Nutty neon disco and beer festival fun
A POPULAR charity beer festival will pour its 40,000th pint at the weekend. The 28th Chesham Beer Festival will be held once again at The Chess Suite at Chesham United Football Club, in Amy Lane, Chesham, on Saturday.
Opening at noon and closing at 7pm, there will be about 24 different beers and some ciders to sample from a wide range of brewers – all to the accompaniment of live music. Soft drinks will also be available.
Food will also be available to purchase on the day.
Profits from the beer festival will go to charities supported by Amersham and Chesham Lions Club, which took over the running of the festival from Chesham Round Table in recent years, together with support from Chesham 41 Club.
The event is free but there is a nominal charge for the hire of glasses.
