The historic Maids Head has sadly had to close it's doors

It is with a very heavy heart that we announced the closure of The Maids Head Hotel following the Government advise on Tuesday, 24th March, for what potentially is the first time in the Hotel's incredible 800 year history. We will initially remain closed until the end of April, but we will keep you updated as soon as we have some good news to share. Find out more in our blog post.

Norwich City of Ale – Maids Head Hotel Supports Cavell Nurses’ Trust

Norwich City of Ale

We are supporting the Cavell Nurses’ Trust’s #HereforNurses fundraising campaign during the Norwich City of Ale festival.

We will donate 10p to the Cavell Nurses’ Trust for every pint of draught Maids Head Ale and Woodforde’s Wherry served in the Maids Head Bar during the City of Ale festival, which runs from Friday, May 21 to Sunday, May 31.

The Maids Head has important links with the Edith Cavell story. Part of the hotel, acquired in 1956, was the former Cavell Home for District Nurses, opened by Queen Alexandra in 1918, at the same time as the unveiling of the Edith Cavell memorial. The main meeting room in this part of the hotel was renamed the Edith Cavell Room last December, when the Cavell Nurses’ Trust launched their centenary appeal at the Maids Head.

Christine Malcolm, General Manager, the Maids Head Hotel said: “We are looking forward to a busy City of Ale festival and are pleased to support the Cavell Nurses’ Trust’s #HereforNurses fundraising campaign.”

Stephen Charlton Chief Executive, Cavell Nurses’ Trust said: “In the last year Cavell Nurses’ Trust helped over 1,100 people with more than 7,100 years combined service to the public. However we want to double the number of nurses we are able to support.”

“It is fantastic the Maids Head is supporting our ‘#HereforNurses campaign by donating 10p from pints of draught beer sold during the City of Ale festival. I would encourage customers of the Maids Head to drink responsibly and to ‘top up’ their support with an additional donation at the bar.”
