North Sussex CAMRA Spring Equinox Beer Festival

2nd CAMRA Spring Equinox Festival

Horsham Drill Hall, March 28-29 2015

Following the highly successful event last March, we would love to see you at the second CAMRA North Sussex Equinox Beer & Cider Festival. The venue is the Drill Hall, Denne Road, Horsham town centre, RH12 1JF, which is about 15 to 20 minutes walk from the station.

The date has been moved back a week, due to hall availability, and also helpfully avoids clashing with the Sussex CAMRA Beer Festival in Brighton.

The beer list will have over 50 beers, with a healthy mix of winter and spring ales available. All 6 of our excellent branch brewers will be featured, plus other local favourites and some gems from further afield. There will also be a great selection of local cider and perry.

The acoustic music scene in Horsham is particularly strong, and was a real feature of the first event. We will again be providing an excellent line up for the Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon sessions.

Session are Sat 12-4, and 6-10, then Sun 12-4. Tickets £6 Sat, £4 Sun, include a souvenir glass, plus a free pint for card-carrying CAMRA members. Hot and cold baguettes and snacks will be available at all sessions.

A £1 donation will be made by the Branch to a local charity for any returned souvenir glasses, along with the value of any donated surplus tokens.

Tickets are on sale in Horsham from Beer Essentials, the Malt Shovel and Kings Brewhouse. Postal applications (cheques payable to CAMRA North Sussex) to The Treasurer, 19 Felbridge Avenue, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 7BD.
