PROST! BEDFORD BAMBERG SPRING
The sixth annual Bedford Bamberg Spring Fest
begins in Bedford Town Centre on Friday 10th May, and
ends on Saturday 11th May, and on both days, it will run
from midday – midnight. This year, the portfolio of beers on offer
has been expanded further still, so it could well be the most
popular occasion yet.
This year’s event boasts more than 40
different German beers, wine and schnapps on offer with 12 beers
brewed in Bamberg itself. The smoked beer from Bamberg,
‘Schlenkerla Rauchbier’ will be available on tap this year.
However, if none of that sounds like your
thing there’s always the German barbecue, live music and atmosphere
of a German beer hall to keep you entertained.
Councillor Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for
Leisure and Culture at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Spring Fest
is one of the most popular events on the Corn Exchange calendar,
and always attracts hundreds of people throughout the weekend.
Attendance was up 20% last year and well over 4,000 pints were
“We have more than 40 German beers brought in
especially for the event as well as wines, schnapps and soft
drinks. The popular Don Bosco Brass Band and authentic German
barbecue are also returning.
“Spring Fest started back in 2008 at Bedford
Corn Exchange on behalf of Bedford Borough Council, to highlight
Bedford’s twinning with Bamberg – both of which are famous for
their beer brewing.”
Entry is free.
