Support the festival

Sponsorship

Sponsoring the Cambridge Beer Festival will put your company in front of over 40,000 visitors. It will help us continue our work campaigning to protect pubs and promote real ale, cider and perry, and to keep prices down for our customers.

For further information and to make a booking, contact sponsorship@cambridgebeerfestival.com.
