The 2018 Festival will take place from 17th – 20th October, 2018.

The festival will not only utilise the large floor of the Arena, but also backstage areas, and outdoor space including Bolero Square at the front of the building. Festival organisers will be able to give event goers plenty of room to bring all of the usual popular attractions, plus some new additions. For the first time, organisers will also be in the position to offer corporate hospitality opportunities.

Nottingham CAMRA chairman Steve Westby, said "We are grateful to the Arena and the City Council for making this great city centre venue available for one of the most popular events in the city's social calendar. It goes without saying that we will once again be proudly offering the widest range of draught real ales, ciders and perries in the world in a great atmosphere and at affordable prices."
