Trunch Crown Beer Festival

I am pleased to be able to finally publish the details of the upcoming beer festival here at the Crown, it has been arranged to have minimal impact on the local residents but have maximum effect on the village economy with 50% of the proceeds from entry going to the Trunch Church Fund.

From 9am on Friday 2nd August 2019 access from Knapton road onto The Hill and the small triangle section of ‘no mans land’ will be closed off, like wise access from North Walsham Road into Front Street/The Hill will be closed, the residents of Front Street will still have full access to their properties with their vehicles. Anyone effected with parking by the closure of the triangle area, Mr and Mrs Cornish have very kindly given permission for use of the paddock behind Vine Cottage, this will also be used for parking for patrons of the beer festival with plenty of signage put in place, Traffic will be diverted away from Front Street and will use Back Street as an alternative through route.

The live music schedule for the event is as follows;

Friday 2nd August 4pm -9.30pm

Saturday 3rd August 4pm – 10pm

Sunday 4th August 2pm – 9pm

Besides the Live music there will be children’s entertainers from 12 o clock Saturday, A hog roast and Pizza van, cream teas and cakes available throughout the day in the church yard.

Anyone with any concerns or questions is invited to The Crown from 7pm on Monday 8th July and I will be able to talk you through a more detailed plan and hopefully alleviate any concerns
