Polzeath Beer & Music Festival Polzeath Beer & Music Festival sponsored by St Austell Brewery Save the date: July 27th & 28th 2018 After a successful (be it a bit damp) festival at the end of July 2017, we are busy finalising the bands and entertainment for 2018. Updates will be made on this page regularly. The Point at Polzeath launched Polzeath Beer Festival in 2013 as a small charity event with live music showcasing mainly local bands, family entertainment and of course a range of beverages. Becoming a huge hit straight away with beer selling out on the opening night – the event has doubled in size since the beginning. Still a charity event, we work with St Austell Brewery who have supported us the last two years. Over the last 4 years (5 events) we have raised in excess of £10.000 for a number of charities including Children’s Hospice South West, FLEET and MacMillan Cancer Support, the Bella Rose Appeal Fund, Pancreatic Cancer UK (Cancer Research UK), The Cornish Air Ambulance, The British Heart foundation and Riding for the Disabled. The 2018 Polzeath Beer and Music Festival will support and raise funds for the The Cornwall Community Foundation supporting local communities across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. You can find more information about their work by clicking on the above link to their website. 2017 roundup Another year..another fab Polzeath Beer and Music Festival! The weather was not on our side this year but it did not stop the fun, laughter and dancing. We are absolutely delighted that despite the weather we have raised in excess of £2300 for our charities which is just amazing. So a massive thank you to everyone for your support. We would not be able to put this event on each year without the help of so many wonderful people – Foz Foster scaffolding, Western Office Equipment, @cornwall conveinences, Absolute Canvas, Southwest Bars and Events, Simon Bertho, John Treglown and all at St Austell Brewery, Newton’s Appl Fizzics, Aussie Tukka, Fizz Fellas Prosecco Cart, Jubël, Sea Sea SodhiPancake Shack, Tarquin’s Gin from Southwestern Distillery, Gary Dutton Butchers, Lauren Taylor for her marvellous faceprinting, Tom Collins and his greenkeepers, all the staff at The Point at Polzeath who work their socks off for the 2 days and most of all YOU the people who come and make the event. The Bands this year were incredible, brilliantly supported by Alive Music. Jean Tatam deserves a huge thank you for arranging a marvellous raffle and braved the elements to raise some serious money for the British Heart Foundation. Last but not least Green Gecko for helping us clear everything up. The Golf competition was another great success and thank you to Libby Lehan and the Golf team for all their support. Our 3 generation maintenance team worked tirelessly to make sure that everything was under control. 2018 will be positively tropical, so we look forward to seeing you on the 27th and 28th July 2018. 2017 LINE UP Friday 28th July 5.30pm – Disco Kernow 7pm – Wailin’s Super Group 9pm – Neon Lightning 10.30pm – Black Friday Band Saturday 29th July 1pm – The Stowes 3pm – Motown Pirates 4.30pm – Josh Curnow 6pm – Jamie Hewitt 7pm – Loco 9pm – Go Go Skank 10.30pm – Tankslapper This is a Charity Event and we will be charging a small entry fee of £15 for the weekend to cover the cost of setting up.

The Cornwall Air Ambulance flies more than 700 lifesaving missions each year throughout Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. It does not receive any government funding for these rescue missions and so relies on the generosity of the public and organisations. In addition we will also be raising funds to Riding for the Disabled and the British Heart Foundation. We are looking forward to summer sunshine, family entertainment and a great weekend. Beer Festival 2016 Friday night was chillier than we had hoped for, but did not stop the crowds turning up for the first evening to enjoy the live music, BBQ and great ales. With the beautiful weather on Saturday and live music kicking off at 1.30 it turned out to be a great day out for families and music lovers. An amazing £3200 was raised for our two charities Cancer Research UK and the Bella Rose Appeal Fund. We would like to thank St Austell Brewery for their great support, the bands for great music and entertainment, all the stands and staff, and of course all the visitors who made this so special.
