A message from Norman, the organiser
Following the successful Maltingsfest in 2023, I am pleased to say that the 2024 event will take place between Thursday 18th and Saturday 20th April. The expanded range of keg beers, keg and still ciders and spirits were well received by our festival goers but we also had a great range of cask beer, although it did appear on the Saturday as though we were “Sold Out” – something we’re hoping to avoid this year.
As ever we are grateful for the support from members of the local CAMRA branches who swell the numbers behind the bar serving the thirsty customers. We are primarily looking for help to serve the ale on gravity from the stillage so please don’t be concerned if you’re not comfortable serving keg products. You may also be aware that we set aside a proportion of the profits from the festival and distribute these to the branches whose members come to help us. The amount paid to each branch depends on the hours worked by their members, which is why it is very important to sign in and out when starting and finishing a shift, and of course the festival being profitable.

If you would like to be a part of Maltingsfest and help serve behind the cask ale bar, please notify Norman by e-mail the hours you would like to serve

Opening Times:
Thursday 18th April - 5.00pm til 11.00pm
Friday 19th April - 11.00am til 11.00pm
Saturday 20th April - 11.00am til 10.00pm
