The Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival, Nottingham CAMRA’s flagship annual event, has secured a new home at Trent Bridge cricket ground.

The much awaited event runs from Wednesday 13th October until Saturday 16th October. Wednesday is Trade Day and is open to the public from 4pm to 11pm. The festival then opens from 11am to 11pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Tickets are priced at £10 for the Wednesday and Thursday sessions and £20 for Friday and Saturday inclusive of booking fees and include nine beer tokens, which equate to a pint and a half of all but the stronger brews. CAMRA members receive a further three tokens on presentation of a valid membership card.

Ticket are available from the Trent Bridge ticketing site. More details about the event can be found here on the beer festival website.

The admission price does not include a commemorative glass, all customers will be issued with a loan glass free of charge. However it will be possible to order a 2021 commemorative glass at the time of buying tickets or they can be purchased from our shop when attending the festival.

Diary clashes at the Motorpoint Arena and the redevelopment of Nottingham Castle sparked the search for a venue befitting the scale and prestige of the event which has grown considerably in recent years with up to 20,000 customers expected to attend throughout the duration of the festival.

“We are delighted to have been invited to stage the festival at Trent Bridge,” said Nottingham CAMRA Chairman Steve Westby.

“I am sure customers will appreciate the opportunity to enjoy drinking quality beers and ciders in such historic surroundings.

Trent Bridge, the historic home of Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, is ingrained in pub folklore with its founder, William Clarke, having married the landlady of the Trent Bridge Inn in 1837. One year later, the adjoining field became the county’s premier cricket ground under his stewardship.

Sustained investment has cemented the West Bridgford venue’s position as one of six in England to host Test cricket.

“We can’t wait to welcome Nottingham CAMRA to Trent Bridge and dearly hope that circumstances allow us to stage the event this year,” said Trent Bridge Commercial Director Michael Temple.

“We all need something to look forward to and we’re thrilled to be working with Steve and the team to progress their plans as soon as it’s deemed safe to do so.”
