Community news: Frocester Festival


By Maggi Mukasa

A double rainbow, torrential rain and claps of thunder all made the Frocester Festival an interesting day. Despite the weather nothing dampened the spirits of the people who attended Frocester Festival.

Previously known as The Frocester Beer Festival, the organisers have made several changes since Covid. Taking it back to grass roots the event now takes place on one day and a game of cricket, which was a large part of the original festivals back in the early 1980s has been reintroduced.

In addition to watching cricket there were over thirty-one beers, fourteen ciders, numerous gins, Pimms and wine on offer. The crowd were fed with Frocester Fayre burgers, Niangs Thai Street Food, Pigs Pizzas, and Bakewell coffee and cakes.

The fun filled afternoon had an excellent array of music, with the JP All Stars Brass band kicking off the proceedings. A Spice Girls tribute band played later in the day followed by Kick The Cat who kept the revellers dancing. 

Family entertainment was provided with the children playing on a bouncy castle and there was a lot of face painting. It was surprising how many adults ended up with sparkly faces!

The Frocester Festival donates to local charities and good causes. This year we are pleased to be supporting Whitminster Cricket Club who are raising funds to rebuild their pavilion as their current one has been condemned.

A lot of work goes into putting on this event and there is an excellent group of brilliant volunteers and club members who give their time freely. Without them the festival would not be possible.
