Real Ale Festival20, 21, 22 July
- Cask Ales
- Live music on and off the trains
- Trains and buses run into the evening on Friday and Saturday
- Our biggest Real Ale Festival to date!
Our 7th Real Ale Festival will be held between 19 and 21 July.
The event has grown over the years and we expect this trend to continue - expect more beers, lots of trains and more fun in 2019!
We will be featuring over 75 different beers, over 20 ciders and the popular real ale trains where the on-board bars allow passengers to buy a beer on the move.
The festival has built its success on buying from small independent brewers across London and Essex. Expect the same again this year, perhaps with a few far flung guests too!
As well as the main marquee we plan to have bars with at least 10 real ales onboard the trains which will continue to run until closing time.
Steam and Diesel trains will be in operation and your ticket is valid for unlimited travel.
Leave the car behind!
It's easy to get to us, connecting heritage buses will link North Weald station with Epping Underground (Central Line) and Shenfield (National Rail) stations. Last bus to Epping will be at 2200 hours (but we won't leave anyone behind!!) - see below for times.
More details will be added to this page as our plans develop.
Tickets will be on sale later in 2019. Why not follow us on Facebook and Twitter, or sign up to our newsletter via our homepage, to be among the first to hear when tickets go on sale?
