Beer festival is everyone's cup of tea
10:10am Monday 11th June 2012 in Witney
It may have been wild and windy elsewhere but the sun shone on Chadlington for its annual beer festival.
The West Oxfordshire event, at the village’s Memorial Hall, is a fundraiser for Chadlington Primary School and is now in its ninth year.
As well as a selection of 22 ales, families enjoyed a barbecue, live music, a bouncy castle, face-painting and games.
Among those tasting the beers on offer was villager David Mackenzie with fiancée Kay Ellerington and friend Anna Stracey, pictured right.
Mr Mackenzie, 33 said: “I’m having a very good day. It’s brilliant, it seems like the whole village is out here. Everyone is out on the grass and on hay bales.”
Tracey Cooper, from Shipton-under-Wychwood, brought along children, Anna, three, in main picture, James, five, and friend Rebecca Chilcot, three.
Mrs Cooper said: “It was just such a nice atmosphere, full of families sitting around and chatting.
“It’s quite small and intimate but not too crowded and the children liked it.”
