For the 17th consecutive year, and our sixth at the fabulous rural location of Coombes, this popular festival will again bring sleepy Sussex to life in June 2012.

As usual the event is organised by the founders of Glastonwick, namely legendary local punk poet and musician Attila the Stockbroker and international cask beer advocate Alex Hall, with a little help from their friends.

As in previous years, we promise you a weekend of enormous quantities of delicious real ale (including many new brews as usual), farmhouse cider, perry, and top quality entertainment.

Frequent trains run to Shoreham from Brighton, Worthing (both only 10 minutes away by train) and other stations along the West Coastway Line. From there, jump on our special shuttle bus linking the festival with Shoreham Railway Station and The Duke of Wellington (plus one daily journey each way from Brighton – except Friday when the outward trip starts at Portslade to avoid rush hour traffic for timekeeping purposes).

Camping is offered on site for only £5 per night (Friday through Sunday this year). Note you MUST book in advance if you wish to camp on site.
