What: Eastbourne Beer Festival
Where: Eastbourne, South East England, UK
When: 9-11 October

One of the biggest of its kind in the South East, Eastbourne Beer Festival returns this October.

Held at Eastbourne’s Winter Garden, Eastbourne Beer Festival promises a three day celebration of the best real ales from around the world, top bottled beers, fine wines, ciders and perries.

A firm favourite in Eastbourne’s events calendar where visitors can try out Beachy Head beers, Brahma Crop from Brazil and Mac’s Gold all the way from Down Under.

Last year’s event saw a sell-out attracting more than 3,500 visitors across the three days, Eastbourne Beer Festival, known to serve more than 11,500 pints during previous years, is looking to continue its success this October.

Festival goers can look forward to more than 100 real ales with the chance to sample the likes of a Fruit Bat, Kamikaze and Ginger Tom. Good old pub grub will be on the menu throughout the event and the festival opens each evening, with a special afternoon family session on the Saturday rounding up in a huge pub quiz.

Thursday evening will see the return of the popular jazz night session with local musicians turning up to entertain crowds on the Beer Festival stage plus the Oompah band will be back with more foot stomping beer kellar fun.

Eastbourne Beer Festival is organised by Eastbourne Borough Council and Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA). To book tickets visit or telephone 01323 412000, or for further information visit
