Now in its 41st year, The Great British Beer Festival (GBBF) is returning to London this summer from the 7-11 August at Kensington Olympia.

Standard tickets start from £9 for CAMRA members, or £11 for non-members. There will also be VIP packages available for larger groups.

Catherine Tonry, the organiser of the Great British Beer Festival said: “We are delighted that the Great British Beer Festival will be returning to London once again this summer. There will be a number of exciting new brews and entertainment available this year so we recommend getting your tickets early!

“The Great British Beer Festival is a staple of CAMRA’s calendar, and a source of great excitement for so many. We hope that everybody enjoys the festival as much as we do.”

Last week, the brewing body proposed changes that would see its remit expand to include cider and perry for the first time and its focus shift “beyond traditional pubs”, ahead of a revamp of the organisation’s priorities in April.

Members are also being asked if the organisation should make changes to the range of types of beer that it represents, including those which do not currently meet the organisation’s definition of “real ale” in a bid to “engage with all beer drinkers and with all pub-goers, irrespective of what they choose to drink, increasing its ability to campaign in the interests of a much larger constituency.”
