Cran-Bury Beer and Music Festival 2018 This Weekend

Hutton Cranswick residents are gearing up for the second annual Cran-Bury Beer and Music festival this weekend, which promises fun for all the family with a children’s entertainer, glitter face painting, and live music.

The festival, which is due to take place on Saturday 28th July 2018, was initially created to fundraise for Hutton Cranswick’s annual village show.

Organisers had originally intended that Cran-Bury would be a one-off, but decided to make it an annual event on the same weekend as the show, making what Kylie Bowden calls “a real villagey weekend!”

“Cran-Bury came about last year,” explained Kylie, who is one of the event’s main organisers alongside Scott Tomlinson.

“I had been on the village show committee for a couple of years and we relied heavily on sponsorship and funding from our parish council, but the aim was to be self-funding and to make the show bigger and better.

“We wanted to make it a fun, free day out for all the family.

“That’s when Scott and I decided to run a separate event with the proceeds going to support the show.

“Last year, we pulled in a lot of favours and relied heavily on people’s generosity with it being a fundraising event.

“This year, we can’t be as cheeky!

“In order to make the numbers work, we have increased our capacity and are starting the festival earlier, with the support of the parish council.

“Last year, we had a capacity of 500, but this year we’ve applied for a license to include up to 1000 people, including staff.

“The earlier start time will allow us to provide more free entertainment for the children without deviating from the live music line-up and the beer festival.

“We are hopeful that this year we can raise enough funds to donate to the village show and have surplus funds to donate to other causes within the village.”

Live music will kick off at 5pm

The festival opens at 3pm and is due to wrap up at around 11:30pm.

Along with a magician and free glitter face painting, there will be bouncy castles for the children.

The live music will kick off at 5pm with acoustic musician Dean Fox and Scarborough-based band Soul Rida.

“The highlight of the night will of course be our resident DJ’s, local lads Tarz and Jarv!” laughed Kylie.

There will also be a bar selling a large collection of real ales and cider, and a burger van.

Organising the festival has been a labour of love for Kylie and Scott, especially because both have welcomed new additions to their families in the last year.

Kylie has recently given birth to a baby boy, and Scott welcomed twin boys in November.
“It is a great deal of work for Scott and I trying to do it alongside working and our busy family lives, so we were over the moon with how people got behind us last year.

“It made all our late nights and hard work worthwhile!” said Kylie.

“Last year, we couldn’t have done it without the support of our sponsors and we were overwhelmed by how many we had.

“This year, we need sponsors more than ever and have some fantastic sponsorship packages on offer.”
