Brian Smith Director Festivales Event Bars
Julie Zilwood Festivales Event Bars

We love what we do and we put our all into the events we work with to ensure both the paying customer and organiser is delighted with the result.


We are a family run business with over 30 years experience in providing successful event bars.  Brian has run several successful pubs and started the event bar business, his knowledge is legendary.  His drinking skills are legendary too! Kate has worked with a number of world leading brands in some of the big ad agencies but she is more interested in sniffing out new breakthrough drinks and developing new bar concepts, Kenny is a engineer,  a stickler for detail and a dab hand at making things work with military precision and Jools is a organisational whizz and pretty dexterous at solving any creative problem you throw at her. Whilst we’ve all gone off to do our separate careers; the love of outdoor events, working together and top notch beer have always bought us back together.  As this passion developed, so our name was born – Festivales!  At the heart of the business is putting on beer and cider festivals; bringing together mouth watering line ups of different lip smacking ales, craft beers, ciders and perries. 


We have been delighted to have worked with some fabulously top notch events; Henley Royal Regatta, Sidmouth International Arts Festival, Brick Lane Beer Festival, Towersey Festival, Crawley Folk Festival, Thame Food Festival to name but a few.
