"Martin Bate and Camra has already proved that a beer festival can be operated safely and well this year with Covid precautions, and we wanted to keep that momentum going in Bury from the festival at the cathedral in August.

"We have created a festival with free entry with a free glass and program with some amazing breweries including Nethergate, Marstons, Mighty Oak, Woodfordes and the Three Blind Mice Brewery Key Keg bar.

"We have a large space for revellers to enjoy and we really wanted to open it up to everyone to enjoy someone the town loves”.
