Tatworth Beer Festival ‘well supported’ by local community

0

A POPULAR beer festival in Tatworth has returned for its ninth annual event on Good Friday and Easter Saturday, with a range of Somerset ales, cider and live entertainment.

Over 100 people enjoyed eight Somerset-produced beers, a local cider and a sold-out barbecue at Tatworth Playing Fields.

They were entertained by Nick Fowler’s vinyl night on Friday, and there was live music from indie-folk artist Elijah Wolf on Saturday night.

Tatworth Beer Festival is organized by the Tatworth Playgrounds committee and a group of volunteers.

A spokesperson for the committee said the event was ‘well supported by the village community’ and added: ‘We would like to thank all members of the Tatworth Playing Fields committee and our group of volunteers for making this event such a success.”

Tatworth Playing Fields is a registered charity owned by the village and operated on a voluntary basis by the management committee.

Since the management committee took control of the playgrounds in 1973, tennis courts, a children’s play area and a safe route to school have been added.

One of the tennis courts was then adapted into a MUGA sports surface.

The committee does not receive board funding and is a self-funded charity.

The next Tatworth Playing Fields Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place in June.
