Prost! Bedford Bamberg Spring Fest Returns!
The fourth annual Bedford Bamberg Spring Fest kicks off on
Friday 13th May in Bedford Town Centre.
This year’s event boasts more than 40 different German beers,
wine and schnapps on offer with 12 beers brewed in Bamberg itself –
including last year’s favourite, the smoked beer from Bamberg;
However, if none of that sounds like your thing there’s always
the German barbecue and live music to keep you entertained!
Dave Hodgson, Mayor of Bedford Borough, said: “The Bedford
Bamberg Spring Fest is always an extremely popular event and we
hope this year will be no different.
“There are more than 40 German beers as well as wines and
schnapps on offer and the popular Don Bosco Brass Band and
authentic German barbecue will also be returning. In addition,
anyone who really gets into the spirit and comes dressed in
traditional Bavarian costumes will be given free entry!
“This is an excellent opportunity to experience the most
authentic sights, sounds and tastes of a Springfest outside
Spring Fest started back in 2008 and is run by 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.
The event runs at the Harpur Suite, Friday 13th to Saturday
14th May between noon and midnight. Entry is free before 8pm and £2
