Bath Beer and Cider Festival 2024

Friday 16 – Saturday 17 February 2024

We will be holding our annual Beer & Cider Festival on Friday 16th Feb 2024 (16:00 – 23:00) and Saturday 17th Feb 2024 (11:00 – 19:00). BOTH SESSIONS FULLY SOLD OUT

Entry to each session costs £10 and includes £3-worth of beer/cider tokens, a printed programme, and a festival glass (a substantial number of 2024 commemorative glasses will be available at both sessions on a first come first served basis , but depending on 2024 attendance, some visitors may be offered glassware from earlier festivals instead). Both Friday and Saturday sessions for the Feb 2023 event sold out a few weeks beforehand and tickets were not available on the door so advance purchase is strongly recommended. TICKETS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR

Card carrying CAMRA members will receive an additional £2 of beer tokens at the event.

Expect some 30 real ales and up to 8 real ciders, including many local producers and others from further afield. As always, these come carefully selected to cater for a range of tastes, enabling festival goers to enjoy plenty of your favourite styles with the opportunity to try something new. At the end of the 2023 event we still had 23 beers on sale and we expect there to be good choice at both 2024 sessions .

The festival will once again be held at Widcombe Social Club, a stone’s throw from Bath Spa train station. Widcombe Social Club is a non-profit community focused venue hosting a wide range of events throughout the year. It is not necessary to bring your own food as a range of hot food, ploughman's lunches and non-alcoholic refreshments will be available during both sessions.
