Future Beer and Cider Festivals

​Further to our previous Statement, the Branch is now pleased to announce that after an extensive search for someone to be appointed as Beer Festival Organiser for Summer 2023 that Kevin Sutterby has duly been appointed. Kevin brings a wealth of experience to the role and has been involved in Branch Festivals for over 30 years, being the Festival Organiser a number of times.

Kevin is now forming a team to deliver a Festival in July 2023 and is seeking new members to join; experience is not essential but energy and desire to put on a great Festival is!!  The initial focus is; finding a venue, agreeing dates, assessing how many people will volunteer (this will determine the size and scope of the festival) and compiling the CAMRA Business Plan to gain approval to go ahead.

We should stress again that the 2023 Summer Festival will not repeat the scale of previous events and will be limited by the number of volunteers we can get onboard, expect something quite different. Please consider volunteering when you see individual requests that will be sent out soon. Follow progress and news on our website and Social Media channels. Please reach out to Kevin with any questions, suggestions or if you would like to join the team in one of the open roles – sbfo@chelmsford.camra.org.uk
