The Haddenham Real Ale Festival saw around 2,300 people defy the wet weather to raise more than £18,000 for charity.

Organisers experimented with a new layout at the event with an outside bar featuring local ales, lager and bottled beer.

There were 80 beers on offer to sample with many people still opting for Pimms despite the lack of sunshine.

Committee member Nick Moore said: “We’d like to say thank you to all committee members for
their hard work, all the volunteers who helped on the day and everyone
who sponsored the event.”

This year’s summer festival was the ninth run by registered charity Haddenham Beer Festivals Trust which has raised more than £100,000 to date.

The Trust is appealing for any good causes in or near Haddenham in need of funding to apply for grants. Email haddenhambeerfestival@gmail.com

The Trust’s next festival is the Winterfest  on December 8 at the Haddenham Village Hall.
