28 December 2015: Press release

The 26th Sussex Beer & Cider Festival will be held at the Corn Exchange, Brighton, the same venue as the 25th Festival, on the 17th March – 19th March. There will be a similar selection to last year of real ales, ciders, perries and bottled beers from Britain and abroad.

The festival sessions with ticket prices are:

  • Thursday evening 5pm – 11pm £9
  • Friday lunchtime 11am – 3pm £5
  • Friday evening 5pm – 11pm £9
  • Saturday noon – 8pm† £8
  • Saturday – Door only 3.30pm – 8pm† £3 (Only with valid NUS ID)
    (or until the beer runs out if earlier)

Advance tickets will be on sale from the 11th January until the 11th March at: Evening Star, Brighton; Beer Essentials, Horsham; Gardeners Arms, Lewes; Duke of Wellington, Shoreham; Selden Arms, Worthing. To apply by post send a 9 x 4 SAE to SCBCF 16 Connell Drive, Woodingdean, Brighton BN2 6RT stating which session tickets are for and making cheques/POs payable to CAMRA Sussex Beer Festival. No advance tickets will be available for the NUS only Saturday tickets. No refunds will be processed after 9th March.

Tickets for the festival always sell very quickly, therefore to avoid disappointment on the day it is advisable to buy tickets for all the sessions; however a minimum of 150 tickets for each session will be available for purchase on the door 20 minutes after the start of each session.

The ticket price includes a festival programme and a souvenir glass. CAMRA members will receive £2 worth of beer tokens on production of their membership card at the Membership Stall.

As last year, there will be no entertainment or Trade Session and no under-18s will be allowed in the hall. ID wristbands will be issued to all attendees.

This year the festival charity will be SERV (Service by Emergency Rider Volunteers) Sussex.

The Corn Exchange has full disabled facilities and is well served by public transport.
