This year, we’re again supporting the Oxted Beer Festival as we have done for the previous two years. We’re sponsoring “Trenchman’s Hop” from local micro-brewery, the Godstone Brewers. Apart from beer, the Oxted Beer festival boasts an outstanding variety of musicians and performers, both local and more widely known bands, such as Saturday night’s headline act – renowned 90’s band, Reef. The Oxted Beer festival has been running since 2012 and raises money for charities & local community projects as well as providing a fun weekend of food, music, sport, entertainment and of course beer.
