Beer Walk
Saturday 29th May 2010
Saturday 18th June 2011


This is an annual event which takes place in late May or early June on the Saturday following Whit Friday.

Organised by the Saddleworth Round Table for the past 25 years or so, it is a sponsored walk over 10 miles of hills, moors and villages taking in 10 pubs. It attracts up to 1,000 entrants and raises up to £50,000 for a variety of charitable causes.

The participants generally enter as groups rather than individuals. What makes it such a good spectator sport is the fact that all walk in fancy dress. Great imagination is shown in the creation of outfits, which are often on a topical theme.

Spectators line the best vantage viewpoints, such as Uppermill High Street, and are advised to come with their pockets full of small change for putting in all the collection tins.
