Leicester Beer Festival news

As you my have seen, CAMRA have cancelled the Great British Beer Festival (Winter) which was scheduled to take place in February 2022. This follows on from the announcement that Manchester, which was also due in February, being cancelled, and many other branches either cancelling or postponing events due to the current uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID pandemic.

As a branch we have reviewed the possibility of holding a beer festival in 2022 and believe that with the loss of our venue, the ongoing high infection rates and now uncertainty surrounding new variants, trying to organise a festival in 2022 presents a significant financial risk to the Branch and CAMRA in already difficult times.
 
Regardless, being entirely run by volunteers (many of whom have full time jobs), put quite simply, we feel we have run out of time to be able to find a new venue and successfully deliver the festival we would want to put on for you all.

We are exploring other options to provide some smaller festival(s) but nothing has been agreed yet.  Please watch our social media and website for events as they are arranged.
