The City Charter Beer Festival is organised by a group of volunteers who have formed a committee for this purpose. The next committee meeting will be on Wednesday 31st May 2017 at the Brunswick Inn, Railway Terrace, starting at 20:00. All CAMRA members welcome.


As with all CAMRA Beer Festivals, the Derby Summer Beer Festival is staffed entirely by volunteers who come along to promote real ale in the City of Derby. If you would like to take part your help will be gratefully received no matter how big or small your commitment.
