We featured 31 real ales, 5 real ciders and 2 real ciders, including many local producers and others from further afield. At the end of the 2024 event we still had 25 different beers on sale and all the ciders & perries.
The festival was again held at Widcombe Social Club, a stone’s throw from Bath Spa train station. Widcombe Social Club is a non-profit community focused venue hosting a wide range of events throughout the year.
Festival goers were once again generous, enabling the branch to present a £300 cheque to Rachel Avent, Senior Community and Events Fundraiser for its 2024 nominated charity, Julian House. The presentation took place at the Royal Oak on Tue 20th Feb. Julian House supports vulnerable and at-risk individuals experiencing homelessness and escaping domestic abuse, adults with learning difficulties, and people who need support after leaving prison.
