Cheers for the beers

Larkfleet Homes Spalding Beer and Music Festival 2018
Last weekend we got to indulge in three things close to our hearts – holiday, beer and music. To help the end of May Bank Holiday weekend go with a swing the Larkfleet team sponsored a barrel of ale at the Spalding Beer and Music Festival.

To celebrate, we held a competition on our Facebook page. Three lucky winners were treated to a pair of free tickets to the event and cash to spend behind the bar.

The event was organised by the Spalding and District Round Table. Everyone who attended supported loads of very worthy causes. Around £15,000 was raised and will be donated to local good youth causes over the next few months.

It’s not just about the money though. More than 150 beer festival volunteers – or volunbeers as they are known - served well over 12,000 pints to more than 4,500 happy patrons who went along to the Castle Sports Complex in Spalding to join in the fun.

There were 70 different real ales from 29 different breweries on offer to suit most tastes. A range of real ciders also proved popular.

To keep everyone entertained there was plenty of live music throughout the weekend. The line-up included local singer-songwriter Meg McPartlin, comedy skiffle outfit The Ouse Valley Singles Club, Another Girl Another Planet, The Chris King Robinson Band and The Hound Dogs.

Festival organisers received some amazing feedback. They have created a very special event for the community of Spalding which will hopefully become a permanent fixture in people's diaries from now on.

Cheers!
