All profits from the event and ticket sales will be donated to our Charitable Trust. To date, the Charitable Trust has raised more than £1,000,000 – and we’re determined to build on the success of its first 20 years, so that we can give back to our communities – from Land’s End to Bath.



Quality that speaks for itself.


If a job's worth doing, make it a proper job.


The coast is our compass.


Hopping mad about good beer.

Ask for Angela is an innovative campaign enabling those who feel vulnerable in pubs and clubs to discreetly approach a member of staff and request assistance. The scheme will be available at this year’s Great British Beer Festival. The ‘Ask for Angela’ initiative aims to reduce sexual violence and vulnerability by providing visitors to the festival with a non-descript phrase they can use to gain assistance from staff members in order to be separated from the company of someone with whom they feel unsafe due to that person’s actions, words or behaviour.
