Welcome to the Sussex Beer Festival

The 28th Festival will be held on Thurs 22nd - Sat 24th March 2018 once again at Brighton Racecourse.

18 January: various updates

Courtesy of Ursula, we now have a map of the bus stops around the Racecourse on our Venue page, and we hope to bring you details of the shuttle pick-up point at Brighton Station shortly.

We've also updated the Ticket Outlets page with info for the Tower, the Eagle and reinstated the Brewery Shades, as well as corrected a glitch on the session times listed on our Tickets page. Remember: tickets go on sale on Monday 22 January (when your webmaster is on holiday, so don't expect another reminder beforehand!).

Finally, this year's poster is now online (click on the thumbnail for a full size version).

11 January 2018: New festival artwork for 2018

Our regular festival artist Richard Stone has outdone himself again with a striking new racehorse-themed logo. You can see it on the left of each page, and also look back over each of Richard's excellent designs from 2010 to date in our Festival Artwork gallery.

8 January 2018: Volunteer form now available

The volunteer form has now been updated: please complete and return this to our new staffing email address by 31 January so we can plan (and get a t-shirt to fit you).

3 January 2018: Beer festival updates (and full press release)

We are off again for the Sussex CAMRA Branches 2018 Festival. The 28th Sussex Beer & Cider Festival will be at Brighton Racecourse, Freshfield Road, Brighton BN2 9XZ from Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 March 2018.

To show case the 60 breweries in the county, we are pleased to reinstate the ever popular Sussex Bar.

A variety of food will also be on sale, including vegetarian, vegan options and soft drinks.

This year, all the beer will be cooled throughout the festival. This means that it should be in the same excellent condition on the Saturday evening as it is when we open on Thursday.

Details on session times and ticket prices can be found on our Tickets page, and we have a couple of new (far) East Sussex outlets listed on our Ticket Outlets page as well: tickets go on sale from 18 January.

The full press release can be seen here.
