2021.
The opening times and prices can be found here. This year, for the first time, we will be able to accept card payments for admission and beer cards (but there are no facilities for CashBack.)
2019 see the return of live music at the Festival with three local acts appearing in the lounge bar.
The Harry’s Day team will be joining us again on Sunday and will bring along some of their children’s attractions. Please help them with their efforts to raise money in Harry’s memory for GOSH and make it a great Harry’s (Sun)Day.
If you are not sure where to find the beer festival please visit the Directions page or use Google Maps to locate West Billericay Community Centre Ltd or follow this link – Google Map directions DO NOT search for Hannakins Farm, it will take you to the wrong place which is a 30 minute walk away.
As well as trying to provide a fantastic community event we are also trying to raise as much as we can for the Billericay Lions Charity which we use to help people in the local community as well as supporting Lions global projects. None of this would be possible without the help of our sponsors, some old friends have agreed to support us again this year and we are delighted to welcome some new faces. If you are interested in becoming one of our sponsors you can read about the opportunities available in our Sponsorship Letter or please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
