NEW VENUE and DATES for the 29th EAST ANGLIAN BEER & CIDER FESTIVAL

Hot on the heels of the Government road map out of lockdown the West Suffolk and Borders branch of CAMRA has unveiled ambitious plans for a ‘comeback’ Festival later this year.

By kind permission of the Dean & Chapter, the 29th East Anglian Beer & Cider Festival will take place in the Cathedral, Cloisters and Garth in Bury St Edmunds from Wednesday 25th August until Monday 30th August 2021, coinciding with the town’s annual Food & Drink Festival and late summer Bank Holiday weekend.

Full Press Release can be found here
