Eddington Craft Beer & Gin Festival returns to Storey’s Field Centre from 17 – 20 October.
The Festival was born just a year ago when local event management company The Crane Event was approached to fill a gap in the Storey’s Field Centre schedule at short notice. Teaming up with Cambridge Event Bars, they created this hugely successful happening which is returning for a second year by popular demand, with over 30 craft beers from the best independent breweries and over 20 gins (so that’s me sorted then!).
There’ll be a different street food van each day, music from Americana good time band Swamp Truck on Friday and a home brew competition on Sunday.
Lifelong Cambridge residents Justin and Jemma Crane founded The Crane Event three years ago. Operating from their Mitcham’s Corner office (and assisted by office dogs Ludo and Shadow), they have fused Justin’s project management expertise with Jemma’s marketing experience to create a business which works mainly on corporate events both nationally and internationally.
Cambridge Event Bars has been providing bars and bar service throughout the UK to private and public events, as well as festivals, since 2014.
I’ve yet to visit Storey’s Field Centre at Eddington but I’ve noticed it coming up more and more as a venue for all sorts of Cambridge events. Justin tells me it’s a really beautiful new, fresh building, fully equipped and eco friendly with several flexible spaces inside. As the Eddington population grows, Storey’s Field Centre has become a focus for community as well as corporate events.
Getting to Eddington is easy. Either use the U bus or cycle (there’s plenty of cycle parking). If you decide to take the car, Madingley Park and Ride is just a five minute walk away.
Children are welcome at the Festival until 9pm each day and under 18’s get in free. Tickets are available on the door or you can pre-purchase through Eventbrite, where tickets are cheaper and will fast track you past any queues on the day.
