#NameTheAle Carnival Ale Competition by Wye Valley Brewery

Can You #NameTheAle?

Name the Carnival Ale & Win the Chance to Brew It

The Wye Valley Brewery is running a fantastic competition to celebrate the 4/5 May 2018 Hereford River Carnival.

The Hereford River Carnival is a day of fun for everyone, celebrating the beauty & vitality of the River Wye, and the like that it brings to the city of Hereford.

Since it was reintroduced in 2014, the Carnival has grown to become Herefordshire’s biggest feelgood family event. 15,000 people turned up in 2017 to sing, dance, make masks and carnival costumes, eat great local food and generally have fun messing about on the beautiful River Wye.

Organizers of the event have teamed up with Wye Valley Brewery to offer the chance to not only name the Carnival beer, but to also brew it alongside Wye Valley Brewery’s head brewer. The winner (and a friend) will also receive a complimentary lunch, beer goodies, and a tutored tasting of Wye Valley Brewery’s cask and keg beers.

 

This year’s beer name should be based on the River Carnival’s ‘World on the Wye’ theme. Similarly to last year’s triumphant ‘Thirsty Mermaid’, we are looking for a name inspired by the creatures that decorate the Mappa Mundi as they go out to explore the world.

The Hereford River Carnival will take place on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th May 2018 and promises to be bigger than ever, with even more music, great food and drink for all the family, and all the usual Carnival favourites.

The closing date for beer name ideas is Tuesday 6th March 2018.

The winner will then be invited to enjoy their brewery day experience with a friend on
Tuesday 20th March.

Winners will be notified by Saturday 10th March 2018.

Join our Business 100 Club

Hereford River Carnival is a charity (part of the Plynlimon Trust) run entirely by volunteers and although we actively and successfully seek funding from groups like Children in Need, the Arts Council and Heritage Lottery Fund and get local support from groups like the City Council, we need funds to make the Carnival happen. 

Particularly we need funds to fulfil one of our main aims and ensure that the Carnival is open to everyone

Be a part of the Business 100 Club

This is where you come in.  We realise that some smaller businesses would like to make a contribution to make the River Carnival happen but cannot afford large sponsorship packages.  That’s why we’ve created the Hereford River Carnival Business 100 Club for those businesses that want to support us in some way.

What’s in it for you?

  • Your business and brand promoted through our website, social media and to 12,000+ visitors
  • Giving vital charitable support for one of Hereford’s brightest, best-loved, award-winning events that’s open to everyone
  • The chance to hear about news and events before anyone else via our online newsletter
  • Reduced priced tickets for other Carnival events
  • Your logo on the Carnival website and a link to your own website
  • Two tickets to the champagne reception on the morning of the Carnival
  • The chance to support something fantastic in your community

Put simply, if 100 Herefordshire businesses give us £100 that would go a huge way to ensuring the Carnival goes ahead and will enable us to do more work with schools and to stage more community making and music workshops which take place all over Hereford and are open to all.  They give everyone regardless of their background the chance to get involved in the build up to Carnival as well as on the day.

Profile on social media and via our website

Of course, you can give us more if you are able to and all contributions will be acknowledged on our website with a link back through to your site.  We’ll also publicise your support through social media and be happy to work with you on promoting your business to our followers and friends.

Be a part of something brilliant
