Beer Festivals

We are very lucky in South Bedfordshire that there are always a number of excellent local beer festivals to attend. Many of them are not CAMRA beer festivals, but are wholeheartedly endorsed by us.

For a list of CAMRA beer festivals in the East Anglia region go to the beer festivals page of the regional website. For other CAMRA beer festivals around the country go to the events section of the national website for more information.
