North Sussex CAMRA Spring Equinox Beer Festival 2016

3rd CAMRA Spring Equinox Festival
Horsham Drill Hall, March 5th-6th 2016
Following the popular and successful event last March, once again we would love to see you at the third 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 railway station, maybe less from the bus station.
The date is slightly earlier than in 2015, partly due to Easter being the last weekend in March, but also due to hall availability. This will hopefully avoid clashing with any other events taking place in the area, CAMRA or otherwise!
Along with the earlier date, the other main change for 2016 is that admission to the Sunday drink-up session from 12-4 will be FREE. Tickets for the two Saturday sessions 12-4 and 6-10 are £6 each, which will 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.
The beer list will have over 40 beers, with a balanced mix of winter and spring ales available. All of our excellent branch brewers will be featured, plus other local favourites and some gems from further afield. Those who like cider and perry are not forgotten, with a selection of both available.
The acoustic music scene in Horsham is particularly strong, and has been a real feature of both the previous events. We will again be providing an excellent line up for the Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon 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.
Saturday tickets go on sale at the start of December from Beer Essentials, the Malt Shovel and Kings Brewhouse, all in Horsham. Postal applications (cheques payable to CAMRA North Sussex) to The Treasurer, 19 Felbridge Avenue, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 7BD.
