Newbury Real Ale Festival 2018

The 2017 festival proved to be a majour success once again! With over 4500 people attending (who braved the odd shower or two), sampling over 300 Ales and Ciders and enjoying the varied musical lineup. We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along and to the many sponsors who made the event possible. We hope you all had a great day and we look forward to seeing you again next time.

The date for the next event is September 8th 2018. If you are interested in sponsoring the event, please drop an email to - we'd love to have you on board!

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 incredibly grateful to over 175 sponsors that have supported us over the years 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.
