ALE lovers can once again raise a glass as a popular event is steaming back to a railway museum.

The popular Chappel Winter Beer Festival is back for 2023 with dates announced for March.

A spokesman said: “This year we are running on three days and will again have an all-ticket event.

“There will be two sessions per day, and as ever we don’t close between sessions, so if you arrive with an afternoon ticket you can stay as long as you wish.

“However, if you have an afternoon session ticket you must be in before 5.30pm and if you have an evening session ticket you cannot gain admission before 5.30pm."

The admission package is £17 which includes admission, a non-refundable souvenir beer glass, beer list and a £10 drink voucher.

There are discounted tickets for CAMRA/EARM members, Greater Anglia season ticket holders valid to Chappel, Bures or Sudbury, and residents in postcodes CO6 2DS, CO6 2DR and CO6 2DP.

The beer festival runs from Thursday, March 2, to Saturday, March 4.

Afternoon sessions are from 11am to 5.30pm, and evening sessions from 5.30pm to 11pm.
