North Leeds Charity Beer Festival Returns for 2018

North Leeds Charity Beer Festival Returns for 2018 | The Rotary Club of Roudhay | Scoop.it
Want an excuse to go out and drink your fill of real ale, cider and gin? At the North Leeds Charity Beer Festival, it’s all for a good cause. Now in its seventh year, North Leeds Charity Beer Festival has become one of Roundhay’s most anticipated events. It’s a collaboration between the Rotary Club of Roundhay and Sam Parker from the British Guild of Beer Writers – so you can expect a tour de force of top class real ales. And as always, all money raised will be used to help local community projects. This year’s event is entitled ‘The Magnificent Seventh’ and will return to the North Leeds Cricket Club on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th April 2018 – but they’re introducing something new this year. Alongside the array of real ales and ciders on the taps, they’re going to have a Gin Bar for the first time ever, and it will showcase some of the UK’s finest distilleries, from Masons to JJ Whitley. If you’re going for the traditional fare, you can try over 35 different beers from at least seven breweries – Quirky Ales, James & Kirkman Brewery, New Wharf Brewing Co, Wylam Brewery, Wilde Child Brewing Co, Kirkstall Brewery and Hawkshead Brewery will all be there. They’re also going to have seven Yorkshire ciders, as well as spirits and soft drinks if you need a change. Feeling hungry? You can tuck into homemade samosas or visit the Wilson’s of Crossgates for one of their famous pork pies to mop up the booze. Leeds Cricket Club will be open from 6pm Friday night, and from 12 noon on Saturday. Entry is £10 a day, although you can get a £2 discount if you book your ticket in advance online – members of CAMRA or SPBW will get a £2 discount regardless. Your ticket gets you their special festival pack, including a commemorative beer glass, programme and two beer tokens, with extra tokens available for £1.50. Although the North Leeds Charity Beer Festival will be attended for its wide range of real ales, it’s important to note that it is all for a good cause. They’ve raised over £30,000 so far – and they added over £8,000 to that total in 2017 alone. The money helps to support a series of community ventures like St Gemma’s Hospice, Roundhay Stroke Club and John Jamieson School. Fingers crossed, they’ll add to that considerably in April, with a little help from the city’s beer aficionados. North Leeds Charity Beer Festival is at Leeds Cricket Club on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th April 2018. Tickets are available now.

MORLEY PLEDGES SUPPORT FOR SEVENTH ANNUAL CHARITY EVENT

MORLEY PLEDGES SUPPORT FOR SEVENTH ANNUAL CHARITY EVENT | The Rotary Club of Roudhay | Scoop.it
Morley Glass & Glazing is once again the proud headline sponsor of the North Leeds Charity Beer Festival, which will be returning with a new twist to North Leeds Cricket Club from 6-7 April. Now in its seventh year, the annual community charity fundraising festival, featuring food, drink and music festival will this year debut a gin bar alongside 35 real ales from seven breweries and seven ciders. As always, the fine selection of real ale, cider and gin will be complemented by pork pies and vegetable samosas, as well as a fantastic programme of local bands. Initially created with an aim to showcase interesting and unusual beers from Yorkshire micro and independent breweries, the festival has since achieved so much more. From humble beginnings in 2012, the event has raised over £30k to enable the Rotary Club of Roundhay to support many projects in the local area and further afield. Ian Short, managing director of Morley Glass & Glazing says: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor the 7th Annual North Leeds Charity Beer Festival and welcome the fact that gin is on the menu to help appeal to an even wider audience – and help raise more funds.  This is exactly the type of initiative we like to be involved with as it perfectly reflects our ethos of giving back to local communities. I will be rolling up my sleeves and helping alongside the Rotarians and I am very much looking forward to the event. I wish NLBF and the Rotary Club of Roundhay every success.” The Leeds-based sealed unit manufacturer and ScreenLine® integral blinds supplier also sponsors many other local charities, sports clubs and good causes and is this year celebrating its 20th anniversary.

My Story Since 2012 The Rotary Club of Roundhay’s beer festival has raised over £30k and charities based locally in Leeds, nationally and Internationally have benefited. In 2017 we made a £250 donation to Cash for Kids following a successful sixth beer festival. Other local organisations to receive financial support include: St Gemma’s Hospice, John Jamieson School, Roundhay Stroke Club, Catch in Harehills and Leeds Rowing Club based at Roundhay Park Lake, where two rowing machines were funded. Local Rotary programmes including the ocean-going Young Sailor, Young Musician, Young Writer, Young Citizen, Young Chef, Leeds Technology Tournament and Rotary Youth Leadership Award have also received funding from the monies raised. We are indebted to our major sponsors Morley Glass and Glazing Ltd and Express Bi-Folding Doors for their continued support without which the festival wouldn’t take place and the Rotary Club of Roundhay couldn’t fund their worthwhile projects. We would also like acknowledge the support of our individual sponsors and advertisers whose contribution is invaluable.

The cost of entry is £10, however you can get a £2 discount by booking your tickets in advance online – members of CAMRA or SPBW will get a £2 discount regardless. The ticket price entitles you to a special festival pack which includes a commemorative beer glass, programme and two beer tokens, with extra tokens available for £1.50.
