Ropetackle Beer Festival 2015 (Fri)

Attila The Stockbroker & The Wellington Brewhouse Proudly Present: The 6th Annual Ropetackle Beer Festival


Friday 6th – Saturday 7th February 2015

The first five have been great – so we’re not stopping! Organised and compered as ever by Southwick poet/musician Attila The Stockbroker, with beers sourced by Rob Jones, now owner of the Duke Of Wellington in Shoreham (with the above-named new brewery coming soon…)

The festival will feature more than 25 beers from small independent breweries, plus ciders and perries, lovely food served throughout by the Ropetackle Café, and wonderful live music during the evenings. There will also be a relaxing music-free Saturday afternoon. There will be plenty of space to sit and enjoy the beer… and space to have a dance as well if you feel like it!



Session Time: 6pm – 11.30pm £7 TICKETS

Full selection of beers, ciders and perries, plus delicious hot food from the Ropetackle Café. Live music from Brighton based folk/indie outfit The Galleons, local folk heroes Laura Ward & The Risen Road plus Welsh singer songwriter Efa Supertramp.



Session Time: 12noon – 5.15pm £4 TICKETS

Beer and conversation (while some of us watch the Albion play Nottingham Forest) with snacks available from Ropetackle Café.

Session Time: 6pm – 11.30pm £7 TICKETS

Full selection of beers, ciders and perries, plus delicious hot food from the Ropetackle Café. Live music from seminal Harlow punk cult heroes Newtown Neurotics plus Sussex based folk-punk outfit Bandana Collective.

Book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment, the Friday and Saturday evening sessions are extremely popular and usually sell out!
