The Robin Hood Beer Festival has been held at the Castle site since 2009 and in 2010 the festival was extended into the City by virtue of ‘Festival Fringe Fortnight’ – providing an opportunity for a selection of city centre pubs to showcase their fine foods and local beers and ciders during the week before and after the festival.
In 2011 Festival Fringe Fortnight (FFF) was extended to include venues with entertainment and for the 2016 Festival it is hoped that even more will take place. Pubs interested in joining in FFF are required to offer at least one of the following:

The Beer Festival web site also has details of other FFF events where pubs selling local ales are putting on entertainment and special beer festivals and events.
Festival Fringe Fortnight was originally conceived by Dave Green, former manager of the Castle, who In August 2008 suggested that Nottingham CAMRA might like to transfer the annual beer festival to the grounds of Nottingham Castle - the rest is as they say history.
Dave’s concept for the festival was that it should be seen not just as an opportunity to showcase the best in beer and ciders but a chance to promote the City of Nottingham and to remind people, both far and near, what the City has to offer. So look and see what is on offer for 2013.
