Bradford CAMRA wishes to thank everyone who attended and supported our recent Beer Festival held at Victoria Hall, Saltaire from 22- 24 February 2018. We are pleased to report that the Festival was a huge success with a record-breaking attendance of over 3200 people over the three days. Over that period, festival-goers consumed nearly 12,000 pints of high quality ales from West and North Yorkshire independent breweries and a selection from small brewers in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. In addition, they downed 900 pints of cider and 500 pints of international beers.
The event was staffed entirely by over 100 CAMRA volunteers who spent a total of over 1500 hours during the 7 days we occupied the Festival venue.
The sum of £683 was raised by attendees for the nominated Festival Charity – Cancer Research UK
