In just four months the 32nd East Anglian Beer & Cider Festival, opens its doors once more, once by kind permission of the Dean & Chapter at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds.

This year’s event will run for six days from Wednesday 21st – Monday 26th August 2024.

After by the success of last year’s event, the organisers have announced the opening hours and arrangements for on-line ticket sales. All proceeds will support local charities and good causes. Last years event raised over £30,000. This year’s festival is the thirty-second, having run annually since 1991. The organisers are planning another great event, with a full entertainment programme and a wide range of beers, ciders and other drinks. To make the Festival accessible for all, admission to the weekday daytime, Sunday and Monday sessions will be FREE.

A limited number of first release tickets are now on sale. These will offer discounts and guarantee Fast Track admission. Tickets can be obtained via the button at the top of this page. The entertainment line-up will be announced shortly with a range of musical genres to suit every taste. The Festival Soundstage will host local bands and entertainers, headline hitting Tribute Bands and the return of the ‘Last night of the Proms’ – a Friday evening finale in the Cathedral Nave!

Martin Bate, Beer Festival Organiser said “Making the first tranche of tickets available reminds us the Festival is now only four months away. We so excited to be working with St Edmundsbury Cathedral again to stage what promises to be our biggest and best yet. We’re working hard with our charity partners, including St Nicholas’s Hospice, Women’s Royal Army Voluntary Corps, Bury Theatre Royal and other local fundraisers, to ensure we have another successful year. I urge everybody to get on-line and buy their tickets now while prices are low. We are already inundated with interest following three years’ success at the cathedral. We are clearly on the map as one of the Country’s premier events of this type and I am anticipating it will be a sell-out.”
