Sadly, 2020 was a year without an Ulverston Beer Festival. Whether or not 2021 will see its return is currently unknown as this pandemic drags on.
Judging by advice from CAMRA, if there is any chance of putting on a Festival in 2021 then it will be unlikely to be exactly the same format as previously as there are so many issues around social distancing, anti-viral measures for glasses and keeping tables disinfected that would need to be sorted. Beer festivals have moved online in some areas (The Winter Great British Beer Festival, for example) which is nowhere near the same as a physical Festival.
All we can do now is keep our options open and hope things improve immensely before summer but that seems to be a bit optimistic at present (February).
In the meantime, of course, we still have our social media feeds to keep you all up-to-date with the latest information so keep watching!
