Award-winning local breweries, Loddon Brewery and Loose Cannon, are the festival’s joint sponsors for 2023.

As part of their sponsorship, the two breweries have collaborated again to produce two exclusive beers for BunkFest. These beers were so successful in the past, they sold out before the end of the festival.

However, do not worry! This year, the production of these two beers has been increased, so look out for BunkFest Amber and BunkFest Pale!


There are two bars on the festival site on the Kinecroft:

  1. The BEER TENT
    Offering a selection of over 20 beers as varied as the artists at the festival, with an emphasis on local independent breweries.
    Adjacent to the main stage, this bar will be exclusively selling our sponsors’ BunkFest Bitter and BunkFest Pale.

Both bars will also sell a selection of ciders, wine and soft drinks.

Opening Times

• Friday 12:00 pm (noon) – 11:00 pm
• Saturday 11:00 am – 11:00 pm
• Sunday 12:00 pm (noon) – 10:00 pm

Ordering your beer

Beers are arranged alphabetically behind the bar. For quicker service, choose beers that are alphabetically close to where you are queuing! Our bar staff are all volunteers, so please be kind to them and be patient at busy times. If you are visiting us on Sunday, then please be prepared for the choice of beer to diminish as the day progresses.

New to real ale?

If you’re new to real ale then consult our ‘Tasting Notes’ which will be available at the bar.

Local beer is best!

As well as the excellent beers supplied by Loddon and Loose Cannon, we have a variety of local independent breweries close to Wallingford producing some excellent beers.

Lager drinker?

Do not despair, we have plenty of locally brewed chilled lager available throughout the weekend.

Cider drinker?

We have a great range of real ciders available from a number of producers. These include Tutt’s Clump from Berkshire and Red Dog Cider in Benson. These are complimented by the ever-popular Weston’s ciders from Herefordshire.

Wine and soft drinks

A range of wine and soft drinks are also available.

Re-usable souvenir beer glasses

Since 2012 we have only sold drinks in reusable souvenir glasses. By doing so, we have considerably reduced our waste generation. It also means you spill less of your pints because the souvenir glasses are far more robust.

The continued sponsorship of these glasses is kindly given by a local firm and Wallingford residents, Julian & Debbie Walley, at Winterbrook Sales and Letting agents in Wallingford town.

You will be able to buy the glasses from the merchandise area clearly signposted by the beer tent and from the Festival Shop.
