TICKETS for the Eastbourne Beer Festival are going on sale on Monday, July 18, following a sell-out success last year.

More than 4,600 visitors packed into the Winter Garden last autumn as the Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening sessions sold out with festival goers enjoying more than 14,400 pints during the three day event.

This year Eastbourne Beer Festival takes place from October 27-29 and real ale lovers can book their tickets from Monday (July 18) with the ninth year of the event promising over 100 real ales, bottled beers from around the world, a top selection of local wines, ciders and perries plus plenty of live entertainment.

The Beer Festival drinks menu contains more than 100 real ales from across the globe; from Legless Rambler made just down the road at Beachy Head Brewery to Brahma Crop and Mac’s Gold.

It’s not just drinks on the menu at the Eastbourne Beer Festival either; the event offers a packed programme of live entertainment, including bands Howlin’ Blues, Band of Two and Smugg Jam, Morris dancing with Long Man Morris and Hunters Moon Morris and the Ragati String Band.

Last year tickets for the Friday and Saturday evening sessions sold out before doors even opened with the remaining Thursday night tickets going quickly on the door and organisers Eastbourne Borough Council and CAMRA are looking forward to another busy year. With pub grub on the menu throughout the event plus entertainment including live music, traditional pub games and a family quiz during the Saturday day time sessions, there will be plenty to keep festival fans busy this autumn.
