In previous years we have allowed various beer festivals to promote their events at our festival with the consequence that at our 2017 event we were inundated with posters and flyers advertising in particular 2 non-CAMRA festivals which made tables messy and needed to be cleaned up by our volunteers and caused a potential trip hazard when they were scattered around the floor and then took up a couple of hours volunteer time in taking the posters down on the Sunday morning.
The Wigan CAMRA Festival Organising Committee have regretfully concluded that we need to adopt a policy approach to advertising within our event.
We have a duty to support our fellow CAMRA branches and will therefore permit a maximum of 2 posters to be displayed advertising a CAMRA or in association with CAMRA event. There will also be a leaflet table where flyers can be left.
A similar policy will apply in regard to promotional material by our sponsors. Please do not put flyers out on the tables as these will be binned by our volunteers.
