Real Ale Festival - Beer Barrels Real Ale Festival - Bar

Our 6th Real Ale Festival will be held between 20 and 22 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 2018!

Our bars will be open from 12.00 each day with late closing on Friday and Saturday. As well as the main marquee we plan to have bars onboard the trains which will continue to run until closing time

Steam and Diesel trains will be in operation

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!!)

More details including, real ales, ciders, and everything else you need to ensure you have a great time with us will be put on this webpage later as our plans evolve.
