We are thrilled to have been chosen as charity beneficiary for Tynemouth Beer Festival this year, taking part from the 6th - 8th of September at Tynemouth Cricket Club in North Shields.
Beer and cider fans will have plenty to choose from as the festival is offering a choice of 50 beers and 20 ciders, with a percentage of the profits being donated to us.
As well as the wide choice of beer and cider on offer, there will also be hot food, a gin and spirit trailer and a selection of wines available. Guests will be kept entertained by 4 live acts over the weekend, including Steve Daggett (who will be playing 60’s and 70’s classics), and soul and R’n’B band The Stax Brothers,
Steve Mordue, one of the organisers of Tynemouth Beer Festival said:
We are pleased to be supporting St Oswald's at our beer festival this year. We recognise the excellent work they do for people with life-limiting conditions in the North East and wanted to give something back. We work closely with young people at the Cricket Club to help them feel welcome and feel part of a community giving them the option of trying new things. We believe St Oswald’s has very similar values in their Children’s Hospice trying to make the most out of life.
The festival will have a wide choice of beers and ciders as well as spirits and wines, so we are confident there will be something to suit everyone’s tastes. We also have some great live acts to entertain us over the weekend, including The Stax Brothers, and Irish folk and pop band Shamrock Street.
Katy Taberham, Senior Fundraiser at St Oswald’s Hospice, said
We are thrilled Tynemouth Beer Festival has named us as charity of choice. This is a great event for festival fans and we look forward to being a part of the weekend.
Events like these raise awareness of the Hospice and help provide people with relevant information about what hospice’s do. We need to raise £7.5m a year to help us continue to support our patients, as well as their families and carers.
