17 Jul No Cotswold Beer Festival
No Cotswold Beer Festival
Today the Cotswold Beer Festival launched a unique ‘No Cotswold Beer Festival’ t-shirt to raise funds for Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity. They announced the dates for next year’s beer festival as 16th-18th July 2021.
Friday 17th July would have been the start of this year’s Festival but, with the pandemic raging, the festival team had no choice but to cancel the event for the first time in its 44-year history.
Cotswold Beer Festival has been running for 43 years and is the oldest beer festival in the UK held at the same location. It is run by volunteers from Gloucestershire CAMRA and members of Postlip Society.
Beer festival organiser John Barrett, from the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), said “I’ve been part of the festival team since 1977 and even during the flooding year in 2007 we didn’t close.” The festival is a not-for-profit event and also donates funds to local charities. For 2020 the organisers have decided to create something new to support local charities.
The ‘No Cotswold Beer Festival’ t-shirt is designed by local artist and festival organiser Jan McMillan. Jan who is also a member of Postlip Society said. “I’ve designed nearly all the logos for 43 Beer Festivals to date, and I wasn’t going to let Covid-19 stop me this year!”
The ‘No Cotswold Beer Festival’ t-shirt is printed on organic cotton and is available from Postlip Hall’s Etsy shop. Any profit from the sale of the t-shirt will go to Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity.
