twentieth annual CAMRA Bristol Beer Festival will run from Thursday 23rd
to Saturday 25th March 2017 at Brunelís Old Station, Temple Meads,
Bristol. There will be a carefully chosen selection of around 140
different real ales on sale over the course of the festival as well as a
good range of cider and perry. There will also be a variety of food
available at all sessions. The Thursday evening session proved very
popular at the 2016 Bristol Beer Festival and so for 2017 we are going to
open a bit earlier at 6:30pm, the same as for the Friday and Saturday
Sunday 5th February 2017 tickets will go on sale to CAMRA members
at the COMMERCIAL ROOMS in Corn Street, Bristol from 12 noon until
2pm. Please bring the correct cash to the ticket sales sessions as we will
not be able to accept cheques or credit cards. Tickets will only be sold
to card-carrying CAMRA members at this session. Anyone who signs up to
join CAMRA on Sunday 5th February will also be able to purchase
festival tickets. The purchasing limits that apply for each valid CAMRA
membership card presented are as follows:
the Friday lunchtime, Friday evening and Saturday lunchtime sessions a
maximum of any four tickets in total may be purchased (for example you
could purchase 4 tickets for Friday lunchtime OR 2 Tickets for Friday

number of tickets that may be purchased for the Thursday evening and
Saturday evening sessions.
