North Leeds Charity Beer Festival 2022 on Saturday 9th April 2022
The Diamond Beer Festival
In 2021-2022 The Roundhay Rotary will be celebrating the diamond anniversary of the Club's foundation. To observe this very special milestone The Rotary Club of Roundhay have organised some notable events during the year culminating in this Diamond Beer Festival.
During the pandemic the Rotary Club of Roundhay have been dynamic and creative holding their first ever on-line event the Cy-Beer Festival. However as things get back to the new normal we will be re introducing the annual North Leeds Charity Beer Festival at North Leeds Cricket Club 8-9 April 2022.
To celebrate this milestone we will be dispensing 32 beers from small independent and micro-breweries. The Gin Bar serving incredible gins from small producers, along with new tonics, mixers and tasty botanicals! Fizz will also be available to toast the night away.
The festival is known for some serious entertainment which showcase local Leeds musical talent and 2022 will see past favourites as well as new acts to us. We have a full programme of music playing over the two day festival. To compliment the fine selection of real ale, gin & fizz we will be serving food throughout the Festival.
Since 2012 The Rotary Club of Roundhay’s beer festival has raised many 10’s of thousands of poundsfor charities based locally in Leeds, nationally and Internationally. Local organisations to receive financial support include: St Gemma’s Hospice, John Jamieson School, Roundhay Stroke Club, Catch in Harehills and Leeds Rowing Club based at Roundhay Park Lake, where two rowing machines were funded. Local Rotary programmes including the ocean-going Young Sailor, Young Musician, Young Writer, Young Citizen, Young Chef, Leeds Technology Tournament and Rotary Youth Leadership Award have also received funding from the monies raised. We are indebted to our major sponsors Morley Glass and Glazing Ltd and Express Bi-Folding Doors for their continued support without which the festival wouldn’t take place and the Rotary Club of Roundhay couldn’t fund their worthwhile projects.
Ian Short, Managing Director of Morley Glass says: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor the Rotary Club of Roundhay’s Diamond Beer Festival. This is exactly the type of initiative we like to be involved with as it perfectly reflects our ethos of giving back to local communities. I personally will be rolling up my sleeves and helping alongside the Rotarians and I am very much looking forward to the event. I wish NLBF and the Rotary Club of Roundhay every success.” We would also like acknowledge the support of our individual sponsors and advertisers whose contribution is invaluable. North Leeds Cricket Club open their doors at 5pm on Friday and from 12noon on Saturday. The cost of entry is £10, however you can get a £2 discount by booking your tickets in advance online – members of CAMRA or SPBW will get a £2 discount regardless.
