CAMRA Norwich Beer Festival.


Norwich’s largest beer festival is BACK this October (2021), and we couldn’t be more delighted.

The 43rd Norwich Beer Festival, run by Norwich & District CAMRA, will once again liven up The Halls and bring cheer to the beer lovers of Norfolk and beyond.

The festival will run from Monday 25th to Saturday 30th October 2021, (October half term) at The Halls (St Andrew’s and Blackfriars) in Norwich.

Following the green light from the national CAMRA organisation, Norwich’s premier Beer Festival returns after a break for the pandemic last year, with many national and local real ales of every shade and style, alongside international beers and food. The dedicated cider and perry bar will be graded from sweet to dry and the popular world beer bar, in the marquee, returns too.

The Curiosity Bar, featuring special beers, is also returning for its 3rd year.

As usual, every day, including Saturday, visitors to October’s Norwich Beer Festival can pay on the door . If you would like to secure advance tickets, they are on sale now until 1st October 2021.

For those festival visitors who like to collect the Norwich Beer Festival beer glasses, the festival continues to run in chronological order, missing 2020.

This year’s charity is Norfolk SEN Network, supporting parents of children with special educational needs (SEN) and young people aged 16-25 with SEN to find the right educational placement or provision to meet their needs.

Craig Harmer, Beer Festival Organiser, commented, ‘We are delighted to once again be organising Norwich Beer Festival and supporting our local breweries. We all missed the festival in 2020 and trust it will again receive the fantastic support of customers, tradespeople and volunteers. Advance tickets are only available for a limited time, so be quick! As ever we shall be welcoming payment on the door. I would also like to add a special thank you to the breweries who supported the recent Norwich Pub Festival.’

We are looking forward to heading along again this year, do keep an eye on all the Norwich Beer Festival news via their Facebook page.
