We are very pleased to anounce that the 2016 Beer Festival in Houghton le Spring will be going ahead on the 6th & 7th May.
You may have heard rumours that there would be no Festival this year due to fallin membership of Houghton le Spring and District Round Table the organisation that founded and has been running the Beer Festival since it's inception. The decline of Round Table membership is true and to secure the future of this event and the funds it raises for Charity the Round Table have passed on the mantle to Houghton Le Spring 41Club the organisation for retired Round Table members who will run the event from this year and moving forward.
Everything will be just as good as before as many of the 2016 crop of 41Club members were Round Table members when the Beer Festival was founded and have been part of running the Beer Festival Every Year.
So we hope as ever the good people of Houghton le Spring will turn out in good numbers, drink the festival dry and raise lots of money for good causes, and that local business will once again show it's support and provide sponsorship.
To kick off the Sponsorship anouncements we are over the moon to anounce that Houghton Le Spring and District Round Table will be this years headline sponsor.
