Occombe Beer Festival, It’s not just about the beer, music, dancing and feasting. The festival is a charity event and festival goers help some of the places we love here in Torbay. 100% of the festival profits go to Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust, who look after Berry Head, Ansteys Cove, Occombe Farm and Cockington. Sun, beer, friends and raising money for charity. Sounds like a great day to me, lets go….
