Can you help organise the 2019

The Branch is already starting preparations for the 28th East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival which will be held at the Arc Shopping Center in Bury St Edmunds 1st-4th May 2019 with the intention that it will be the biggest and best yet with exciting new attractions and facilities for festival goers.
A successful festival relies on good organisation with volunteers committing some of their time to help to prepare and run the event. If you would like to help with the festival please contact the organisers at the address below.
The event also offers excellent sponsorship and advertising opportunities for local businesses.
Please contact ku.gro.armac.kloffustsew@lavitsef for more information.
