Campaign for Real Ale Western Sussex Branch presents


32nd Yapton Beerex

17 May 2024 - 19 May 2024 @ Yapton & Ford Village Hall


This event has ended.

Event Details


The 32nd Yapton Beerex is returning to Yapton and Ford Village Hall, Main Road, Yapton on the 17th 18th and 19th May 2024.

If you haven’t been before this is a very unusual event in that the hall stands on Yapton Village Green which affords the opportunity for al fresco relaxation over a pint or two. The middle weekends in May have in recent years afforded some great weather, so fingers crossed.

In addition to 43 perfectly cooled real ales there will be a KeyKeg bar (this year serving all beers right from the start following feedback from last year), even more ciders and perries and new and exciting food catering. Cash and cards will be accepted for everything with tokens for sale to buy drinks.

The drinks will have been selected from both national and local sources by CAMRA volunteers who will be on hand to guide you through the various styles.

The new 500 Stagecoach bus service now operates regularly between Littlehampton and Chichester stopping right outside Yapton Village Hall and Barnham station on all 3 days of the festival. Compass route 66 also serves Bognor and local villages on Friday afternoon and Saturday daytime. This means that our vintage bus won’t be needed this year and has been gracefully retired.

Again, after considering feedback our Friday session now starts earlier at 3pm. Session times are below with ticket prices which remain unchanged from last year with the exception of Sunday which reverts to being FREE. You don’t need a ticket for Sunday but please bring ID if you are lucky enough to look under 25. Children and well-behaved dogs are welcome and free at all sessions.

Friday 17th May 3pm to 11pm - £8

Saturday 18th May 11am to 9pm - £8 all day; - £4 from 5pm

Sunday 19th May 12noon to 3pm - FREE.

Friday and all-day Saturday ticket holders will get a free half pint cask ale/cider voucher.

Card carrying CAMRA members additionally get a £2 voucher for the session they attend (NOT the free Sunday session). A souvenir programme is included. Glasses are again to borrow not to keep.

A link to the ticketing website can be found on QR code on our posters at various venues and I this publication. Any updates will be posted on * Western Sussex CAMRA and this site will also link to an interactive beer list in the fullness of time.
