Newbury Real Ale Festival 2016
Festival Chania Flower Flower

Newbury Real Ale Festival 2016 will be held on September 10th this summer, at Northcroft Fields as usual. Planning is already underway and we've got our heldline musical act booked (more details soon) and a more diverse music lineup than in previous years. The site will be bigger, there'll be more Ale and Cider, and we have increased the maximum capacity as well. We're always looking for sponsors, so please get in touch if you'd to get involved. We'll be releasing more information soon but the pre-sale tickets are now available from the link above.


Every year we pick an area of the country to source the majority of our ales from and this year we've decided to pick 'National Parks'. This should lead to an interesting and wide variety of Ales from across the country!

Open Mic Competition
Music is a big part of our festival and once again we will provide a fantastic stage for bands to play on. We always aim to have a diverse range of musical styles on view and welcome bands from near and far.

We are increadibly grateful to over 175 sponsors that have supported us over since we began in 2003. With around 5000 people expected to attend the event it is a great opportunity to get your company seen. We offer a number of packages, all of which include complimentary tickets, making it an ideal opportunity to meet potential clients.

Sponsorship Packages

Naomi House
The festival is again raising money for Naomi House, the local children's charity that is doing amazing work under a restrictive budget. We are in debt to the local companies that continue to sponsor the event and raise money for such a worthy cause. Last year we were able to present a cheque for over £10,000!
