POSTPONED Sausage & Beer Festival 2020
Following announcements from the government and having approached local authorities regarding the feasibility of this year’s Sausage and Beer Festival, we are taking the tough decision to postpone the event. It was clear that the scale of what we were allowed to deliver would just not compare with previous years and primarily, the safety of you and our staff had to come first, despite our best of intentions. But, in an effort to help you salvage your summer, we would like to give everyone an opportunity to take that much needed break that you hoped for so we have come up with some options below.
What is next...
- We currently have 70 S&B festival tickets that include a camping pitch (ordinarily there would be in the region of 500 pitches). Several of you have asked if you can just come and camp, so what we would like to propose is to open our camping facilities exclusively to those who have bought camping tickets and throw in an extra night on the Thursday 23rd too. There is so much to do, so much to explore quite apart from the usual facilities, including the Old Hay Barn pub, Footgolf and Woodland Kingdom. If you intend to join us that weekend please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ticket details.
- For customers who did not buy a camping pitch, we are already scoping postponement dates for 2021 and will honour any tickets already purchased, effectively rolling them into next year. This allows us to create an event worthy of its name and build on the huge success of previous years on more certain footing. Whilst we will do refunds, we hope by asking you to hold on to your ticket you will help support our family owned and run business during this difficult time.
- Camp Hill, like so many other places, have diversified to react to the impact that Covid-19 has had on our normal strand of business. For this summer….. with 300 acres of outstanding natural environment – with so much to see, even more to explore and so many new things to try…..we have expanded our glamping operation now offering short stays in our Hill Farm Bell Tents and Chestnut Lodge Group Accommodation.

We appreciate this will be disappointing news for many, but we feel it’s the right thing to do under the circumstances. We hope you are all staying safe and well and look forward to seeing you all soon.
