Flora Simpson, Senior Fundraiser at Henshaws highlighted ‘’We are so excited to invite the community into our unique and special space at the the Arts and Crafts Centre. It is the perfect festival site, offering a large stage area, undercover spaces, and both outdoor and indoor seating. We want to express our sincere gratitude for the local sponsors, especially the title sponsor, Evelyn Partners, and the collaborative efforts of the local breweries who without the event wouldn’t be possible or as successful.’’

Heather Pearman a regular Henshaws volunteer said "It was my first-time volunteering at Henshaws at the Beer Festival in 2023 and I have to admit I can’t wait to volunteer again! If you're thinking about volunteering, I urge you to volunteer at Henshaws as you feel at ease straightaway and I had such a sense of pride being part of an amazing company and community."
