The Oxford Branch held its 22nd CAMRA Beer & Cider Festival in Oxford Town Hall from 24th to 26th October 2019 with 130 different real ales and 40 more held over to the Saturday, and 50 ciders and perries.

If you want to see how we have done it in the past here’s a time-lapse of the setting up: Oxford Beer Festival set-up by Laurence Harman

There is more information on our Beer Festival web site and here is a link to the beer list for Thursday and Friday (130 beers) and Saturday (40 beers) : Beer list 15 October

And here is the cider & perry list :  Cider List 18 October

We’ve already got a provisional date for next year’s festival. It will be in the Toiwn Hall again from Thursday 22 October to Saturday 24.

Would you like to help?

The festival is entirely organised, set up, and staffed by volunteers.
It’s good fun and you get some beer and food tokens, possibly a T shirt (maybe even in your size), and a warm glow from helping a wide variety of people have a good time. If you help on Sunday morning we will buy you lunch in a local hostelry. You don’t strictly need to be a CAMRA member but we have our reputation to think of so, if not, you will need to be a friend or relative of someone we know. Any previous experience would be useful but is not necessary. If you want to get involved e-mail Staffing or look out for the staffing form which will be available nearer the date.
