Hinckley Beer Festival 2018
Unfortunately for 2018, the Hinckley Beer Festival did not go ahead despite every effort being made to save this event, as Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council were unable to guarantee the use of the Atkins Building. Alternative locations have been investigated, but because of timing issues and subsequent non availability of key festival organisation staff, it was decided that there will be no Hinckley Beer Festival this year.
However, in the absence of a CAMRA Hinckley & Bosworth Beer Festival this year, five town pubs collaborated to organise a HEART of HINCKLEY BEER FESTIVAL for Thursday 13th to Saturday 15th September 2018. This festival involved The Pestle and Mortar, The Greyhound, The New Plough Inn, The Elbow Room Alehouse and The Railway Steamin' Billy, occupied the dates normally associated with the Hinckley & Bosworth CAMRA Beer Festival.
