With just days to go to Eastbourne’s annual beer festival (October 10 to 12), there are only a handful of tickets left.

Tickets have already sold out for Friday and Saturday night sessions, but spaces are available for Thursday evening and Saturday day sessions. This years festival is again organised by the Council and CAMRA’s SE Sussex branch and returns with a mouth watering array of British ales from local brews the ‘Star of Eastbourne’ and Beachy Head’s ‘Legless Rambler’ to a ‘Wobbly Bob’, ‘Monkey Town’, ‘Dragons Blood’ and ‘Plucking Pheasant’. With ales on tap, ciders and perries, world wines, international bottled beers and thirst quenching juices, the festival has something for everyone.

Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism and Leisure, Cllr Carolyn Heaps said “The beer festival is an annual excitement and with so many tickets already sold, this years is set for a very busy weekend. The three day festival incorporates an excellent range of drinks and fantastic entertainment. I encourage all to grab your tickets for Thursday evening and Saturday day before it’s too late!”

Tickets remain for sessions running on Thursday 6 – 11pm and Saturday 11am – 4pm. For details, including ticket prices, visit www.eastbournebeerfestival.co.uk or call 412000.
