The Motorpoint Arena Nottingham will host the annual Robin Hood Nottingham Beer & Cider Festival in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
The 2018 Festival will take place from 17 – 20 October with tickets going on sale on 1 June.
The Festival will not only utilise the large floor of the arena (the ice will, of course, be covered) but also backstage areas, and outdoor space including Bolero Square at the front of the building. Festival organisers will be able to give event-goers plenty of room to bring all of the usual popular attractions, plus some new additions. For the first time, organisers will also be in the position to offer corporate hospitality opportunities.
Nottingham CAMRA chairman Steve Westby, said “we are grateful to the arena and the city council for making this great city centre venue available for one of the most popular events in the city’s social calendar. It will present our hard-working team of volunteers with a major logistical challenge to move from the Castle grounds to a venue that is mostly indoor, but I know they will rise to the occasion, as always. It goes without saying that we will once again be proudly offering the widest range of draught real ales, ciders and perries in the world in a great atmosphere and at affordable prices.”
The festival usually takes place at Nottingham Castle but due to major redevelopments for the next three years, it’s not possible to hold the event there.
