Tomorrow in Guildhall Yard....

This year’s third City Beerfest promises to be another resounding success with fifteen breweries, an exciting and varied musical programme, a cooperage display, dray horses, and thousands of City workers, visitors and beer enthusiasts filling the beautiful Guildhall Yard.

The City Beerfest is organised by City Music Foundation in partnership with Worshipful Company of Brewers, City of London Festival and the Lord Mayor’s Appeal. It will be officially opened by the Lord Mayor and will raise money for this year’s Lord Mayor’s Appeal as well as the City Music Foundation.
