Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival

11th to 14th October 2023

Festival Sponsorship Opportunities

It’s that time of year again - Nottingham CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) is again hosting our popular annual Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival, with expected attendances totalling around 15,000 over the four days. We are seeking sponsors for the event on a much larger scale than previously.

Our main aims for the festival are to create a great event for real ale & cider enthusiasts and the local community. The festival is organised and run entirely by volunteers, and all profits are used to further the aims of the Campaign, supporting pubs and breweries both locally and nationally.

Held at the historic Trent Bridge Cricket Ground the festival will feature some of the UK’s finest real ales and ciders as well as good food and continuous live entertainment from local bands.

The programme for the weekend kicks off on Wednesday afternoon with a trade session, to which we issue invitations to every pub in the Greater Nottingham area as well as to breweries and other businesses associated with the licensed trade. This session has a good attendance, in the region of 2,000, and offers a great opportunity to reach out to a wide cross section of the trade.
