Over 500 people signed up as members of CAMRA and 3,309 was raised for our official charity, Next Steps, based in Arbury, who help people with learning difficulties and mental health problems, to develop life skills and confidence.

Our grateful thanks to everyone who attended and, in particular, to our brilliant volunteer staff, especially the unsung heroes and heroines who helped with the unglamorous tasks of putting the festival up and taking it down again.

And so to the Beers of the Festival and yet another triumph for Mark Watch and his Cambridge Moonshine brewery.
