Croughton Family Beer Festival

Croughton Family Beer Festival - Sept 15
2nd August 2018

Put the date in your diary - Saturday 15th September 2018 for the Croughton Family Beer Festival! This will be an event for all the family. We'll be serving local real ales, cider and perry. There will be a bouncy castle, games with cash prizes and hopefully an auction. The festival will include live music in the late afternoon and evening. It all takes place at the Reading Room and at the Blackbird pub who have a festival food menu available. So make sure to come along to Croughton High Street any time from 2pm.

Everyone is welcome to come. Tickets for the beers, cider and perry will be £8 per person - and the drink vouchers can be used in the pub.

Fun for all the family

There will be family games such as Aunt Sally - if you have never played before now is your chance to learn. It's a traditional English game in which players throw sticks or battens at a model of an old woman's head; mainly played in Oxfordshire and some bordering counties. There will be some amazing cash prizes for winner and the runner up in each.
