Festival guide

Below is a guide to beer festivals in or near Sheffield that we are aware of over the coming weeks. While we believe the information is correct, we advise checking with the venue/organisers before making any special journeys.

CAMRA festival listings can also be found on the national CAMRA events page and commercial festivals on aletalk.

Note – currently due to Covid-19 restrictions no physical beer festivals are taking place. Listed below are any virtual festivals we are aware of along with events later in the year being provisionally organised on the condition that the situation has improved sufficiently for them to be able to go ahead safely.

CAMRA Members Weekend, AGM & Conference

Sat 17 Apr

This event would have been taking place at Sheffield City Hall this year but alas, with Covid restrictions it wasn’t possible so it is all going online including the opportunity to relax in a virtual members bar drinking beer from Sheffield with the brewers afterwards! To sign up for the conference  visit the Members Weekend website.
