Entry to the festival in the daytime (up until 4pm) is FREE OF CHARGE.

Entry after 4pm (on both Friday and Saturday nights) will be £2 (£1.50 for CAMRA members).


A token system will be in use to purchase drinks. Tokens cost 50p each. Spend 2 tokens for a third pint, spend 3 tokens for a half pint [*]. This is equvalent to £3 a pint.
Tokens will only be valid on the day of purchase.

All drinks will be available in both ⅓ and ½ pint measures to give you chance to sample a wide variety of beverages.

[*] except for Downfall which is 9% and Castle Rock Guns of Navarone at 10.3%.
These two beers cost 3 tokens for a third pint and 4 tokens for a half pint and are clearly marked in the programme.


A deposit of £4 is required per glass, returned when you bring the glass back (or you can keep the glass as a souvenir!)

2017 is a special year as we commemorate 110 years of the John Godber Centre and 20 years since the first Hucknall Beer Festival. There will be a limited amount of souvenir glasses to celebrate this.
