The Springwell Sessions is North's first ever beer festival featuring beers from some of our favourite craft breweries, natural wine, proper coffee, street food and cocktails.
Unfortunately, our ticket provider has filed a moratorium. As a result, all money for our future events has been frozen in their bank accounts, meaning that they can neither issue refunds nor pass the money to us.
This of course, left us feeling shocked. This development has completely blindsided us with them continuing to sell tickets until Monday despite having filed a moratorium on 24th August.
This crowdfunder will allow us to go ahead with the event and protect ticket holders. We will deliver the event that we promised.
The ticket money was being spent on vital infrastructure for the event, including all the important but not very glamorous bits like toilets, fencing etc. and of course lots of amazing beer for you.
In addition to this, we had already raised over £2,000 for our partner charity St. Georges Crypt through this event. We can no longer access this money.
With the support of all the breweries attending Springwell Sessions, we are crowdfunding so that the event can go ahead. We will donate 10% of all money raised to St.Georges Crypt.
It feels tough out there for businesses and households right now, and holding a beer festival in a brewery has never felt more needed. We all need to let off some steam and raise more important funds for charity than ever.
Thanks in advance for any donations; we are down but not out!
