The Horncastle Community Beer Festival is a joint venture between Horncastle Cricket Club and the Horncastle Community Members Squash Club, who decided to pool resources for a fundraising event. It is held annually over the August Bank Holiday weekend and is intended to be a fun, friendly and safe event. The venue is the Astro Bar Pavillion, next to the cricket ground and we make sure there is a game of cricket organised for the Saturday afternoon, to entertain visitors and supporters. Both clubs are non profit making organisations and use the funds raised to bolster much needed finances. The money goes to developing junior players, providing new playing and training equipment and improving and renewing the clubs playing facilities. 2012 was our second event and visitors were able to sample 23 different beers, 6 ciders, 4 perries and wines from around the world.
