When Sunderland Beer and Cider Festival #SundFest2020 had to be cancelled because of COVID19 we were confident we would bounce straight back in 2021. However that is not the case! Current restrictions and uncertainty about restrictions still existing in October plus how this would impact our event have made it difficult to put in place the funding & planning arrangements needed.
It’s with disappointment that we confirm there will be no Sunderland Beer and Cider Festival #SundFest2021.
We hope that instead all our regular visitors will continue to support cask ale & real cider in a safe way in the local pubs & venues as they struggle to recover from the impacts of the virus & its restrictions on their businesses.
We hope to return with Sunderland Beer and Cider Festival #SundFest2022.
