The Clacton-on-Sea Real Ale and Cider Festival will be taking place at St James' Hall and offer over 65 real ales, ciders, perries, wines and international beers to visitors. The festival is very near to the seafront and will be taking place at the same time as the famous Clacton Air Show, so why not combine both visits in one? There is plenty of holiday camping in the area and the festival is child friendly.
Chappel Beer Festival
5-9 September 2017
Open from 11 am -11pm, opens at 5pm on Tuesday
The Chappel Beer Festival is held in the East Anglian Railway Museum. Guests can enjoy a beer while sitting in a train carriage. For safety reasons, the museum does not perform any train movements while the festival is open, but the trains are accessible to be viewed and sat upon. The festival spills out onto a field owned by the museum which is also used for public camping. Children are encouraged over the weekend, when family-friendly events such as Morris dancing, Ferret racing and a local formation wheelbarrow pushing team will be taking place.
