The Great British Beer Festival Winter is back in Norwich from 19th-23rd February 2019 for another incredible five days of the best beer, local breweries, food, music and good times.

It’ll be a warm winter celebration of all things beer, with a massive range of great real ales, world beers and ciders. Norwich & Norfolk CAMRA are hosting the festival and we are filling the stunning medieval friary halls in the heart of Norwich with hundreds of beers of all shades, seasons and styles, so try some old favourites and find some new! With hot street food and live entertainment, plus a chance to try winners of the Champion Winter Beer of Britain competition in Blackfriars Hall, this is the place to be, in February!  The festival is open to the public on the 20th – 23rd February 2019, with an exclusive members-only session on Tuesday 19th February!

CAMRA Members can gain FREE entrance on the door to all sessions, simply bring your valid CAMRA card with you. Members must join the queue (if there is one), unless directed otherwise.


Admission is to over 18s only – proof of age may be requested. No children or babies at any session.


Our door staff will carry out bag searches at the entrance to Norwich Beer Festival. We ask that you do not bring unnecessary bags/rucksacks or unnecessarily bulky coats as, unfortunately, we do not have a cloakroom facility within The Halls. The bag searches will be conducted by the Stewarding Team.
