|POSTPONED>>>||Vistors to last years East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival were unanimous that the venue, the beer and cider selection, the free entertainment, the festival food made it our best festival yet
The organisers are not resting on their laurels with more beers more ciders more entertainment planned for this year
Postponement of the East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival
Regrettably, as a consequence of government advice on the Coronavirus, the Apex in Bury St Edmunds has made the decision today to suspend all events due to take place at the venue with immediate effect on Health and Safety grounds until further notice. This means that we will be unable to hold the East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival as planned on 22-25th April 2020 so we have postponed the event. It is hoped that we will be able to reschedule the festival for later in the year and should this be possible we will update the festival website https://www.burystedmundsbeerfestival.com
