News of our Beckenham Beer & Cider Festival 2022.
You will all know that CAMRA official events have been suspended since March 2020. This was done for the safety of attendees and in line with government Covid-19 regulations. Well, after an almost two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, you will be delighted to hear that CAMRA have now relaunched their national programme of beer festivals. With restrictions now lifted, local branch beer festivals are welcome to open their doors once more.
This means that our much missed and loved Beckenham Beer & Cider Festival is back! It will be taking place in July 2022 at the Beckenham Rugby Club, Balmoral Avenue, BR3 3RD. The dates to put in your diaries are Thursday July 28 to Saturday July 30 2022. We are looking to bring you once again the very best in local beers, ciders and food and make up for the past two festivals we have lost.
Things will look a little different at our Beckenham festival in 2022 – national CAMRA and local branches are introducing rigorous safety schemes to make sure festivals are Covid secure. It is paramount to ensure all attendees and volunteers are happy – they must feel safe and comfortable when visiting or working at our beer festival. New processes will be put in place to ensure this. But you will still be able to experience the sheer joy of being at a beer festival. I am sure we have all missed the social benefits of a festival drink with friends and we all look forward to meeting up with loved ones and fellow branch members over a festival pint.
Initial planning for our beer festival has already begun. The venue for 2022 is booked and we have begun asking for our great band of festival volunteers to step forward again. If you want to volunteer, and haven’t already submitted an application form, you can complete the form online by clicking this link. Meanwhile, keep watching this web page and read the monthly e-Newsletters to keep up to date as the festival planning progresses.
We can also look forward to the return of the Great British Beer Festival in August 2022, after missing out on CAMRA’s flagship event for two years – keep an eye out on the national CAMRA channels and our website for updates!
