    A new Charity Beer Festival takes place on Friday 27 and Saturday 28th April 2012. The North Leeds Charity Beer Festival is being held at St Aidan's Community Hall, Roundhay Road, Leeds, LS8 5QD. This joint venture between the Rotary Club of Roundhay and the Lord Mayor of Leeds aims to raise funds for both fantastic charities.

    We are sourcing over 30 interesting and unusual cask ales to showcase micro and independent breweries from around Yorkshire. We will have offerings from many local brewers as well as some Yorkshire beers that are not often seen around the Leeds area.

    The doors open to the North Leeds Charity Beer Festival at 6pm on the Friday evening.

    ******BREAKING NEWS******

    Brewery Line up confirmed including:
    Great Heck
    Brooklyn (NY)

    We were preparing a SPECIAL BREW at Great Heck on Wednesday this Week

    We have also imported two casks from Brooklyn Brewery (NY):
    American double IPA - BLAST(8%)
    Mary's Maple Stout

    Probably the only place in Yorkshire / UK that you will be able to sample these beers

    See you at the NORTH LEEDS CHARITY BEER FESTIVAL on 27-28 April 2012 at St Aidan's Community Hall, Roundhay Road, Leeds, LS8 5QD.

    The North Leeds Charity Beer Festival is raising funds of the Lord Mayor's Charity - Voluntary Action Leeds.

    (VAL) is the Council for Voluntary Service in Leeds. Providing innovative and direct support, services and specialist advice to hundreds of Third Sector organisations, helping them to carry out their work across Leeds.

    Funds are also being raised for the Rotary Club of Roundhay. This allows continued support in the local area including a poly-tunnel project at John Jamieson School, providing sports equipment to Gipton Together, and sponsoring a teenager on the Ocean Youth Trust.

    Later this month we will be helping young people of Chapeltown attend a PeaceJam at Bradford University. PeaceJam introduces teenagers to International Nobel Peace Laureates, as positive role models and equips them with practical good citizenship, leadership, sustainability and community skills.

    The Rotary Club of Roundhay have also introduced a Butterfly Garden Project to Nurseries and Primary Schools for the first time this year. The Project will develop awareness of bees & insects, gardening and natural surroundings.

    Further afield The Rotary Club of Roundhay has helped in the eradication of Polio. We have also sent disaster boxes to Haiti following the earthquake in 2010.

    More information can be found on the Rotary Club of Roundhay website.

    The North Leeds Charity Beer Festival opens it's doors at 6pm on Friday 27th April 2012 - you don't need to purchase advance tickets. However we will be operating a first-come first-served basis.


    Entry is £2, free to CAMRA, SPBW members with valid membership.
