WELCOME TO THE NORTH LEEDS CHARITY BEER FESTIVAL


WE’RE BACK! – A very warm welcome to you to the 10th Annual North Leeds Charity Beer Festival, after an unintended break of two years due to the pandemic.


The Festival is run for the Rotary Club of Roundhay and in addition to celebrating our 10th Festival the Rotary Club celebrates its 60th anniversary this year so we are celebrating these two events.


Once again we are presenting a good selection of locally brewed beers, along with our popular Gin and Prosecco Bar and our bar staff look forward to serving you some delicious brews. We are following all guidelines for hosting the event during the threat of Covid.


A great programme of music, from jazz to hard rock is being showcased by a number of local bands for your enjoyment.


Over the years we have served 8,500 discerning drinkers with over 50,000 glasses of beer and have staged 110 performances by local bands and artistes with over 420 musicians involved. These efforts have enabled us to donate over £50,000, the entire proceeds to local, national and international charities. The local charities to benefit include John Jamieson School, Cash for Kids, CATCH Harehills, St Gemma’s and Roundhay Stroke Club.


The event is run on an entirely voluntary basis and we thank all volunteers, whether it be serving beer, dishing up pie and peas, selling tokens or helping with the set up and break down of the event. A special thank you to Sam Parker for his work on organising the beers, and for personally tasting and approving each one!


We have fantastic support from our sponsors, our headline sponsors being Morley Glass and Glazing and Express in the Home, and all our individual barrel sponsors. Please give them your support. Thanks also to our hosts, North Leeds Cricket Club for the use of the premises.

Ian Short, Managing Director of Morley Glass says: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor the 10th Annual North Leeds Charity Beer Festival.  This is exactly the type of initiative we like to be involved with as it perfectly reflects our ethos of giving back to local communities. I personally will be rolling up my sleeves and helping alongside the Rotarians and I am very much looking forward to the event. I wish NLBF and the Rotary Club of Roundhay every success.”

We would also like acknowledge the support of our individual sponsors and advertisers whose contribution is invaluable.

North Leeds Cricket Club open their doors at 6pm on Friday and from 12noon on Saturday. The cost of entry is £10, however you can get a £2 discount by booking your tickets in advance online – members of CAMRA or SPBW will get a £2 discount regardless.  The ticket price entitles you to a special festival pack which includes a commemorative beer glass, programme and two beer tokens, with extra tokens available for £2. For your convenience both card and cash payments are accepted during the festival.

We will be announcing further details of the 2022 North Leeds Charity Beer Festival via our website and social media channels so please follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page to keep in touch.


Finally we thank you for your support in attending the festival and in helping us to help others within our community.
