Norwich Beer Festival logo unveiled

Norwich & Norfolk Campaign For Real Ale have unveiled the winning logo for the 33rd Norwich Beer Festival.

As usual the entries were of a universally high standard. With a large number of entries to choose from, the judging process went on slightly longer than it usually does as members debated the merits of the designs.

Eventually, after whittling the entries down to a final two, Katy Mavilio, of Hellesdon, was declared the winner with her design of a “Halloween” Dragon emerging from a pumpkin. The runners-up will be on display at the festival in October

Katy, when contacted by Mark Stimpson, the competition co-ordinator, was flabbergasted and at a loss for words when told she had won the competition.

Martin Ward, Festival Organiser, commented: “The quality of the designs this year was up to its usual high standard, and to be judged the winner from so many excellent entries is testament to the robustness of the design”.

Katy can look forward to a winner's cheque for £100, plus a selection of festival merchandise for her efforts.

Although planning is at an early stage, as in previous years, we aim to provide an exceptional range of quality real ales and ciders from not only Norfolk but other outstanding breweries around the country.

This year's beer festival runs from Monday 25th to Saturday 30th October at its usual venue of St. Andrew's & Blackfriars' Halls, Norwich.
