Success for the Festival Charity

The 2018 Festival Charity was the North West Air Ambulance.
The festival raised a fantastic £5,860.06 for them.

As a thank you, a number of the Festival volunteers were given a tour of their base and one of the helicopters.

North West Air Ambulance will also be the charity for 2019.


New Festival Organiser

Who is the new Organiser ?

My name is Adrian Saunders, and many of you will have seen me before, as I have worked in various roles at CAMRA’s National Winter Ales Festival (NWAF) and then the Manchester Beer & Cider Festival (MBCF) since 2009.

I don’t currently live in Manchester, but I spent 7 years here at Manchester University, before moving to Northern Ireland. Some of you may recognise me from 11 Belfast Beer & Cider Festivals. (more…)
