Nailsea and Backwell Beer & Cider Festival
PHOTOS: All from Saturday, July 13, on a lovely summer's day. The slideshow below is in chronological order and the people get slighty more animated as the day progresses. North Somerset MP Liam Fox, his wife Jesme and friends put in their annual appearance, the Rotarians manned the gate from early until late and a host of other volunteers who all worked tirelessly to ensure we had a good, nay great time, a huge thank you. The event began in 2004 when it served 17 beers and 13 ciders and raised monies for children's charity Dreams Come True. Since then thousands of pounds have been raised for well-deserving causes. This year the Great Western Air Ambulance will benefit. Behind the bar will be 60 different cask and keg beers and more than 110 different ciders plus Pimms, gin and Prosecco tents. The people from The Farmhouse pub were in charge of the hog roast and a good time was had by all especially those wearing the funny hats and the odd lampshade. The musicians were marvellous and we heard everything from the Beatles to Bob Marley with the lyrics for Sweet Caroline and the Oasis song Don't Look Back In Anger on a loop in my head along with Annies Song. Loved the Australian rap song by The Munchies and many, many more.
