WELCOME TO HOME PAGE OF THE 2014 NOTTINGHAM ROBIN HOOD BEER AND CIDER FESTIVAL
Wednesday 8th - Saturday 11th October, 2014
The 2014 Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival is rolling into town ..........
Marquees at the top site nearly complete - thanks to Tim Freer for the updates! (30.09.2014)
The first truck arrives at the Castle Main gates (29.09.2014) - oooh! Looks like a tight squeeze!
The scaffolding starts to go up (29.09.2014).
OVER ONE THOUSAND CRAFT BEERS!
Nottingham Castle - Wednesday 8th to Saturday 11th October 2014
Yes - the beer and cider festival that offers the world’s biggest selection of draught cask conditioned beers, and over 200 real ciders and perries is back; brighter and bigger than ever.
Urgent Ticket Updates
ON-LINE PURCHASES CLOSED
The festival is again being held in the wonderful grounds of Nottingham Castle right in the city centre and as in previous years will not be all-ticket. A full programme of entertainment will again be offered all day from Wednesday evening to Saturday, down on the bandstand.
All beers and ciders that are ready will be on sale, except the limited number that are being judged in the SIBA competition the next day, which should mean around 650 different cask beers will be available to try. This gives you a chance to sample some of our rare and interesting beers ahead of the traditional Thursday opening and at a discounted admission price.
The East Midlands CAMRA Regional Cider Competition will be being held during the Wednesday evening, so you will be able to view this if you wish.
Festival opening hours are: Wednesday 8th - 6:00pm to 11:00pm, Thursday 9th to Saturday 11th - 11:00am to 11:00pm .
URGENT TICKET UPDATE - 11th September 2014
*NEW* The last day to purchase tickets online is Sunday 28th September, to allow time for them to be mailed out. After that date they will still be available at the Nottingham Tourism Centre. However as the remaining tickets are for Wednesday and Thursday only you should have no problems with paying cash at the gate on the day
All advance tickets for Friday and Saturday have now sold out! There is limited cash admission possible but experience in past years has shown that most available spaces go quite quickly after opening, with queues forming beforehand; once these have gone admission is on a "one in one out" basis with long waiting times.
Admission on Saturday evening is usually easier as customers leave after the capacity afternoon session and we offer a discounted price for entry after 7pm.
*NEW* : Cash admission is discounted to £12.50 after 7.30pm on Saturday evening.
Admission for Wednesday evening and Thursday is usually possible on the gate although it is always preferable to buy advance tickets if possible.
Considering the already proven overwhelming response to the Robin Hood Beer and Festival 2014 would you risk missing out on an unprecedented advertising opportunity in the information/feature packed programme available to the thousands who will attend this year?
