Visit the a swift one site

Rumour has been rife around the Town's beer drinkers that this years 'Oktoberfest', Huddersfield Camra's beer festival, will not take place. 'A Swift One' has learned that this is not the case and it will go ahead as usual.

I was speaking to a source yesterday who advised me that, although there has been a change in the Beer Festival Committee that has delayed budget approval for the festival, plans are in place that should mean that arrangements will be made in the next couple of weeks to get the necessary authority and the festival will go ahead as intended.

The beer numbers will be similar to last years event and it will be held at the same venue, which was deemed a success, both in the choice of venue and the number of beers available. As yet, much is in the embroynic stage but, all being well, the second week in October should see the Sikh Leisure Centre host its second event.

We hope all goes well in the planning and Huddersfield again has a beer festival to be proud of.
