The Crawley Beer & Cider Festival will be at Three Bridges Football Club from Fri May 30 to Sat June 1. This is three weeks later than last year and is the weekend after the bank holiday so hopefully the weather will be drier and warmer. Thanks to those who braved that freezing cold Friday evening last year!
The opening times will be: Fri May 30 17:00 – 22:30 (open to all this year) Sat May 31 11:00 – 17:00 and 17:00 – 22:30 (all one session this year, but split into two staff shifts) Sun June 1 11:00 – 15:00
The festival would be glad to welcome any help and assistance whether it be setting up, serving at the bar or front desk or taking down, either from yourselves or friends, and would welcome any suggestions as to how we can improve on last year, especially with regard to staffing.
The aim is to have tokens instead of cash and there may be some entertainment this year, such as morris dancers and/or a guitarist. Most beers will be from local micro breweries and ciders sourced from Middle Farm and will be available free to workers (so long as they can stand up!) The organisers will also look to improve the food (for both staff and drinkers) and may even introduce a BBQ for our hard working helpers.
Please let Nigel know on 07791 872289 if you may be able to kindly help again this year or know of anyone who might like to help. If not, hopefully they’ll see you on the other side of the bar!
