Our 11th Annual Old Town Beer Festival at Christ Church Is Just a Few Weeks Away!

It’s our 11th year and we hope it will be the best one yet.  The festival is our biggest fundraiser of the year so please come along and support it!

After the success of last year, we will be running the festival over FOUR DAYS again.

On Thursday 9th May we will open the festival with our comedy evening in Christ Church.

Doors and the bar opens at 6pm for an early sampling and food will be available to purchase from the fabulous Food for thought who will be serving their amazing fish and chips plus burgers, hot dogs etc.

There will be top comedy from Headliner Fiona Allen as seen on: Smack the Pony, Mock the week, Alan Partridge, 8 out of 10 cats, never mind the buzzcocks, the Frank Skinner show.

Support acts include Jonathan Elston ‘A comic with incredible talent’ The Guardian and Ian Macdonald – who has been gigging since he made 400 vicars laugh (at the same time!) and realised that Stand Up Comedy was the mid-life crisis he was searching for.

Swindon local, the fabulous Sam Michael will be returning as our MC for the night.
