The two month countdown is upon us with Bracknell Ale & Cider Festival 2017 fast approaching at Bracknell Rugby Club, but what’s been confirmed so far for the big day on Sunday 28th May?

More barrels, many more..

We have experienced unbelievable demand over the last few years with the beer running out early. Every year we order more, every year more and more of you come and enjoy yourselves (this is an incredibly amazing and humbling thing for us – but we don’t want to be known for running out of beer!). This year we are striking deals with breweries to provide spares, and we will be ordering more than ever.

More food stalls

We’ve increased the number of food stalls too eight with some already revealed on the Courtney Buses Food Court page here including our brilliant new festival sponsors Biltong Emporium who will be there on the day.

The festival bus

Talking of Courtney Buses, the shuttle bus from Bracknell Bus Station will be in service again getting you to and from the site and we are looking at ways of enabling you to purchase bus tickets in advance.

Live music

We have the likes of local singer songwriter and crowd favourite Abi Powell lined up again along with the excellent St Sebastien’s Brass Band and foot stomping Robert and the Remoulds with more to come.

Tickets from as little as £1

The best bit of course is that entry to the festival at Bracknell Rugby Club starts from £1 for CAMRA and local sports club members – details of those here.

There is money to be saved as well on advanced online tickets for adults and concessions with those available for £6 and £3 if your purchase them via our online ticket sale site here.

And there are a few ways to get free tickets.. those are detailed here.
