Schofield Sweeny are Wetherby Beer Festival’s official sponsor for the VIP Business Networking Event, which kickstarts the fundraising weekend of April 28-29.
Wetherby Grange Park is planning the town’s largest ever beer festival, aiming to attract thousands from across the region, as part of the huge fund-raising effort to support the rugby, cricket, football and bowling clubs.
With over 45 artisan, local and regional beers, ciders and stouts to sample, organisers are determined to make the event a family affair, with live music, gin bar, champagne lounge, free children’s entertainment and street food concessions for the two-day festival.
Recently joined by Thebusinessdesk.com, the list of business supporters backing the festival is growing.
“I’m delighted that we are sponsoring the Wetherby Beer Festival. We’re a Yorkshire law firm that invests heavily in supporting and engaging with local initiatives. As the Festival’s Business Networking Event sponsor, we’re really looking forward to seeing the professional community come together for an excellent afternoon of entertainment and hospitality.” Adam Hastie, Partner.
Deborah Kelly, chair of Wetherby Beer Festival, added: “The VIP event, which opens the weekend, is already attracting a wide range of sponsors and business guests so to have Schofield Sweeney as the main sponsor is the perfect fit.”
The over-18s only business networking event will take place on the Friday afternoon with Saturday’s ticketed event open to all ages with up to three children, 12 and under, allowed in for free with every paying adult. Doors open 5-11pm on the Friday and noon until 11pm on the Saturday.
