Bracknell Ale & Wine Festival 2016 is quite literally around the corner. The event is all but organised and all we need now is you, the crowd!

But why should you part with your hard earned cash and pay us a visit? Here’s seven reasons why you should pop down Bracknell Rugby Club on Sunday 29th May 2016.

30+ real ales, wine and cider. Plus food. Plus live music.

We have the most of everything we’ve ever had this year. More beer, more wine, more cider, more food and more music.

We’ve got everything from spiced rum ale to glorious traditional cider and tasty goat curry to delicious yet humble bangers.

Ale fest. That’s old boys with beards right?

Wrong. Beer festivals are more popular than ever before and bring in the widest range of ages you could think of.

Look at these guys having a great time..!

Enjoying the festival!

It’s really easy to get to

If you are from Bracknell, we’re right next door to the running horse. If you are heading in from out of town then you’ll need to head to Lily Hill Drive, Bracknell RG12 2UG.

Parking on site is limited but our friends at Courtney Buses are putting on a festival shuttle bus from Bracknell Bus Station – opposite the railway station. Details on times and fare’s is here.

We’re supporting your community

Bracknell Rugby Club gives opportunities to hundreds and hundreds of kids and adults every single week.

It’s not owned by a ‘sugar daddy’ and like most sports clubs local to us relies on fundraising to keep going.

The beer festival is run by volunteers dedicated to supporting that effort and offering Bracknell what we believe is a great day out.

Coming along won’t break the bank

Getting in to Bracknell Ale & Wine Festival is going to cost you £7 as an adult on the day. That’s for the whole day.

If you want to save a couple of ££s then you can buy tickets in advance for £5 online here. There are also at least three ways to get free tickets which we think is excellent.

We’re ready come rain or shine

There will be a marquee on site, it’s twice as long as the marquee we had last year at 42 metres.

Whatever the weather, we’ve got you covered.

Supporting local businesses

The organising committee try as much as possible to use local businesses when putting the event together. Whether it’s the beer, the food or even printing the tickets. We go to great lengths to bring you the best in local, and our favourites from slightly further afield.

Like the good Captain here.

Tickets are on sale for Bracknell Ale & Wine Festival now priced £5 adults in advance and £2.50 concessions.
