We've just heard from Michael O'Hare at The St. Catherine's Club on School Lane, that Didsbury Beer Festival 2010 raised over £10,000 for charity!
We're massive fans of the Beer Festival and visit at least once every year. Many friends of Fetch Didsbury donate their time to help out at the festival, and to hear that the total was into 5 figures is incredible.
"The fantastic success of the Oct 2010 beer festival has realised in excess of £10,000 for the local charities Cornerstone and Christies. A presentation night to the two beneficiaries will take place at St. Catherine's Club on Saturday January 15th. The local band Modern World, who had them dancing in the aisles at the Festival, will entertain and a selection of the best Festival ales will be available on the night and over the following week. Hot Pot supper only £3 per head on the door. All welcome."
Let's hope that next years Didsbury Beer Festival is as, if not even more successful. If you haven't had a chance to visit yet, be sure it's on your list for late 2011!
