With the news that social limits are likely to lift on 21st June – all going well, I started investigating some beery summer social fun.
Last year, both local beer festivals were cancelled, but are looking promising for this July.
What’s great is that unlike previous years, The Oxted Beer Festival and Godstoneberry do not clash, and fall on the first and second weekend of July respectively.
This is fantastic news. They are very different events and I hope they can both go ahead as planned.
I have put in an application to volunteer at Oxted, and also hope to attend the family friendly Godstoneberry the next weekend with a baby in tow, and hopefully some ‘new parent’ friends too!
I can’t quite imagine being in a crowded tent with lots of other people but am crossing my fingers that by then it feels normal again. And hoping for decent weather of course!
You can buy tickets for Godstoneberry here (9-11 July) and Oxted Beer Festival here (2-4th July).
