AmityFest: Family fun day returns to Farsley

Farsley craft brewery Amity Brew Co has announced its family fun day will be making a bigger and better return this summer at Sunny Bank Mills.

The beer, food and live music festival, AmityFest, attracted over 3,000 visitors last year and returns to the Weavers Yard in the heart of Farsley from 5 – 7 July. 

Partnering with The Principle Trust Children’s Charity, Amity is dedicating Sunday 7 July to a family filled fun day. There will be activities including free face painting, a bouncy castle, and outdoor games and crafts hosted by the charity. 

The charity will coordinate the children’s craft tent, dressing up box and children friendly mascots will provide fun, jam-packed activities for children. 

Established in 2011 by Mike Davies, MBE, The Principle Trust Children’s Charity based in Skipton, serves families throughout Yorkshire, providing free respite breaks to children who are underprivileged, disadvantaged, disabled, have life-limiting conditions, or who have experienced poverty, trauma or abuse.

Charity Founder and Chairman Mike Davies MBE said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Amity Brew Co for the craft beer festival that brings delight to children in West Leeds. We’ll be collecting donations on the day and have a raffle filled with local prizes. The Trust’s 100% donation policy means that every penny raised will fund respite holidays for dozens of needy children and their families.”

There will be a large beer tent for adults holding many different breweries showcasing a range of vibrant and refreshing beers. The breweries include Kirkstall Brewery, Sierra Nevada, Northern Monk, Indie Rabble, Rivington, Neptune, Fierce, Anthology, Good Chemistry, Futurestate, Roosters, Duration and Lakes.

The festival will also have gin from John Roberts and cider from Nightingales plus street food trucks from Farsley Fire And Smoke, Little Bao, Homeboys Pizza. To top it off, there will be live music and DJs all weekend.

Amity prides itself on being family friendly, as parents themselves, the founders were very keen to ensure families felt included. Director Rich Degnan says: “We wanted to partner with a charity that added value to our festival offering but also supported children in the local area. 

“From our baby change filled with free products to our easy parking and access, we pride ourselves on being a place to come with kids and feel welcomed. We can’t wait for the family day to show our customers a brilliant time.”

Tickets are available now, children are free with a paying ticket.
