We are sorry to announce that it is unlikely we will be able to hold the 2021 beer festival in its usual format in Walpole Park in July as we would have wished to do so. Despite a glimmer of hope from the governments announcement in late February we would very shortly need to commit to a number of high value, non-refundable deposits without certainty the festival could go ahead in its usual format.
Additionally, whilst the vaccination programme continues at pace, the governments current target for all adults to be offered a first dose of the vaccine is the end of July, which may mean a significant number of attendees would not have had the opportunity to be vaccinated when the festival usually takes place.
We are continuing to look at options for a festival later in the year and will update the website and social channels as soon as we have any news.
Please keep safe, and we look forward to welcoming you to the festival as soon as we can.
