Ossett Beercart Festival – 2017

Edward Clay & Son Sponsored Beer wins Champion Beer!

The Ossett Beercart festival is an annual event held this year on the first weekend in June, organised by Wakefield Morris Dancers, raising money for Wakefield Hospice.

The festival is well known for its combination of quality real ale, cider and prosecco, morris dancing, and the Beercart procession – (the only one of it's kind in the world!) starting at the Ossett Cricket and Athletic Club and finishing at the Town Hall.

Edward Clay & Son Ltd sponsored a beer barrel for the event, the unfortunately named ‘Cheating Rat’ which turned out to be voted champion beer at the festival by the Morris dancers.

This year’s event was a great success with hundreds of people turning out to show their support, including some staff from Edward Clay & Son Ltd one of whom can be seen enjoying the company sponsored beer.

The fifth Ossett Beercart Festival will be held on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd June 2018 in Ossett town centre and at Ossett town hall.
