SE Essex CAMRA Beer & Cider Festival

August 31 2021:

At our Branch Meeting tonight it was confirmed that there would be no SE Essex CAMRA festival in 2021

If we have enough volunteers we will attempt to plan something for 2022

Please visit and support pubs and other venues. They need our help now more than ever.

2020 announcement:

For the last few months, publicans and their staff have been struggling to comply with the current government Covid-19 restrictions which is having an effect on their business and livelihood.

With a fair number of our national pubs only recently opening and still under more threat than they were before, we feel that it is not the time or the social environment to hold a Festival.

With this in mind, plus the fact that the 2020 venue has confirmed it will remain closed indefinitely, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 South East Essex Beer & Cider Festival.

We would, however, encourage all our branch members and visitors to visit and support our local pubs rather than attend our festival. They need your help now more than ever.
