Matlock & Dales 3rd Beer Festival 2015

A very busy 3rd Matlock and Dales Beer Festival took place over the 23rd and 24th October 2015. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

County Hall Beer Festival Thank You

Matlock and Dales CAMRA would like to express their sincere gratitude to all the businesses who generously supported the first Beer Festival to take place at County Hall, Matlock.

Their contributions made the event a big success with many positive comments about the venue, the friendly atmosphere, the great selection of music, free transport to and from the venue, the event programme venue, and of course the great selection of beers and ciders.

This was only made possible by those who bought into what we were trying to achieve, essentially they brought the event to life and in doing so ensured people came along in large numbers ensuring the event was a big success.

We look forward to a bigger and better Beer Festival in October 2016 and hope everyone that helped make this year’s event such a success does so again next year.

We like to raise a glass and say cheers to the following organisations without whom there wouldn’t have been a Matlock and Dales CAMRA Beer Festival:
