Beer festival raises £12,500 despite watered down weather

Ripon Cathedral Beer Festival took place in the Dean’s Garden on a chilly and damp Bank Holiday Monday, but 1,000 hardy folk braved the weather to give their support.  

Some £12,500 raised for the cathedral future development fund.

With over 40 different local beers including the popular G&P Gin infused beer from Daleside Brewery and local Sleningford Cider, the beer tent was a big draw; visitors also enjoyed and danced along to the hugely popular King Courgette, The Elders, Leon Marshall and Ripon born Two Well Worn.

Molly Lawson, Fundraising Events Officer said: “The event was a fantastic success and despite the weather forecast, our supporters showed just how loyal they are to brave the weather and join us!

"We have such fantastic volunteers which help to make the event possible, thank you to everyone who contributed.”

“We hope that everyone who attended enjoyed the day and that many can join us next year for the 15th annual Beer Festival - to see in the bank holiday on Monday, May 4, 2020. 

"In the meantime we will pray for sunshine!”
