One of the biggest beer & cider festivals in Kent and Sussex will be returning to the Spa Valley Railway in Tunbridge Wells for the 9th year on Friday 18th, Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th October 2019.

This popular Real Ale and Cider event is only made possible through the support of West Kent CAMRA.

Live bands will entertain visitors over the weekend as they enjoy some of the 160 Real Ales, 25 Green Hop Beers and craft beers on offer.  The Craft Beer Bar will feature UK Keg & European Beers.  There are also over 30 different ciders available.

The main festival takes place in the Victorian Engine Shed at Tunbridge Wells West where everyone can enjoy a pint or two throughout the day.

Why not also decide to take a heritage train journey between Tunbridge Wells West and Eridge?  The festival continues on the trains with another chance to enjoy some wonderful local brews at Groombridge and Eridge stations along the line.  Trains will operate every 50 minutes. The railway’s Commercial Manager Jonnie Pay said “This popular annual festival is the most important annual fundraising event we hold at the railway and its success is vital to the continued running of the Spa Valley Railway, which is also the town’s main tourist attraction.
