45th Cambridge Beer Festival

Monday 21 to Saturday 26 May 2018

Jesus Green, Cambridge, UK

Welcome to the 45th Cambridge Beer Festival. The festival is the oldest CAMRA beer festival and one of the largest in the country.

Like all CAMRA festivals, the festival is organised and run by unpaid volunteers. We are always looking for volunteers, old and new. As a volunteer you get cheap beer and free food. If you’d like to help out, whether just for a few hours one evening or throughout the festival, you will be made most welcome. Don’t worry about needing experience, as training will be given and we have a wide range of jobs available. Find out more and volunteer online.
