Welcome to the Sussex Beer Festival

The 25th Festival will run from
19-21 March 2015
at the Brighton Corn Exchange


27 January 2015: Friday night mail order tickets sold out

Mail order tickets for Friday night have sold out. We will update the website (time permitting, e.g. the webmaster is away this coming weekend and most weekends in February!) with more reports from mail order and our pub outlets when we get them.


16 January 2015: Staffing forms now online

The new 2015 staffing forms have been added to the website this evening (and the email address corrected on Sat 17 January to a working yahoo.co.uk one).

Please note that the Staffing Officer has changed and the address previously used to receive forms (e.g. for the 2014 Festival) will no longer reach us. Anyone who has incorrectly completed and posted a 2014 form to a Brighton address will need to re-submit a new form using the new details or we will not know that you want to volunteer. Whilst we should hopefully be able to accommodate walk-up requests from volunteers known to us, it does mean that we may not have a t-shirt or transport for you.


8 January 2015: Corrections

There will be a minimum of 100 tickets (not 200) on the door for each session. The prices for Thursday and Friday lunchtime sessions is £5 (not £6 as originally stated).


5 January 2015: Ticket outlets confirmed, sales start in two weeks

The ticket outlets have now been confirmed, along with the address for mail order tickets. Please note that there will be no box office or online sales for the 2015 festival. No advance tickets will be available for the Saturday evening.

The postal address of the venue is Corn Exchange, Church Street, Brighton, BN1 1UE.


16 October 2014: Session times and prices announced

After being held at Hove Town Hall for the past 24 years, the 25th Sussex Beer & Cider Festival will be held at the Corn Exchange, Church Street, Brighton on the 19th March – 21st March. To help celebrate our Silver Anniversary there will be an excellent but smaller selection than in previous years of real ales, ciders, perries and bottled beers from Britain and abroad.

The festival sessions with ticket prices are:

  • Thursday lunchtime 11am – 3pm £5
  • Thursday evening 5pm – 11pm £8
  • Friday lunchtime 11am – 3pm £5
  • Friday evening 5pm – 11pm £8
  • Saturday 12pm – 10pm (or until the beer runs out if earlier) £8 (£4 after 5pm)

Advance ticket sales will start on 19th January 2015, and there will be no advance sales for the post-5pm session on Saturday.

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 100 tickets for each session will be available for purchase on the door.

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.
