2011 Hitchin

Probably the last at the Town Hall

2011 will probably see the last Beer & Cider Festival at Hitchin Town Hall. You’ll probably be aware that it is to undergo redevelopment that will create a community hall venue and a museum for North Hertfordshire. Unfortunately the resulting venue is not likely to be large enough for us to run a Festival.

Come along to Hitchin Town Hall on the 18th & 19th March.
We’ll be there with lots of cask beer, cider, perry, bottled and draught foreign beer.
We’re ordering much more stock than last year so we can make this one even bigger & better than before……
The cask beer list is here in pdf format and here in Excel format.

Opening times

Friday 18th March, Noon to 11pm

Saturday 19th March, 11am to 11pm


General entry is £1 before 4pm and £2.50 thereafter
CAMRA Members, EBCU Members and OAPs get FREE ENTRY at all times
Venue address: Hitchin Town Hall, Brand Street, Hitchin,  SG5 1HX
