Henshaws have a specialist college on Bogs Lane in Harrogate along with an Arts & Crafts Centre in Knaresborough.

The college helps young people, aged 16-25, living with a disability to progress and live life the way they want.




Tom Fozard, Commercial Manager at Rooster’s Brewing Co. said:

A charity beer festival showcasing the area’s four independent breweries, while also raising funds for such a great, local organisation as Henshaws is an event we’re proud to be supporting.

The opportunity to join forces with Cold Bath Brewing, Daleside and Harrogate Brewing Co. to brew a one-off beer for the festival also promises to be a lot of fun!

All profits from the event will help Henshaws to support disabled people in the area. The charity runs a range of creative and employability workshops to promote life skills and social skills, supporting them to become more independent in their everyday lives. Disabled people who come to the Arts & Crafts Centre benefit from a sense of community, friendship, wellbeing and a chance to express their creativity.

Tickets to Henshaws Beer Festival cost £12 in advance or £15 on the door and there are two timeslots available; either 12pm to 5pm or 6pm to 11pm. This price includes four half pints of beer, a festival programme and a keepsake glass. There is free entry for accompanied children (under 18s) during the daytime event. The evening session will be adults only.
