"We are truly delighted to welcome the CAMRA Real Ale and Cider Festival back to Holy Trinity for a third time. It has become one of the highlights in our calendar and it gives great pleasure to see thousands of people coming into the church to enjoy good drink and good company in the setting of this magnificent building.

Since last year’s festival, we’ve had so many conversations with people who have enjoyed coming in the past, or who are determined that they will not miss this year’s event! The anticipation is awesome, and so I wouldn’t be surprised if this year’s festival will be even more popular than in the last. I hope to meet you around the church somewhere, with a glass of something suitable in our hands, of course!”

Best wishes
Neal Barnes - Vicar


Sold out!

After a record number of visitors the 36th Hull & East Yorkshire CAMRA beer and cider festival sold out at 4:30pm on Saturday afternoon. Another fantastic success and our thanks go out to all the volunteers who made this possible.

We look forward to seeing you all next year when we hope to threaten the record books yet again!

Who runs the festival?

The beer festival is organised and staffed entirely by local CAMRA members. The festival can get very busy and there may be times when you have to queue; but we ask you to remember that all staff are unpaid volunteers who give up their spare time to provide this festival for you.

Want to help? Volunteers urgently needed!

We desperately need more volunteers to come and help us. Even if you can only spare a few hours on one of the days your help will be really appreciated. You don't need skills or experience (though we'll be happy to make use of any you have!), all you need to bring is enthusiasm and a willingness to roll your sleeves up. Our friendly bunch of volunteer staff will give all the advice and training you need to do your job. Click here to go to the volunteers page.
