This year, the Beer Festival is raising funds for the Bollington Festival in 2024. For those new to Bollington, the Bollington Festival is an important and much-loved part of Bollington’s DNA. Held roughly every four years, we believe it is the largest, entirely volunteer-run Festival in the country. 2024 will mark the 60th (diamond!) anniversary of the Bollington Festival which first took place in 1964. For further details check out their website. We will return to raising funds for community projects in 2026

The Arts Centre is also a major benefactor of the festival and receives between £2000 and £2500 every year – over £14,000 raised in total so far.

Previous worthy causes:

  • Local Girl Guides group who are fund raising for a new centre to be built, possibly, on the Watermill Estate
    • ALEX project and “Stroke, Meet, Move and Improve”. Both groups, which are entirely volunteer run, work with Bollington Health and Leisure to provide exercise and physiotherapy for Parkinson’s and stroke survivors. They also provide a social environment for the carers
