Get your ticket for the Fordhall Beer and Music Festival

We will be demonstrating the best Shropshire and Staffordshire have to offer at our Beer and Music Festival in a few weeks time.

With 12 hours of music (folk, rock and blues), 10 bands, 15 local ales and a Fordhall BBQ feast what more could you ask for. Come and join is in the beautiful Tern Valley for a relaxing and enjoyable day in the country. Bring a balnket, a chair, some ball games, your wellies and settle yourself for the day.

And if you want to keep drinking, why not bring your tent and camp!?

Advance tickets only £10 (£12 on the door). Under 14's free!

Thank You to our Supporters!
Not so long ago we held a free thank you BBQ in the Fordhall farmhouse garden for all our supporters. Over 150 of you came along. It was great to see some old faces and some new ones. Ben cooked the traditional hog roast and you all had a chance to investigate the new buildings (part funded through you and the Rural Development Programme for England). It makes such a change to have the time to speak to you all properly. Alot of you also travelled some distance, which made us feel very priviledged - thank you. We look forward to seeing at Fordhall over the rest of the Summer.

Hi Charlotte,

Just a quick Email to say thank you for organising a lovely Fordhall supporters BBQ afternoon in the farmhouse garden on the 7th August. I really enjoyed the afternoon. It was great to visit the farm again and to talk to lots of other people who have a similar desire for Fordhall to prosper and succeed. Good to talk to you and Ben too. I always enjoy our chats. On returning home a roast joint of Gloucester old spot was ready, which I picked up on my last visit, so it really was a Fordhall experience day for me on the 7th August. Enjoyed the beef joint I came back with on the 7th yesterday and again for lunch today.

Just seen y’all on Midlands Today – all looked good including the pigs trying to knock Ben over. Tonight’s studio presenter clearly has fond memories of his interview with your Dad. He has been on Midlands Today for years so has interviewed many many people but his conversation with your Dad did seem special to him from what he said at the end.

Take care and thanks again for a lovely afternoon

With best wishes

David, Gloucestershire

To the Fordhall Team

Just a note to say a huge thank you to Ben, Charlotte and all the core team at Fordhall for all your hard work in organising the superb BBQ for supporters on Sunday. The setting in your own garden was idyllic and both myself and my partner Beverley very much enjoyed the occasion - excellent food, wonderful company and even the weather was kind! I'm looking forward to the Beer & Music Festival already.
Kind regards,

Dear Charlotte and Ben, thank you so much for a lovely day last Sunday. This was
our first visit to your farm and we were very impressed with all the work you had
done, especially the tearoom and farmshop - we are sure this will prove a big asset
to your farm. Special thanks for the hog roast -it was delicious. Many thanks
