Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival
WITH OVER ONE THOUSAND REAL ALES!
Nottingham Castle - Wednesday 7th to Saturday 10th October 2015
Tickets Are Going On Sale For Nottingham's Annual World Beating Beer & Cider Extravaganza. Yes, the beer and cider festival that offers the world’s biggest selection of draught cask conditioned beers and over 200 real ciders is back brighter and bigger than ever.
Tickets go on sale from Monday 1st June, so get in early as last year Friday and Saturday tickets had sold out by early August.
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, on the Victorian bandstand.
Tickets are again being sold as a package, which includes a commemorative glass (refundable at £2.50) and 15 beer tokens (refundable at 50p each) - two tokens will buy you a third of most beers and ciders and three will buy a half pint. Note that beer prices have been held yet again, which means £3 a pint for all but the strongest beers and ciders. CAMRA members are given a further five tokens on production of a current membership card on entry.
You can bring your own Govt. stamped glass if you wish - but if you want to drink thirds it must have a third of a pint line on it as we will have no measures available. Customers can opt to take an extra 5 tokens in lieu of a commemorative tankard if they wish.
The package price for all day, any time, admission on Thursday is £17.50 which is the same price as last year when you factor in the additional (refundable) tokens. On Friday and Saturday the price will be £20, again these prices include more beer tokens than in previous years. On the Wednesday evening this price is discounted to a bargain £10 and the same price is offered for, cash payers only, on Saturday evenings, although in both cases admission will only include ten tokens.
'EarlyBird' tickets are available on Friday and Saturday for those who wish to enter the festival before 1pm, but please be aware there are no pass-outs or re-admissions. This is for advance ticket holders only, not for customers paying on the gate, and the discounted price for EarlyBird tickets is £17.50. Customers with an EarlyBird ticket will not be admitted after 1:00pm and the tickets are not refundable.
Cash entry will be possible at the full prices quoted above (no EarlyBird discounts). However entry is dependent on available space in the grounds and there may be queues at peak times, and occasionally cash entry will have to be suspended altogether. This is why we strongly recommend you buy advance tickets to this massively popular event, as this guarantees access.
So go on get your advance tickets NOW - you know it makes sense!
Tickets can be purchased online 24 hours a day at SeeTickets.com, transaction fees apply, or over the counter with no transaction fees at the Nottingham Tourism Centre, Smithy Row - Opening hours: Monday to Saturday – 9:30am to 5:30pm, plus Sundays in July and August from 11am - 5pm.
