HORWICH BEER FESTIVAL | Thursday 6th September - Saturday 8th September 2018 | Horwich RMI | Ramsbottom Road BL6 5NH

Welcome to the Horwich Beer Festival - Run by the Rotary Club of Horwich - "Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things."

Thanks for supporting this weekend which has now become part of the Horwich tradition.

Starting out some 18 years ago, the first few years were a struggle to get the event established. However the event has grown and grown and in just the last 5 years has raised more than £60,000 to fund local, national and international projects.

In 2018, we again offer a wide range of beers, lagers and ciders as well as by popular request, the return of the much-appreciated Prosecco bar.

Our thanks to those local businesses and individuals who have sponsored the event again this year and the many volunteers who have supported and helped our hard-working Beer Festival committee.

Our 85 sponsors will enjoy a magnificent buffet (prepared by the staff at our host venue, the Horwich RMI club) and free drinks on Thursday evening before the local mayor pronounces the event open to the public.

For more than 70 years Horwich Rotary Club has been an extremely pro-active organisation that supports local, national and international projects.

We have a vibrant Rotary web site ( www.rotary-ribi.org/clubs/homepage) and Facebook pages that show the community how we focus locally on the needs of young people to improve the quality of their health, sporting, cultural and social needs. Whilst internationally we help people in more impoverished parts of the world to enable children to have clean water, food, education, health care and strengthen local economies.

With our help, Rotary International in collaboration with the Bill Gates Foundation has now come within a hairs breath of abolishing polio across the world.

The 2017 event saw yet another record turnout and we entertained 200+ Middlesborough football fans on Saturday morning en route to their match v Bolton. ( Unfortunately Bolton lost 2:0!! ) We are a small town but the community really supports this event and we hope that continues for many years to come.

Thank you!
