North Norfolk Railway Beer Festival

REAL ALE IS RAIL ALE! CHEERS!

North Norfolk Railway Beer Festival

Sheringham Station, Friday 13th – Sunday 15th July

With steam trains simmering gently in the background, the annual North Norfolk Railway Beer Festival has become one of Britain’s best-loved beerfests. The 11th Festival kicks off on Friday 13th July (real ale buffs not being superstitious!) at 11.00am in the atmospheric surroundings of Sheringham’s lovingly restored Victorian station.

Open while stocks last from 11.00am to 11.00pm on the Friday and Saturday, and to 4.30pm on the Sunday, the Festival will showcase over 100 beers, ciders and perries from across the UK.

Hot food will be available day and evening, souvenir glasses and polo shirts will be on sale, and the great line-up of live entertainment will make sure everything goes with a swing.
