The 28th Norwich Beer Festival, St. Andrew's Hall, Norwich - 26th October 2005

The annual Brome Swan trip to the Norwich Beer Festival in St. Andrew's Hall occurs, in a chartered bus which takes us up from the pub right to the entrance. Luckily we have advance tickets and so skip right past the huge queue that creeps all around the corner almost to Elm Hill. As ever, the festival is faultless, although it's unusually hot and humid in the hall - outside was still around 13°C, compared to -2°C about eight years before. Much beer is consumed, and the Cawston Silver Band is in attendance again. It's also the first real test of a large-scale event with the new-ish super-wide-angle lens: it's always amusing what people will do for the camera if they think you're from the press
