The festival is held on Worcester Racecourse, in the centre of the City. It is a short walk from the railway station (Worcester Foregate Street) and the bus station.
There is no car parking on site, but public car parks can be found next to the race course.
More info here.
If you've bought in advance, bring your ticket with you to the racecourse, either printed out or on your phone. We'll scan it in and give you your first drinks strike card, a glass and a programme. Then you're ready to hit the bar!
If you are buying your ticket at the door, have your £10 (Thursday/Saturday) or £20 (Friday) ready.
We sell a wide range of Beer, Cider and Perry at the bar, along with grape wines, fruit wines and Prosecco. Take you glass, make your choice. Then present your strike card. The bar staff will cross off the tokens to the value of your purchase. Each token is worth 20p and all the drinks are priced in multiples of 20p.
There is also a craft World Beer bar and speciality gin bar at this year's festival. These take cash/credit cards, not the strike card tokens.
Please note, the festival is licensed premises and you are not allowed to bring your own alcoholic drinks onto the site.
We have a number of food outlets on site. They all take cash - you can't use your strike cards to buy food.
You can bring your own picnic if you prefer, but you cannot bring your own alcoholic drinks on site.
We have a dedicate music tent where a strong line up of bands will be performing.
Dogs are allowed, but they must be kept on a lead and under control at all times. Any mess needs to be cleared up immediately.
Children are allowed into the festival. They don't have to pay. They must be accompanied by an adult at all times. You must remember it's a beer festival and in a field, so there are lots of hazards and dangers around. Children must not be allowed to wander off on their own.
If you're a CAMRA member, or join at the festival, take your membership card to the "extra tokens" desk and you'll be given a "half pint token" to spend at the bar.
Young looking over 18's will be asked to provide proof of age at the entrance. You'll get a wrist band to show a check's been done, but the bar staff may ask you to re-show your ID because they are responsible at the end of the day if they serve someone under age.
