2017 Worcester Beer Festival dates revealed and logo competition launched

Bromsgrove Editorial 14th Feb, 2017

ORGANISERS of the Worcester Beer, Cider and Perry Festival have revealed the date for this year’s event and an exciting new competition.

The annual celebration to hail the ale will take once again place at Worcester Racecourse from August 17 to 19.

Worcester’s Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) will once again host the event which has been moved slightly to fit around the racing calendar.

For the first time in the history of the festival, organisers are running a competition for someone to design a festival logo.

The winner of the competition will win a pair of tickets to this year’s festival, some festival beer/cider tokens and their logo may appear on the festival marketing material, t-shirts and souvenir glass.

There will also be two runner up prizes of a pair of festival tickets.

Creative city residents are asked to take into account the different formats that the logo will be used for ie posters, flyers, beer mats, t-shirts and glasses.

For most formats there are no colour limitations but the logo would need to be altered so that only one colour is used for the t-shirt version and up to six colours (black, grey, white and three others) used for the glass version.

Any changes required to fit the colour limitations would be carried out by the Worcester CAMRA festival.

Entrants must use the festival horse that has appeared on all of the festival logos since the festival has been held on the racecourse.

The logo can be drawn, painted or computer generated.

Anyone who would like to take part is asked to send their image to logocomp@worcesterbeerfest.org.uk by March 6.
