Suckley to hold BFG Fest

The residents of Suckley have organised a beer and food festival to celebrate village life and raise funds to support hospice care across the county.

The BFG Fest (Beer, Food and Gift Fest) will be held in and around Suckley Church on Saturday 24th September, from 3pm – 9pm, in aid of St Richard’s Hospice and the Space Project.

Visitors to the village can sample a range of beers, ciders and wines, as well as produce from local food producers. There will also be live music, a bouncy castle and a hog roast.

Sarah Saleh, event organiser, said; “We decided to run a beer and food festival to raise money for St Richard’s, a local charity close to our hearts, and also to raise funds to enable us to undertake major changes to The Space in Suckley Church so that it can be shared by the village school for their activities and also be a resource for the rest of the community. We hope that lots of people will come along to enjoy our beautiful village and enjoy some delicious local produce.”

The event will include draught beers and ciders for sale from a bar which will be set up in the church, serving locally produced drinks including beer from Teme Valley Brewery and a brand new brewery opening up in Suckley; The Unity Brew House. Live music will be provided by a Jazz band and other local musicians. There will also be face painting, provided by Fledglings Nursery School, and a bouncy castle for the children. A local hog roast company will be there as well as teas, coffees and cakes being served. Market stalls will offer produce from local suppliers including a selection of local wines, bottled beers, ciders and apple juices, a selection of gifts from Trade Nepal and various stalls of locally grown, laid and made fruit, vegetables, eggs and jams.

Any local producers of food, beverages or crafts who would like a stall at the festival can contact Anne Potter at
