The organisers of Norwich Beer Festival have revealed their plans for 2024 ahead of the event's traditional city centre venue closing for major works. 

Bosses at the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) have confirmed a pubs festival featuring local breweries is likely to take place next year - but it is "unlikely" to go ahead at The Halls.

It comes as the grade I listed site, which has hosted the event since the 1970s, is set to close for the entirety of 2024 as part of a £3.6m revamp.

A Camra spokesman said: "Due to critical repairs which have been scheduled to take place in 2024 at The Halls it is looking extremely unlikely to take place in its current form.

"Whilst other venues are being considered, the likelihood is that there will be a pubs festival, which will feature local breweries, and be an opportunity for regular festival goers and volunteers to come together and enjoy the real ale pubs of Norwich and beyond. 

"Dates and details will be announced in 2024."

This year's event ran between October 23 and October 28 at The Halls.

Attendance figures ran well over the previous year and the festival's charity Brave Futures - which supports children who have experienced sexual abuse - raised £11,900 from generous attendees.

More than £900 was also raised for the Royal British Legion poppy appeal. 

"None of this could be done without our wonderful volunteering team, who have a wealth of knowledge and expertise," said festival organiser Craig Harmer.

"Thank you also to the volunteers of the charity, Brave Futures. We’re delighted to hear of the kindness of the attendees which shows what a wonderful experience the festival really is.

"We would also like to thank our fantastic sponsors, First Bus, Woodforde’s Brewery, Barsham Brewery, Lacons Brewery, World Beer Awards, The Belgian Monk and Crisp Malt, without whom the festival couldn’t go ahead."
