Hitchin Beer & Cider Festival 2020 Goes Virtual! Quiz Winners


We had very good participation on Instagram, to which this quiz-style is best suited, but actually, Ian Albert, our CAMRA best of Festival Top 3 winner, sent his answers by instant message and, Alan Southgate, by good-old fashioned email! That’s multi-media!

It was clear that on Saturday, some players quizzed all day and evening! I hope you had a Partners’ drink with you all the time.

Thanks to our Partners and everyone who visited our website, Instagram and Facebook and took part

You made Hitchin Virtual Festival REAL! Please continue to share pictures and comments, about the festival or what you miss most about pubs. You can leave comments here and on Facebook and share pictures on Instagram, Facebook or email them to mailto:photos@northherts.camra.org.uk

Big cheers,

from CAMRA North Hertfordshire Committee
and personally from,
Dean Barrett, Publicity Officer and Quizmaster for the weekend,
Elia Vallejo, Creatives and Instagram advisor, and
Jon Kirby, Festival Organiser


  • Thanks for all your hard work, together with all the support from the Partners, in putting on such a fun virtual festival last weekend. It would be interesting to see the correct answers to all the quiz questions. Please can you post the answers?

    • Thank you, Alan, indeed I will post answers. Winners have been getting in contact all evening (Monday), so once I’ve reached them all, then the answers will go up. And a few back stories, too.
