The annual Frocester Beer Festival is run in conjuction with Frocester Cricket Club at the cricket club's ground in the hamlet of Frocester near Stonehouse, Stroud. The Frocester Beer Festival is an all-ticket event taking place every August bank holiday weekend and the 2013 Festival will be the 34th. There is parking and a camp-site (with public amenities, but non reservable pitches), a stage with a complete programme of live music throughout the festival, hot food, and most importantly, over 100 different cask-conditioned real ales from more than 50 breweries around the UK. There is also a large selection of wines along with cider and perry. Over the years this event has proved to be a highlight in many people's calendar, and has been a very successful way for us to raise further money for charity.
The 34th Frocester Beer Festival will take place on 23rd&24th Aug 2013
On the 23rd it will be open from 6 to 11pm and on the 24th from 11.00am to 11 pm

A barbeque area is provided and this is the only area where naked flames are permitted.
You must park and camp as directed
Please keep the campsite tidy and use the bins provided!
