With the 35th Norwich beer festival now a hazy memory, thoughts are turning to the 36th festival and the search for a new logo to promote the event, which will run from Monday, October 28.
This year’s festival was hailed a success, although visitor numbers were slightly down on previous years with about 19,000 people through the door and sales down by about 5pc.
Festival organiser Martin Ward said: “Judging from the feedback from customers, volunteers and brewers, the festival can be classed another success. Comments on the beer and range available were mostly positive, with the public very happy with the range of styles. The tasting sessions were well received again.”
The event was organised by the Norwich and Norfolk branch of Camra, whose charity, Norfolk Lowland Search and Rescue (Norlsar), raised £3,500, which will be used to buy essential items to enable the volunteers to perform future searches and rescues.
Entries are being sought for next year’s logo with the winner set to receive £100, the under-18 winner a book voucher, with 10 runner-up prizes of free festival tickets.
Last year’s winning logo by Anthony Miles incorporated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in its design.
The festival fits in with the Evening News Love your Local campaign.
