£ 90,000 raised in 18 years of festival fun !




The Ashcott Beer Fest is organised by a Beer Fest committee with the aim to raise funds for the Ashcott School PTA, Cheeky Chimps Pre-school and the Ashcott Playing Field for equipment and facilities for the people of the village. To date our festivals have raised over £70,000 for the good causes that we support.

The 18 festivals have benefitted tremendously from local support and sponsorship and have received compliments from festival goers for the variety and quality of the Beers available and for the all new Somerset Cider Bar.

The Ashcott Beer Fest is designed for family participation, with activities, bands and Beers selected to appeal to all ages, sexes and tastes.

Many activities, food and fun for families on the Saturday lunchtime and afternoon


This years' terrific Beerfest was again held on the Ashcott Village Playing Fields, with remarkably fine weather and many taking advantage of the free camping. More information can be found at the Beerfest website and on our Facebook group.


We look forward to welcoming you to our next festival and please bring your friends.
