Slight lack of planning

What's the one essential ingredient for a successful beer festival?

Yes I know - but they did a huge increase in visitors
"The festival normally attracts about 3,000 people over three days, but about 3,800 had already attended by Saturday night, ...."
Good to see more people appreciating quality ale  Smiley Smiley

Good stuff, although beer festivals quite often include cider as well. I've no problem with that because there are a huge variety of ciders out there, of differing taste and quality, but it's not ale  Undecided
I don't know about the heartfordshire one but the one in my hometown bury st edmunds is usually overun by Americans come the 3rd day/night. Also not necessarily a bad thing, just an observation.

Re: Slight lack of planning

But you would definitely expect the Herefordshire festival to have cider - of all places !!.
PS Not Hertfordshire !  Shocked
