Hitchin Beer & Cider Festival
GOES WENT VIRTUAL!
On 4th to 6th June we planned to be hosting the 2020 HITCHIN BEER & CIDER FESTIVAL at HITCHIN RUGBY CLUB with HITCHIN ROUND TABLE
Instead we invited you to ‘FESTIVAL’ at home as well as join in some fun activities with us and your friends.
REAL ALE & CIDER and, in some cases food, were available from our PARTNER pubs and breweries. Go to our DEDICATED PAGE for the ordering links, these are still relevant ongoing.
We and our Partners offered PRIZES* for answering TRIVIA questions each day. Thursday/Friday prize-winners were announced that very evening/overnight. One winner even collected his 8 pints winnings and was pictured on Facebook and Instagram happily holding them!
Instagram was the main fun platform for this virtual event, especially for quizzes for prizes.
There was a Tiebreaker in the event the top 3 couldn’t be decided by results; the best comments would decide it. We asked, cross-media:
WHAT’VE YOU MISSED MOST ABOUT PUBS!
In the end, we didn’t need the tie-break, but some great comments have been coming in. Please continue to share your comments here and with your friends on social media so we can all see what you think.
More than 20,000 people visited our website, Facebook and Instagram in the week before and during the Festival. Were you one of them? If so please…
