Wappenham Beer and Music Festival
The first beer festival was held on the 21st June 2014, the first year it was just held on the Saturday and there were 12 barrels of beer. This has increased to 16 barrels of beer, plenty of cider and is held on Friday evenings and all day Saturday. We have live music on both days, with bands giving their time up voluntarily, and have raised about £12,000 for our chosen charities.
We fund the over 70’s Christmas dinner in the village and contribute towards the upkeep of the village hall. Our main beneficiary is The Friends of Danetre Hospital based in Daventry. This charity is purely voluntary with no paid employees, so every penny we raise goes directly to helping buy vital equipment for visitors to the hospital.
