The main ’Beer and Wine‘ event kicks off at 5pm on Friday! Definitely the best night of the festival – full range of beers, ciders and wines all in peak condition, rapid service at the bar, great combination of live and recorded music and enough punters to create an exciting buzz without feeling crowded. Freshly cooked food will be available with stands offering Thai noodles, Greek style food, Burgers, Pizzas and much more.
Enjoy a comprehensive selection of beers, ciders and wines to suit every taste. Full details and tasting notes are on the Guest Drinks pages – Beer and real ales, Cider and Perry, Wines. This year we also have a bar manager report for beer/real ale and a bar manager report for cider/perry.
Music from a wide variety of bands (the majority of which are local) will play until 11pm. Details are on the Bands and Musicians page. There will be plenty of musical variety with a mix of genres and styles to suit both young and the more mature.
We are a family friendly event and there is something for everyone so come along and enjoy the fun.
Dogs: unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the festival site, as we have to consider the health and safety of all our visitors – plus the wellbeing of the dogs. Go to the FAQs page for more information.
Glasses: no free glasses…..…..in the interests of the environment and to save wastage. You may use your own Summer Moon pint or half-pint plastic glass from previous years (but not any made of actual glass or any other plastic glasses). Summer Moon pint glasses have the measures for half pint and full pint on the side. Summer Moon half-pint glasses have the measures for 125ml and 250ml (wine measures) as well as for half a pint on the side. As a general rule, for safety reasons, no glass of any description is allowed on the festival site. For additional information, see the sections on Glass and Glasses on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
“Summer Moon – the place to be with your friends and family”
We welcome new talent and wish to thank all those bands and musicians that contacted us for a session at the Festival. If you weren’t successful this year, and you are a reasonably local band, why not contact us again early next year?
