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

Branch Diary

January  2015
  • Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival

    Starts: 12:00 am

    Ends: 12:00 am, 11th January, 2015

    Location: Whittlesea, then Ely

    Description: Sat 10th Jan Branch trip to the Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival 2015 and then GBG pubs* in Ely, Cambridgeshire.

    Trains as follows: Knebworth 0839, change at Hitchin or Stevenage, Stevenage 0842, Hitchin 0852. Change at Peterborough to catch the 0950 and arrive at Whittlesea at 0958. This gives us plenty of time to get to the town for the parade. Leave Whittlesea around 1600 and go to Ely to visit the GBG Pubs. Leave Ely around 2000*, arriving Hitchin around 2100.

    * Ely crawl/itinerary: Liberty Belle, Town House, Prince Albert (then a supermarket run before heading to the station) - the order may change on the day depending on how the party feels
