Tickets for Rail Ale 2018 are now on sale - so why not buy the beer lover in your life a ticket for the most atmospheric beer festival of the year.  A great stocking filler and something to look forward to in the cold dark months of winter!

Three days of fantastic entertainment are lined up for 17th, 18th and 19th May 2018.  The judging of the coveted Beer of the Festival will take place on 17th May along with opportunities to ‘Meet the Brewer’.  On 18th and 19th May between 12noon and 5pm the popular Rail Ale train will be running for visitors. 

To quench the thirst there will be over 350 real ales from around the country including many brewed locally in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, a great range of ciders and craft beers and the return of the incredibly popular Prosecco bar. 

For music lovers there will be fantastic live music in the marquee and on the main stage from jazz and brass through acoustic, funk and soul to rock and roll. 

The Food Court will be on hand to provide visitors with a tasty range of food to suit every appetite from pork pies to pancakes and hog roast to pizza; not forgetting the chocolate, the cheese and even coffee! 

Entry to the Festival also includes entry to the museum and the new exhibitions and interactive displays provided courtesy of the Heritage Lottery Fund project that was completed in September 2017.  The dedicated FREE bus service will also be running from Chesterfield railway station into the Festival on all three days. There really is something for everyone at Rail Ale!

The event starts at 12pm! Don't be late - you'll miss the free BBQ food and Koolaid cocktails for the first 100 through the door, but more importantly some of the bigger bands have other shows to play/ need to leave earlier, so you'll risk missing them too.
