2020 Real Ale Festival postponed5th May 2020

2020 Rea Ale Festival Cancelled

It is with much sadness that we have to announce the 2020 Epping Ongar Railway beer festival has been postponed into 2021.

Whilst it is not yet clear what Government restrictions might still be in place, and with the required lead times requiring stock to be ordered now, the festival committee worked hard to think about how we might be able to run a festival which could meet the social distancing measures and be financially viable. Alas it was not to be.

We live in hope that any restrictions may be lifted before the end of the year and a few of the committee members are investigating whether it would be possible to run some sort of ale train later in the year. Keep an eye on the website for the latest news.

We look forward to returning in 2021, with an eclectic mix of ales, buses, ciders and trains.
