May 2024 - Wow!! What a weekend that was! 

The sun shone, the beer flowed and you came in your thousands to enjoy the unique ambience of Sproughton's historic Tithe Barn and our most successful annual beer festival yet. Good weather, great beer, delicious food, live entertainment and loads and loads of happy, smiling people - even the Northern Lights turned up for a once-in-a-lifetime show. We loved it, and clearly you did, too.   

  • Our good friend Paul Mellor from Wharf Brewery who supplied our beers and ciders and loaned us the beer racking; Glenn from Wharf who opened up on Sunday morning to supply even more beer and cider and Moose who helped set up and clear away - you were epic as usual

  • Andy from Cydefx who supplied a very local cyder

  • Adnams of Southwold for supplying our lager and installing the pump kit

  • Suffolk Distillery for supplying our gins

  • Prestige Bars and Catering for keeping everybody well-fed over the weekend

  • Our performers: Salty Groyne, Saltshaker Blues, Pop Club Choir and Terry Mackley

  • David Wood, who organised and kept order throughout the Sunday Fun Quiz

  • Our principal sponsors: Brooks and Wood Civil Engineers and Francesco & Fircroft hairdressing for their loyal support 

  • Our main printers for the event: Gipping Press

  • Joy Day from Creative Joy for her help with our logo, branding, posters, flyers and advertising banners

  • Morrisons for our wines

  • Glassware Branding at Brandon for our commemorative festival glasses

  • Our fantastic volunteers who gave up their time for free to serve your beer and gin, sell the vouchers, collect and wash the empty glasses, keep the toilets clean, set out the Tithe Barn and clear eveything away after the festival. You were all magnificent

  • And last, but by no means least, all you lovely festival goers who came along to enjoy our festival. We do it for you and you never let us down. Thank you, each and every one of you.  

We have a lot of people to thank:

We do it all again next year from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th May. We hope to see you again then.
