The 15th Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival will be held on 11th - 13th July 2019 at St Clement's Church on Edge Lane in Chorlton-cum-Hardy.
Run in conjunction with St Clements, the festival began in 2005 to raise funds for the repair of the church buildings, but has grown to become a firm fixture in the Chorlton social calendar and the branch's premier festival. The festival continues to raise funds for the upkeep of the church complex which offers a wide range of meeting places serving the Chorlton community.
The festival takes place in the buildings and grounds of the Church. 2019 will see the festival focus on local breweries and community events. Expect 60+ beer plus one of Manchester's largest cider & perry bars with over 50 traditional ciders & perries.
There's live music in the grounds and a range of quality street food available at each session.
Following the success of the previous three year’s festivals, St Clements Church have enrolled Trafford and Hulme Branch of CAMRA to ensure the quality and range of the beers continue to develop. Although T&H have been instrumental in organising, managing and serving the beer for the previous festivals, this is the first time that the relationship has become official, meaning that the event has now hit the CAMRA diary.
