2016 Hitchin Beer & Cider Festival

Less than a month to go until the festival!

We’ll be updating information in the run-in to the festival. In the meantime, watch out for our festival banner at Churchgate, and for leaflets and posters in your local and at Hitchin railway station.

We’re delighted that there will be plenty of great food stalls at the festival:
