Straw Bear Festival 2018

Straw Bear Festival, Whittlesea 13th, 14th & 15th January 2017.

In Whittlesea it was the custom on the Tuesday following Plough Monday (the 1st Monday after Twelfth Night) to dress one of the confraternity of the plough in straw and call him a ‘Straw Bear’.

The tradition was revived in the 1980’s and this years’ Straw Bear Festival promises to be a great occasion. To celebrate, Elgood’s has produced our own  ‘Straw Beer’ a light, golden ale, well hopped with a full refreshing flavour.

Elgood’s Beer Festival a Great Success

We are delighted to report a very successful Beer Festival this year.  More than 900 people attended over the three days of the festival.  Over 150 beers were available, offering everything from refreshing low-alcohol ales to stunning high ABV porters and stouts.

Entertainment was provided by old favourites Dr Busker and Bewildered as well as up and coming local band Animal Bar.  Local folk band The Rusty Relics played for the Saturday afternoon session and were very well received.

The festival, which is in its 7th year, is organised on a not-for-profit basis, using the beers entered for the SIBA East annual beer competition.  All money raised is donated to local charities.  This year £2,000 will be shared between Ravenswood Pet Rescue, Rare Brain Tumour Research, Norfolk Hospice Tapping House and the Ferry Project.

Next year’s festival has already been booked for Thursday 20th to Saturday 22nd September 2018.
