Organisers are ‘chuffed’ at South Wootton Beer Festival turnout
South Wootton’s second ever beer festival enjoyed such a good turnout at the weekend that more drink had to be ordered than anticipated, organisers have said.
The event, held at the village green on Saturday and Sunday, offered more than 100 beers and ciders, live music, food and family fun.
Rob Colwell, chairman of the King’s Lynn Vancouver Round Table 1114 which organises the festival, said: “Several thousand people attended, we were so chuffed with the turnout – the Green was full.
“We ended up having to obtain a lot more cider for the Sunday as we ran out on the Saturday.”
Mr Colwell said although the Round Table used a marquee four times the size of the one they used last year, where much of the event was held, it was still “packed”.
The beer festival raised funds for the Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, although the exact sum gathered for the charity is not yet known.
This year’s festival was also a special event for the Round Table, marking the organisation’s 45th year.
“We are already starting to think about next year and starting to suggest that businesses get involved as well,” Mr Colwell added.
