Due to major redevelopments at Nottingham Castle, for the next three years the annual Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival will be moving to the Motorpoint Arena in 2018, 2019 and 2020, with hopefully a return to Nottingham Castle in 2021 if this proves possible.
The festival will feature over 1000 real ales and over 200 ciders and perries plus well over a dozen brewery bars. This year there will be the introduction of the Key Keg bar with a range of just under 30 different beers on at a time from a range of around 100 different beers (all of which conform to CAMRAs definition of real ale). Of course, there will be the usual substantial range of food vendors offering a wide variety of food styles plus an ever larger selection of entertainment in two separate locations.
The festival will not only utilise the large floor of the Motorpoint Arena itself but also substantial backstage areas, an outside space and also Bolero Square at the front of the building, giving plenty of room to bring you all of the usual popular attractions plus new additions.
