It is fair to say that the coronavirus pandemic has had a massive impact on live events.

The coming of the pandemic led to an extinction of events last year and this year alike, with Glastonbury Festival and Brighton Pride falling victims to ongoing concerns about the spread of the illness.

However, amid a sweep of cancellations, at least one festival in our area is going ahead.

The organisers of the Twyford Beer Festival are confident about the event taking place this year, as they have submitted an events and entertainment licence to Wokingham Borough Council.

Festival organiser Ian Wisdom has applied to hold the beer festival from 10am to 11pm on Friday, June 25 to Saturday, June 26.

Plays, films, recorded music, and dance performances are all planned for the festival, with these activities running from 11am to 10.45pm.

But the biggest draw will probably be the beer. Mr Wisdom has applied to sell alcohol from 11am, with last orders being called at 10.30pm.

Viewing the licence application, there is also a potential that there could be more events at Stanlake Meadow in the future. The licensing application states: “The Festival to be held on Stanlake Meadow on up to four separate occasions in a calendar year and have a duration of between one to four days from Monday to Sunday that may include bank holidays.”

No further events have been planned so far, according to Lucy Moffitt, the clerk of Tywford Parish Council. Yet the application, if granted, does open the possibility for three more events on the site.

There is currently a countdown to the festival on its official website. The event is ticket only.

Standard tickets cost £10, which gets you access to the festival site and two drinks vouchers. You can also pay £30 and get an extra 10 drinks vouchers along with admission.

Teens aged 16 and 17 can go free but will need a ticket. Anyone under the age of 16 does not need a ticket. You can buy your tickets via TicketSource.

There will be a range of 35 beers from eight different breweries according to the festival website.

Mr Wisdom has been contacted for more information.
