CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale) was formed 40 years ago and this is the 21st Sussex Beer and Cider

For the 3rd year running, the food will be provided by the local caterers Arkwrights, who offer a variety of tasty food, including vegan & vegetarian options. Smart T’s also will be back with some cool new T-shirts, and local painter Richard Stone has again designed the logo. On Saturday evening, the Soul & Dance band Rhythm Method will be playing live in the Great Hall. All bars will operate a token system. Tokens refunds can be given only for whole £s and before time is called at the bar. Surplus tokens as well as other donations go to this year’s festival charity, St. Dunstan’s, who provide support for visually impaired ex-Service men and women.

For the second time, we are proud to host the launch of the Brighton Food and Drink Festival just outside the Sussex Bar on Thursday afternoon.
