Video of Martin Atterbury on the Wurlitzer at Burton Beer Festival 2012, Burton-on-Trent.

Burton CAMRA beer festival took place last Thursday to Saturday. Here is a short video I took on Friday afternoon from the balcony. See my 2012 Burton Beer Festival post. for details.

This is a great venue for a beer festival, the entrance to the festival was the back entrance to Burton Town Hall. In the main hall beers were located all around in the archways (see in the video).
There used to be a another beer festival here in September but not for a few years now.

There was a large stage where Martin Atterbury would perform at lunchtimes and live entertainment in the evenings by retracting the Wurlitzer organ into the opening in the stage wall.
Ciders and more beers were located down two short corridors in the Lingen room. There was a food area serving meals and a quiet room too.

Here are a few tunes played by Martin Atterbury a the 33rd Burton CAMRA Beer Festival.
This was recorded on Friday 16th March 2012. 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.
