Committee review for hosting the 28th Doncaster Beer Festival
The August committee meeting has reviewed the possibility of hosting the 28th Doncaster Beer Festival next year.
Things are looking promising, dates are being looked at and other items of concern are being addressed. One of the main concerns is the availability of volunteers? Should the items that are being addressed be accepted, a call for availability may go out sooner to members. Please revisit the news page for further announcements.
Please note that until things are finalised the Beer Festival Website will be dormant.
