We hope to return in 2021…


St. Giles’ Church, Copmanthorpe


– Previous Festivals –


2021, we hope, will be our 7th festival after missing out 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With the world still in an uncertain situation due to the virus, 2021’s festival isn’t yet confirmed.

Should we be able to safely run the festival in 2021, this is what you can expect..

As well as around 30 cask beers and ciders, the prosecco bar will return along with the gin bar too.

Pie and peas, courtesy of Ged Bell, will be available and each night a variety of bands and vocalists will entertain. In between each act, an illusionist and body-language expert will be making his way around too.

We’ll be looking out for kind sponsors again – our aim is to get each and every cask sponsored which means we can help more local charities and good causes.


To date, Coptoberfest has raised over £20,000 for charities and good causes in the Copmanthorpe and surrounding areas.

The main beneficiaries each year are St. Leonards Hospice (Tadcaster Road) and St. Gile’s Church (Copmanthorpe) with a variety of others too.

If you represent a local charity or good cause, please contact us to state your case and the Coptoberfest committee will review each and every request. We can’t say yes to everyone unfortunately, but we certainly do plan to return in 2021 for more fundraising, and great beer of course.
