Dear CAMRA friends

Please tell your branch members about this year's Crawley Beer Festival in our exciting new venue with a discount for CAMRA members! Perks for volunteer staff are even better with free beer and food on offer! We aim to have tokens instead of cash. Most beers will be from local microbreweries and cider farms and will be available free to workers.

I have some exciting news! We are moving from Three Bridges FC to Crawley Civic Hall, The Boulevard, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 1UZ, next to the Town Hall and easily reached by train (Crawley station) and bus. We will have an outside marquee and hot food. We will not have music in the evening but hope that Brighton Road and their friends can play for us again on Saturday afternoon.

Gary Lucas is busy running events at his Kissingate Brewery so I will be joined this year by Phil Shoebridge, landlord at the Crown Inn, Turners Hill. Rest assured that we will have the excellent Kissingate beers on sale as well as all the eight local brewery beers and many favourites as well as ciders and perries.

We will again be advertising in Sussex Drinker and offering a discount on entry to CAMRA members. £2 off entry vouchers will also be available at the Crown, Turners Hill and Beer Essentials, Horsham. Both of these are worth stopping at to enjoy a pint or two!

The opening times will be:

Thu 04 June 17.00 – 20.00 (-ish for set up only)
Fri 05   June 17.00 – 23.00 (open to all)
Sat 06  June 11.00 – 17.00 and 17.00 – 23.00 (All one session as per last year but staff choose afternoon or eve)
Sun 07 June 11.00 – 15.00 (free entry)

Once again, we would be glad to welcome you and would very much appreciate any help and assistance whether it be setting up, serving at the bar or front desk or taking down, either from yourselves or friends. We would welcome any suggestions as to how we can improve on last year, especially with regard to staffing. In return for your valued help, we will offer free beer to drink (so long as you can stand up!) and take away with you and also free hot food to staff. We will have a staff room for breaks.

Please let us know if you may be able to kindly help again this year or know of anyone who might like to help and, if not, we hope to see you on the other side of the bar! This is going to be the best ever Crawley Beer & Cider festival!

Best regards

Nigel Bullen (North Sussex CAMRA member, mobile: 07791 872289, email: and Phil Shoebridge.
