Getting there

Frequent trains run to Shoreham from Brighton, Worthing (both only 10 minutes away by train) and other stations along the West Coastway Line. From there, jump on our special shuttle bus linking the festival with Shoreham High Street and Railway Station (plus one return journey from Brighton).


Have we mentioned the beer? There will be about 65 cask-conditioned ales, all from small independent breweries - mostly unusual but with a few 'old favourites'. About 10 farmhouse ciders and perries, and plenty of food including vegetarian options.

There will be more information here when available.
