Grahame Morris, MP for Easington, Paul Howell, MP for Sedgefield, Richard Holden, MP for North West Durham and Mary Kelly Foy, MP for the City of Durham were due to speak.

Postponement of 40th CAMRA Durham Beer Festival

Posted on Wed, 22/04/2020 - 12:27 by webmaster

It is with a sense of both disappointment and inevitability that CAMRA Durham announce that there will be no CAMRA Durham Beer Festival this year. While the 2020 CAMRA Durham Beer Festival has been cancelled, the 40th CAMRA Durham Beer Festival has merely been postponed, and will happen when it is both safe and appropriate.
