The CAMRA Burton Beer Festival 2013 runs from Thursday 26th March to Saturday 28th March.
This is a great venue for a beer festival. In the main hall beers are located all around in the archways (see in the video).
There is a large stage where Martin Atterbury will perform on Friday/Saturday lunchtimes and live entertainment in the evenings by retracting the Wurlitzer organ into the opening in the stage wall.
Ciders and more beers are located down two short corridors in the Lingen room. There is also a food area serving meals and a quiet room too.
Here in my video you can watch a few tunes played by Martin Atterbury at last years Burton Beer Festival.
It features Martin Atterbury on the Wurlitzer at Burton Town Hall.
This Wurlitzer organ is from Cleveland Ohio where it was manufactured in 1921. After a fire in the Cinema, the organ was shipped to England in 1939 and installed in The Forum at Northenden, Manchester.
In 1971 the organ was purchased by Burton Council and installed in Burton Town Hall where it has been ever since.
