Spring Fest

PROST!  BEDFORD BAMBERG SPRING FEST RETURNS

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 sold.

 

“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.
