Festival organisers

The Cheshire Beer Festival is organised by a group of volunteers from Cheshire branches of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).  A lot of hard work and effort goes into organising the festival and the group put in a lot of effort behind the scenes to deliver a top class festival for you to enjoy.

It’s not just all about ordering a great range of ales and ciders!  Here is a quick summary of what goes on to make the festival successful:

  • Preparing (and sticking to) the budget
  • Regular planning meetings – usually over  beer or two!
  • Securing sponsors
  • Liaising with the venue
  • Marketing
  • Organising the entertainment
  • Working with the festival charity
  • Distributing posters, flyers and beer mats around the area
  • Attending CAMRA courses
  • Health and safety
  • Transporting equipment
  • Assembling the bar
  • Racking, resting and venting the ales
  • Ensuring the ales are cold enough
  • Making sure everything goes to plan when the festival is open
  • Staffing at the festival itself
  • Clearing up and taking all the setup back down
  • … and much, much more!

We are always looking for new faces to help out from the members of the Cheshire CAMRA branches.  So, if you have been to a festival and you think you’d like to give something back – get in touch with us and find out how!
