Campaigning for real ale, pubs & drinkers' rights since 1971.
The 2021 festival is booked for Tuesday November 30th to Saturday December 4th 2021. Subject to a lot of things outside our control. This information will be updated on a regular basis. As of September 13th, we are hoping to run a normal festival at the Round Chapel this year. The festival will run from Tuesday November 30th to Saturday December 4th. Opening hours will be Noon to 10-30pm [11pm Fri/Sat]. The entrance fee will be £3 for members and £5 for non-members. An £8 season ticket will be available for members only. We should have around 175 cask & keykeg beers, though not all will be on at once. Payment at the bar will be by contactless card. Beer cards will be available for cash only for those who do not have contactless cards. As usual we will be supporting the Speaker of Hackney’s charities, which this year are St Joseph’s Hospice and the Hackney Empire. We are aware that restrictions may change our plans. If we are required to do a table service festival, then we do have a separate plan. This festival would then be advanced ticket only. Full details would appear here if needed. If you have any questions, please email them using the branch email.
