Festival Charity:

 We support a Festival Charity for a period of 3 years. They make around £7000 each year, but it also raises their profile. We choose small local charities.  

This is the first year for the Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society.



Home Brew Competition and Bar Nouveau.


The Festival is encouraging local home brewers through a competition, with the prize of brewing their beer in collaboration with a local commercial brewer. Along with other new beers you can try the winning brews on the Festival’s innovative Bar Nouveau.
