Why do we do it?

Though the Beer Festival is ALL ABOUT THE BEER! there is a motivator behind all this merriment and that is to raise funds for the Friends of Chadlington School (FOCS), with all money raised subsidising some fantastic school trips and paying for the 'extras' that the school wouldn't otherwise be able to afford.

On behalf of FOCS we would like to thank EVERYONE that supports the Chadlington Beer Festival either by being on the committee, sponsoring the event, manning the bar, BBQ or kids tent or drinking copious amounts of beer on the day... without you, we would be nothing... THANK YOU!
