Mayfield’s very own Beer festival is back after a Covid absence last year. It is the most anticipated and enjoyed event that the Memorial Hall organises, and this year will be no exception. Due to the economic impact of the COVID pandemic and be ongoing uncertainty about whether events could take place, we simply could not organise the event well in advance and decided that it would be unfair to ask sponsors to commit to funding the festival if it had to be cancelled.
However conditions are now such that we believe the festival can safely go ahead in August and we have decided that the Hall will fund this special POP UP festival ourselves as a thank you to all the people who have helped keep the Memorial Hall going and alive during this most difficult time. So we ask for the support of everyone in Mayfield to come to the festival and make it a success for the whole village.
Our POP UP festival has all the best of what we’ve done before, a whole host of real ales and ciders, a full gin bar, a Saturday Barbecue and a dance to live music on Saturday night.
It’s Free for Everyone .. Even without sponsorship the festival is still FREE Entry. It starts on Friday 6th August from 7pm -12pm with over 15 beers and ciders to try. It continues on Saturday 7th August from 1pm – 12pm complete with a Family Barbecue from 5pm Nigel’s Butchers of Ashbourne and a Family Night Dance from 8pm with Live music from Paul Gibson, a Mayfield favourite. It finishes on Sunday 8th August with a session we call ‘Two Til’ It’s Gone!’ Join us for a farewell drink and help finish of the remaining beers and ciders at very special prices. We open the doors at 2pm and close them when we run dry.
So this August cancel Corfu, avoid Alicante and make sure you are having a staycation in Mayfield and enjoy the best of British at your own Beer Festival!
