 Amber Valley CAMRA Beer & Cider Festival 2017

Fourth year at Strutts for our 8th Festival

The 8th Amber Valley CAMRA festival will be held at Strutts on Derby Road, Belper from Thursday 28th September to Sunday 1st October 2017. Strutts, the former Herbert Strutt Grammar School is a grade 2 listed, Edwardian building and its main hall and classrooms provide a unique, atmospheric venue. Drinks will be served from a large marquee in one of the playgrounds. Strutts is ideally situated on the A6 just outside Belper town centre and has its own car park. The railway and bus stations are only a short walk away and some buses stop right outside the venue. Advance tickets are not required at any sessions but be sure to arrive early to ensure admission.  Admission is restricted to over 18's after 6pm each day. The Sunday session 12-2pm is free entry with any remaining beers selling at £2 a pint. Festival access will be from the playground/car park at the  rear of the building through the door nearest to Gibfield Lane. We look forward to welcoming you to our 8th annual Festival.

The Beers, Ciders & Perries

We aim to showcase a good mix of traditional styles along with some unusual and contemporary beers. In conjunction with the bicentennial anniversary of the Pentrich Revolution, there will be one-off specials from local breweries, some of which may be historic recipes from that era. The beer and cider lists will be available to view on our website www.ambervalleycamra.org.uk closer to the event. 2017 Festival commemorative glasses in various styles with third and half pint lines will be on sale for £3. Hire glasses will also be available on sale or return.

Festival Catering

From Thursday to Saturday Farmhouse Kitchen of Belper will be providing catering. Hot food will include curry, chilli, burgers and hot dogs. Cold options will include an assortment of rolls, pastries and cold platters. Hot and cold vegetarian food will also be available. Soft drinks and snacks will be available at all sessions with free soft drinks for designated drivers.

Entertainment / Events

There will be live music in the main hall on Friday and Saturday nights. Thursday and Sunday will be music free and quiet rooms are available at all sessions for those who prefer to drink in peace or have a chat. Free Wi-Fi is available at the venue. Dogs are welcome but only allowed in certain areas. We will be holding a quiz for teams of up to four people with prizes of beer or cider for first and second place. It will be free to enter. Volunteers will be on hand to fetch drinks for players from the marquee during the quiz.
