Chesterfield CAMRA normally hold their annual beer & cider festival at the Winding Wheel theatre every February, the 2020 event was one of the last to take place before the first Coronavirus lockdown of March that year and of course the 2021 event could not take place.
Due to limited planning timescales and uncertainty with the pandemic, including the Winding Wheel being used as a vaccination centre, the festival in its normal format won’t be back until 2023.
For February 2022 the festival will be going walkabout with pubs in three areas of Chesterfield – Whittington Moor, the town centre and the Brampton mile – putting on events over the same weekend of 4th and 5th February.
Regular buses run from Sheffield to Chesterfield via Whittington Moor, the fastest being the X17, the others being 43, 44, 50 and 50a. The Brampton pubs are walkable from the town centre or various buses (84,90,X70) run along the Chatsworth Road.
