Thousands of beer lovers expected at Norwich festival

Tens of thousands of beer lovers are expected to visit Norwich's Beer Festival- now in it's 41st year.

Doors open at 5.30pm this evening (22 October) for the week long event at 'The Halls' on St Andrews's Plain.

This year the festival is supporting two charities, Headway in Norfolk and Waveney's brain injury charity.

Gone are the days of waiting for a long time in a queue. We now have a fast-track queue system and everyone is surprised how quickly they enter the Halls and are able to purchase their glass and tokens, even on the busier Thursday and Friday.
