The 19th Wedmore Real Ale Festival

After last year’s fantastic fundraising feat of £19,000 for 17 local beneficiaries, Wedmore Real Ale Festival has now risen a whopping total of staggering £205,221 since the festival began back in 2001!

With our 20-year anniversary on the horizon, we are busy planning this year’s milestone festival, which will take place on Friday 18th – Sunday 20th September. After the huge success of our new venue last year, we will be returning to the glorious spot at Glebe Field, Manor Lane, Wedmore, BS28 4EQ.

Whether you volunteered to help, taken up one of our sponsorship opportunities, donated an auction or raffle prize or simply turned up and drank ales in 2019, you made a valuable and much-appreciated contribution to our fundraising efforts last year. So: many, many thanks for your support and we hope that you, your loved ones, colleagues and everyone else you know can join us again this year.

If you would like to support the festival by sponsoring a barrel of beer or cider, then James Turbitt would love to hear from you. Just email with your details and James will be in touch.

We are also currently appealing for prizes and lots for the Sunday afternoon’s raffle and auction. If you have an item / service / promise that you wish to donate, please contact Sam Brown on Our raffle and auction is always a great fundraiser, so your contributions will make a real difference to local worthy causes.

If you would like to volunteer during the festival either to help us to set up in the mornings, during the festival or to clear up on the Sunday afternoon, then please contact Mike on 07794 781 975. Helping at such a social event is always popular and really doesn’t feel like work at all.
