So with 2016 passing into Autumn we again are starting the process of organising the next Derby City Charter Summer Beer Festival. The first committee meeting will be on Wednesday 9th November 2016 at the Brunswick Inn, Railway Terrace, Derby starting at 19:00 (7pm). This is where we will allocate principal roles and decide on the publicity stratagy. All CAMRA members welcome.


As with all CAMRA Beer Festivals, the Derby Summer Beer Festival is staffed entirely by volunteers who come along to promote real ale in the City of Derby. If you would like to take part your help will be gratefully received no matter how big or small your commitment. To volunteer, please complete a staffing form by following the link below.
