Polzeath Beer & Music Festival

Polzeath Beer & Music Festival sponsored by St Austell Brewery

Polzeath Beer Festival 2018 Roundup

After a tropical June and July the weather just had to change in time for our 6th Annual Beer Festival gusty winds and rain duly arrived, but once again it did not stop the crowds from coming along to sample some great beers and listen to some fabulous music.

Friday night’s entertainment kicked off with Me and The Devil, which was a great toe tapping start to the festival.  Our great food and drink stalls smiled despite the elements and produced some gorgeous food and drinks for the festival revellers.  The bands continued through the evening with Citizen Smith rocking out some classic tunes, Echo Town bought the didgerdoo and some funky beats, followed by an all singing and dancing (quite literally) finish by Tankslapper.

Our overnight security team were kept busy in the early hours of Saturday morning saving various gazebos that tried to take flight to Polzeath Beach in the gale force winds… that however did not stop George setting up his Kinsford Champagne stall again on the Saturday…a great effort.

Saturday’s sell out golf competition started in sunshine, but was interrupted by some  showers but fun was had by all 112 golfers.  Congratulations to Chris Jennings and his team on winning the competition.  John Thorpe started off Saturday with his didge, followed by some Cornish Folk music by Will Keating.  There was plenty of Bio-Glitter courtesy of the lovely Lauren Taylor to keep the festival spirit going as well as some rather funky circus training for the children (and some adults!).  The Stowes carried on the music and they did not disappoint with their lively Cornish tunes.  Josh Curnow kept the momentum going with some well-known tunes and his truly fantastic original song pieces.  The Roustabouts wowed the crowds with their funky songs and epic moves, followed by local band Grizzly Millions who got the crowd  jumping, while Backbeat Soundsystem rounded off a great day in style.

We would like to thank all the bands, St Austell Brewery, Tarquins Gin, Knightor Wines, Sauce Cocktail Bar, Fizz Fellas, Kinsford Champagne, Rise and Grind and Elseafood for coming along and supporting us.  A big thank you to Foz Foster for the staging, Alive Music for once again looking after all the bands and doing a fabulous job, all bar staff and staff at The Point for working so hard, friends and family that leant a hand through the weekend – it would not be possible without you all!

Another thank you to all that donated to our wonderful raffle. This helped raise in excess of £2000 which is just amazing. The funds raised will be going to Cornwall Community Foundation Trust and the Anaphylaxsis Campaign, see links below.

Over the last 6 years we have raised in excess of £12,000 for some great causes, which is terrific achievement and a huge credit to all in the community.

Thank you to you all for coming and your continued support and we hope to see you all soon.

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. Over the last 4 years (5 events) we are very proud to have raised in excess of £10.000 for a number of charities.

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, as well as Anaphalxsis

Dig out your dancing shoes and sunglasses… we are full steam ahead with this year’s preparations, the line-up for this year is looking as great as ever – we also have a few new treats in store for you.

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.

Second year running St Austell Brewery will be sponsoring the festival. We will feature local beers and lagers as well as a great selection guest beers. For those who prefer the grape variety we will have Vondeling wines, fizz cocktails from Fizz Fellas as well as Cornish Tarquin Gin. There will be plenty of non alcoholic drinks available.

Face painting is not just for the young! We all love a bit of fun - and this year will be no different.

On Saturday we will also have a golf net for the youngster to have a go and our Pro Phil Brookes is there to give them a helping hand.
