Factfile: Peterborough Beer Festival
More than 105,000 pints of beer have been ordered so far and a couple of thousand are still to be ordered.
About 350 different draught beers from 119 different breweries will be on sale.
There will also be 11,872 bottles of European and American beer ordered from11 different countries, 10,240 pints of traditional cider and perrywith 51 different ciders and 18 different perries.
About 15,000 glasses are being made in five different styles, from the traditional jug to a small pint glass.
More than 1,281 casks of beer will arrive on the Saturday before the festival opens.
More than 300 volunteers will man he bars and do the 101 other jobs needed to build, run and dismantle the festival.
Two pallets of toilet paper will be used during the five day festival.
1,500 metres of fencing will be erected by the volunteers to surround the site.
Chairman for the Peterborough branch of CAMRA, David Murray, who helps to organise the event, said: "The last few years have seen about 35,000 people turn up.
"But this year we are hoping to increase that, because we are due a week of better weather. The record we got some years ago, before we got drenched, was around 44,000, so we're hoping to top that.
"Obviously there's the credit crunch too, so we just can't tell what the attendance will be.
"But I have been to other festivals around the country and they have all increased in attendance, so we think the main thing people are thinking is saving their cash in favour of quality, rather than quantity."
Secretary of the Peterborough branch of CAMRA, Harry Morten said: "We started organising it back in January time, so it takes quite a bit to get it done and there's a committee of 12 of us who do it.
"Everyone has their different responsibilities, like bottled beers, food vendors and the staff as that is very important too.
"We are definitely looking forward to it. I think the two most significant events are when we open the gates for the first time because we know that's it and it's open, and the other is when we shut them again for the last time on the last day."
The event, which is managed and staffed solely by volunteers, will once again be raising vital funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute.
In the past, visitors' spare change has bought the service two D-class inshore lifeboats and an Atlantic class boat.
"This year we are hoping to raise money for a D-class boat going to Skegness," added Mr Murray.
