Frocester Beer Festival... Fun, Beer, Friends!
2019 FBF-branded Beer Tankards Now On Sale!
Once again, we are delighted to be offering our branded Pint Tankards this year, for all those many visitors who like to have a permanent memento of the festival.
This year's FBF Tankards are made of high quality polycarbonate (...with regret, we aren't allowed to offer glass tankards anymore, due to restrictions being imposed by our local Licensing Authority) and, as usual, you will be able to collect your Tankard when you arrive at the festival.
To reflect this change from glass to polycarbonate, our FBF-branded 2019 Tankards are this year priced at only £3.50 each and, once again, all profits from Tankard sales will be donated to a local charity.

We would like to point out that FBF ticket prices have not increased since Frocester Cricket Club took over the running of the festival from the Lions in 2014. Last year, the festival was required to become VAT registered and we now have to pay VAT on all ticket sales. We took the decision last year to absorb the costs of these VAT charges and not pass them on to our festival patrons - with an inevitable impact on the amount of money we were able to donate to charity in 2018. This year, the Early Bird prices reflect the VAT increase only. Once the Early Bird period has finished, we will unfortunately be making a real ticket price increase, to reflect the ever-increasing costs of providing the festival's infrastructure that have occured over the last 5 years. We hope this will mean that the festival will be able to make a substantial donation to charitable causes this year.
Admission tickets are provided in the form of printed wristbands, which must be worn at all times when on the festival site. Delivery cut-off date: 31st July. After this date, tickets/wristbands may only be collected from the gate. To collect pre-paid tickets/wristbands from the gate, you will need to bring your confirmation email with you.
Note: FBF is a family-friendly event, and Under 18s benefit from FREE Admission to the festival. However, proof of age must be shown on entry, all Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult, obviously no alcoholic beverage will be served to Under 18s, and all Under 18s must be clear of the festival site by 6.30pm each evening.
