Following the major fire at the Battersea Arts Centre on Friday 13th March 2015 there is NO CAMRA South West London Battersea Beer Festival in 2016 at this venue.

Fortunately there were no casualties however the halls at Battersea Arts Centre will not be available for the forseeable future.
The current plans envisage the new Grand Hall opening in the Autumn of 2018 - see latest news on the Home Page.

If you wish to make a donation to the BAC Phoenix Fund you can do so at don8.to/BAC012.

We hope to be back for future festivals but this won't be before 2019 once the rebuilding is completed in late 2018.
Until then we are investigating possible venues for a festival later in the year in 2016 and/or 2017 and 2018. However, any suitable location is unlikely to be in Battersea.

Check back to this website or see camraswl.org.uk for news of any alternative event such as the Battersea Ale Trail we organised in February 2015 as the BAC halls were closed for refurbishment at the time.
