The CAMRA chair addresses the drinkers at
the 2010 festival in the Sacrisbrick Hotel.
After a couple of months of uncertainty, it has now been confirmed that the 12th Sandgrounder Southport Beer Festival will take place for the second year running at the Scarisbrick Hotel Southport in the Barker and Isherwood suites from 22nd to 24th September 2011 - dates for your diary.
The venue isn't ideal, but you'd be suprised how short of options the CAMRA branch has been and all the various suggestions I've been given by interested people have already been explored by the branch. For those who don't know, CAMRA had to leave the previous venue, the Southport Arts Centre, when it was closed for major refurbishment by the council.
I'll post more information as I get it. The CAMRA branch website link is here.
