Bedford Beer and Cider Festival 2021 is on

43rd BEDFORD CAMRA BEER & CIDER FESTIVAL 2021

Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th October 2021
Corn Exchange, St Paul’s Square, Bedford MK40 1SL

We are pleased to announce that we will be holding our festival again this year. It will be a smaller and simpler festival than we have been used to, with only 80 real ales and 40 ciders, no separate foreign beer bar and no entertainers. The festival committee is still planning the final details, but expects the event to go ahead unless the Government imposes fresh Covid restrictions that would make it too difficult to run successfully.

Further details of the festival are posted on the BBCF web page on our branch website. If you can spare a few hours, please  fill in our online form to volunteer to help either during the festival, or on the Sundays before and after when we badly need people to set up and take down the bars, stillage and counters. We are likely to need more bar staff on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings than in the quieter sessions. If you cannot work for long without sitting, you can volunteer for the festival office, which will manage staffing, recruit new members and sell extra drink tokens. Although we can’t pay you wages, you get free beer or cider of your choice and a discount on food while on duty, as well as grateful thanks from the branch.,
