Guildford Beer Festival dates announced for 2016
Friday 10 June & Saturday 11 June
The Seventh Annual Guildford Beer Festival will take place on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th June 2016 at Guildford Cricket Club in Woodbridge Road.
Tickets will go on sale on 1 March 2016 and will be available online on our Guildford Beer Festival website and also available via the Guildford Tourist Information Office at 155 High Street in Guildford Town Centre.
Chad Murrin, Commercial Manager said: “The GBF has become something of a Guildford Summer institution. It is a very popular event – nearly 4,000 attended last Summer. We have tried to improve the event each year we have had it but we won’t be making big changes to what is a very successful format. The event will again be held in marquees and outdoors at Guildford Cricket Club, the focus will be on beers from local independent and microbreweries and craft ciders, and there will be the usual attractive live music programme.”
New GBF Chairman
James Faulkner has succeeded Chad Murrin as GBF Chairman. James joined the GBF Committee in 2012 and has led on the selection of the Beer List.
James Faulkner commented: “I’m delighted to become Chairman of the Guildford Beer Festival for 2016. Having been involved in the GBF for a number of years, it has been fantastic to see it develop into the event it is today. The rest of the committee and I are looking forward to continuing to build on this success for 2016.”
James is supported by Steve Page (Operations), Steve Currie (Finance) and Chad Murrin (Commercial) and the rest of the Committee.

This has been an amazing season for the team, 28 matches unbeaten and with only 1 defeat last year they continually prove themselves to have both playing ability and a mental determination not to be beaten.
