Beer Festivals

Trafford & Hulme CAMRA currently organise the Chorlton Beer & Cider Festival in conjunction with St Clement's Church, Chorlton

The festival offers visitors the opportunity to sample a much wider selection of real ales than you could do at even the best pub. All Trafford & Hulme festivals also feature a range of traditional cider & perries.

The eight Greater Manchester branches of CAMRA join together to organise the Manchester Beer and Cider Festival, the innaugaural festival being arranged for January 2014 at the iconic Manchester Velodrome at the National Cycling Centre.

In addition, many members of the branch volunteer at other CAMRA festivals including the The Great British Beer Festival.  

All CAMRA festivals rely on the efforts of CAMRA volunteers to run. Volunteering to work at beer festivals is great fun and an excellent way to make new friends.
