The Ashcroft Winter Ale Festival

It’s back! Dry January is over and the January blues are a distant memory! Celebrate by coming along to the Ashcroft Winter Ale Festival 2019 and sample a fantastic range of local ales and ciders from Bowman Ales, the Way Out Back Brewing Company, Wild Weather Ales, Red Cat Brewing and Elusive Brewing; alongside some very special brews from other local craft breweries.

Throughout the afternoon and evening there will be a fantastic selection of music from some of the best bands on the south coast including FB Pocket Orchestra, Brigands Brew, Stompin’ Dave, the Portsmouth Shantymen and Bad Cat.

We are delighted to announce that Pie & Vinyl, Southsea's legendary record shop and pie emporium, will be providing a delicious range of hot pies for customers who have bought the ticket with food. Home made on Portsea Island, their pies are created from ethically-sourced, high-quality local ingredients and they cater for vegetarians, vegans and people who cannot tolerate gluten too. 

Upon entry you will be able to purchase a book of ten drinks tokens. 18+. Places are limited, and advance booking is advised. Booking for food is now closed, however there are still tickets for entry available.
