City Beerfest 1 : Tube Strike 0

Some early rain and a tube strike couldn’t dampen the spirits of the thousands that came to the third City Beerfest on 8th July! They were rewarded with a huge range of beers and a fantastic musical programme in the beautiful setting of the historic Guildhall Yard.

The event was officially opened by the Lord Mayor and raised over £20,000 for City Music Foundation, the Lord Mayor’s Appeal and the City of London Festival. More information about the event is at

Our special thanks go to our colleagues at the Worshipful Company of Brewers, the Guildhall, the City of London Festival and the Lord Mayor’s Appeal as well as to headline sponsor Gensler and our further sponsors Daniel WatneyHempsonsBrown Shipley and Wirefield.

We are already looking forward to next year…..!
