Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival, Nottingham


Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival
Motorpoint Arena Nottingham
Wednesday 17 - Saturday 20 October 2018
Tickets: £10.80 - £21.60

Due to major redevelopments at Nottingham Castle, for the next three years the annual Robin Hood Beer & Cider Festival will be moving to the Motorpoint Arena in 2018, 2019 and 2020, with hopefully a return to Nottingham Castle in 2021 if this proves possible.

The festival will feature over 1000 real ales and over 200 ciders and perries plus well over a dozen brewery bars. This year there will be the introduction of the Key Keg bar with a range of just under 30 different beers on at a time from a range of around 100 different beers (all of which conform to CAMRAs definition of real ale). Of course, there will be the usual  substantial range of food vendors offering a wide variety of food styles plus an ever larger selection of entertainment in two separate locations.

The festival will not only utilise the large floor of the Motorpoint Arena itself but also substantial backstage areas, an outside space and also Bolero Square at the front of the building, giving plenty of room to bring you all of the usual popular attractions plus new additions.

Tickets for the 2018 festival will go on sale from Friday 1 June and will be available to purchsse from the Nottingham Tourism Centre.

Admission prices:

Wednesday evening - £10.80
Thursday - £16.20
Friday - £21.60
Saturday - £21.60
Saturday evening - £10.80

All tickets include a commemorative glass  and nine beer tokens.

CAMRA member?

On top of the nine beer tokens provided, CAMRA members are given a further five tokens (four tokens on Wed and Sat evenings when admission is discounted) on presentation of an up-to-date membership card.

Purchasing tickets on the day 

Due to the popularity of this event, it will reach capacity at certain points throughout the week. For the safety and welfare of attendees, it is asked that customers purchase tickets in advance wherever possible, especially for peak periods - Friday and Saturday afternoons and Friday evening,

However, it will be possible to purchase tickets from the Motorpoint Arena Box Office on the day although on purchase immediate admission will be required. But, there may be queues at times as advance ticket holders will be given priority.

Please note, no pass-outs are permitted, and tickets purchased on the day must be used immediately. It is not possible to queue up early to buy a ticket on the day and then leave and return later.
