The 30th Chappel beer Festival is all getting ready. Things are gradually being confirmed.|
Few changes to camping this year - it will be Free camping on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday ONLY. Just turn up and pitch up on these days.
However to prevent over-crowding of the campsite on Friday & Saturday night, there is a £10 charge if you by your ticket in advance. This advance camping ticket can be refunded at the festival admission on the day for a £10 beer token at admission. IF and only IF there is space on these two nights, you may take a chance and turn up and pay £10 on the gate, but no free beer tokens.
The only day you need to buy a ticket in advance to gain admission to the beer festival is Friday eve. If you arrive before 5.30pm, then just pay on the door, and stay until the end of the evening. Arrive after 5.30pm, then you must have a pre-bought ticket.
Abellio Great Anglia have now released their revised train timetable for the beer festival, including extra stops of main line trains at Marks Tey. details can be found at:
