Walpole Park, Mattock Lane, W5 5BG.
The Festival runs from 12-15 July 2017. We will open at noon and stop serving at 10.30pm (6pm Saturday)
The prices are £3 for CAMRA members, £5 for non members. In addition there is a £3 refundable deposit on the glass. There is now a combined Admissions & Glasses so you don't have to pay twice.
We are not ready to take volunteers at the moment. Please revisit in 2017. We normally take non members subject to valid ID.
Any general enquiries about the festival should be sent here.
We do not currently offer tickets in advance. Please just turn up at the door.
We operate cash bars. Payment by debit and credit card is only possible for admissions, books and clothing etc.
Sorry but we do not have the facilities to operate credit/debit card ‘tabs’ for drinks.
If you have change, please use it whenever you can.
We take £50 notes on the door and will change them at the CAMRA products stand but please do not use them at the bars.
Our staff have the same legal rights and obligations as pub licensees and can refuse admittance. For security reasons a bag check may be required. We also require proof of age for those under 25. Anyone who is behaving in a way which is likely to cause a danger to others will be removed from the site.
Children are allowed in free until 6pm. For safety reasons we request that all children leave the site by 8pm. Baby changing facilities are in the disabled toilet.
We do allow dogs but not in the marquees. If they become aggresive you will be asked to take them from the festival site.
This is prohibited by law anywhere inside the marquees. When smoking in the park please use the ashtrays provided.
We have to operate to a strict limit on numbers in the festival.
If we have had to introduce a ‘one out, one in’ routine and you have had to queue for any time, we hope that you will accordingly appreciate why that was.
Although they are unpaid volunteers, a number of our stewards are fully SIA trained and accredited so please take notice of any announcements or requests from our stewards. Their only aim is to keep you safe.
We attempt to provide sufficient seating but there will never be enough for everybody. If dry you may wish to sit on the grass, otherwise feel free to bring a blanket.
Please do offer seats to those less able to stand and please do not reserve seats for those who have not arrived.
Pubs are disappearing at an alarming rate. Whilst London has been lucky in recent years with the growth of small (and not so small) breweries, with over fifty now producing all types of beer, there are now fewer places to drink them in!
If you have an interest in real ale and the pubs that serve it, why not join CAMRA and be one of over 184,000 members.
CAMRA is a not-for-profit body that is run locally and nationally by elected, unpaid volunteers and is completely independent of any commercial interest.
While we need activists, our strength is also in our numbers and, if you drink real ale in a pub, that in itself is positive campaigning.
For more information please come and see us at the Membership Stand.
