The Hall & Woodhouse beer festival returns for a third year!

Beer Festival

Last year’s beer festival at the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery in Blandford, Dorset was an outstanding success and this year’s event on 26th September at the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery, Blandford, Dorset – hopes to raise even more money for charity! 

“Last year was such a huge success with over £4,335 amount raised for Macmillan Cancer Support we thought we would do it all again this year! However with so many charities to choose from we let the festival organising committee nominate which charity we should support,”   explained Head Brewer at Hall & Woodhouse, Toby Heasman. “It was a tough call to make, so one charity became four! This year we are pleased to announce that we will be supporting Dorset Air Ambulance, Alzheimer’s Society, Teddy 20 and the Blandford Opportunity group”.

We have new music from a Dorset based band ‘Selective Hearing’ playing classics from the 50’s to the present day. The ‘Mother Ukers’ return with their take on modern day classics with their ukuleles and ‘forge them into timeless wonders of a bygone era with the power of ‘Ukular Fusion’ warping time and space.

As well as music, visitors can enjoy some hearty festival fare and for those eager to watch England battle it out against Wales in the Rugby World Cup, we will also be showing the match live from 8pm! 

There’s even more for you to try this year, with 40 delicious beers and ciders from local brewers and cider producers. As well as old Badger favourites, we have brewed some new beers especially for the occasion, which will no doubt tickle the taste buds of loyal Badger fans.

Tickets costing £5 are available on line at and there will be a LIMITED number of tickets available on the day. All money raised will be split evenly between all the named charities above.
