Thursday 19th—Saturday 21st January 2017

Welcome, to the 21st Cambridge Winter Ale Festival, Cambridge & District CAMRA's winter Beer Festival.

We are very proud of our festival, we put a lot of time and effort into making it the best we can, we hope that you visit us and have an enjoyable time.

About our Festival

The Cambridge Winter Ale Festival had a brief outing in 1986, before starting its current run in 1997.

The Winter Ale Festival is generally held in late January at the University Social Club, Mill Lane, Cambridge, we are pleased to be working with the excellent team at the USC (University Social Club) to bring you the Cambridge Winter Ale Festival.

That is the festival over for this year, a big thank you for coming along and making it a great success. We hope that you enjoyed yourself and that you found something to your liking.

Thanks go to our loyal poor unpaid hard working volunteers without whom, there wouldn't have been a festival and for helping make the 20th Cambridge Winter Ale Festival such a success.
We hope to see both customers and volunteers, again at the Cambridge & District CAMRA 44th Cambridge Beer Festival from Monday the 22 to Saturday the 27 May 2017 on Jesus Green, Cambridge.

Card payments

We are sorry, but we are unable to accept payment at the entrance or at the bars by debit/credit cards, sorry, but it is cash only. There is a have a pass-out scheme, should you need to visit a cash machine, our volunteers will be able to help locate one if needed.

Age Verification

Under 18s are allowed on site, but must be with a responsible adult - a 17 year old with an 18 or 19 year old friend is not sufficient. As at any licensed premises, it is illegal to buy alcohol if you are under 18, or to buy alcohol for anyone under 18.

At the bars, the festival supports and operates the Challenge21 scheme; if you are lucky enough to look young, then please don't be offended if and when you are asked for ID to check you are over 18. The only acceptable ID is a government issued photo ID (photo driving licence or passport) or a card showing the PASS Scheme hologram. We thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
