Evelyn Partners Sponsor Knaresborough Beer Fest 2024!

After a resounding success in 2023, the Henshaws Knaresborough Beer Fest is making a triumphant return to our lovely town, promising an even better offering.

On Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May, the festival will feature two family-friendly daytime events and an adult only evening session, providing a diverse and unmissable experience for festival goers of all ages.

The annual Knaresborough Beer Fest plays a crucial role as a fundraiser for Henshaws, supporting individuals living with sight loss and disabilities across the north of England.

Attendees can anticipate an eclectic array of handpicked beers, gins, wines, and ciders, all proudly crafted in Yorkshire. Fantastic local breweries, including Cold Bath Brewing, Daleside, Harrogate Brewing Co, Roosters, and Turning Point, will once again unite to provide the best of the best in Beer for this yearly event.

The festivities will also include an incredible line-up of live music across two stages and pop-up vendors offering a tempting variety of freshly cooked foods, from sizzling BBQ to delicious fresh pizza and more. Fun activities and games throughout the day also ensure entertainment for kids and adults alike.

The weekend’s entertainment will showcase performances from local talents, featuring sets from artists such as Henshaws ambassador DJ Rory Hoy who never fails to get the party started and acoustic artist Leo Hicks who has been featured on BBC introducing and is a not to be missed performance!

The amazing Evelyn and Partners are proud sponsors of the event this year. Viki Herrtage (Associate Director of Everlyn Partners) stated “We are thrilled to support this fabulous local event and the wonderful work that Henshaws do for people living with sight loss and other disabilities.

More than just a beer festival, this is an opportunity for the Artmakers and staff to welcome the local community into the Henshaws family and help raise money for their fantastic cause. The fundraising team and their amazing volunteers work exceptionally hard to make this a fun-filled weekend for all the family, but they need our support – so let’s all dig deep and make 2024 the best year yet!”

Flora Simpson, Senior Fundraiser at Henshaws highlighted ‘’We are so excited to invite the community into our unique and special space at the the Arts and Crafts Centre. It is the perfect festival site, offering a large stage area, undercover spaces, and both outdoor and indoor seating. We want to express our sincere gratitude for the local sponsors, especially the title sponsor, Evelyn and Partners, and the collaborative efforts of the local breweries who without the event wouldn’t be possible or as successful.’’

Volunteers also play a crucial role in enabling this charity event to go ahead, and those interested in getting involved please contact [email protected] for further information.
