Each year, the Nottingham Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival hosts the regional round of the national search to find the best cider and perry makers in the UK. The winner of our cider and perry competition goes forward to the National CAMRA Cider & Perry Competition held in Reading in May of the following year.
The competition to find our Champion cider and perry takes place early on the Wednesday evening so do look out for the Gold, Silver and Bronze rosettes on the East Midlands Cider Bar which will identify the winners in each category.
Please support our Local and Regional cidermakers.
Note that only Heritage Real Cider and Perry are allowed to enter the CAMRA competitions.

HERITAGE CIDERS AND PERRIES
Nottingham CAMRA is proud to support and promote true Heritage Cider and Perry.
Heritage Cider & Perry recognises and respects the true tradition - dating back millennium - of only using apples and pears to make truly real cider and perry. We will not be stocking any “flavoured ciders”.
All of the producers will be featured and on sale from the start of the festival, but due to space restrictions, we may not be able to get every single cider and perry in the bar. Please bear with us.
The producers are organised alphabetically. There is a dedicated East Midlands Cider Bar in the Main Marquee (top tent) and a dedicated Welsh Cider Bar in the Entertainment Marquee (lower tent).
To help identify the ciders and perries on the bar, the ABV posters will feature a red apple icon for cider and a green pear icon for perry. ABVs will be clearly printed on the ABV posters on the bars.
Please respect the ABV of these drinks and act responsibly in your choice.
