Campaign for Real Ale

Plymouth Beer and Cider Festival 2019

The Plymouth CAMRA Beer and Cider Festival 2019 – Sorry, It's All Over Until Next Time!

The annual branch beer and cider festival sees a new look and a new venue this year – Territorial Army Centre, The Hoe, Plymouth, Prospect Place, The Hoe, Plymouth PL1 3BQ (located just behind the Duke Of Cornwall Hotel, and at a slightly different time of the year.

We have up to 70 real ales, 20+ real cider and perry, a varied selection of wines and a good selection of locally-supplied hot and cold food, including curries, both meat and vegetarian options, pizzas and Devon Deli. We are open on Thursday 27th, Friday 28th and Saturday 29th June from 1200 until 2230 each day (Family-Friendly until 1900). The venue is fully accessible for disabled/wheelchair users.

Entry to the event will be via the TA Centre Main Gate on Prospect Place where you can collect your glass and beer tokens. All real ale will be located in the Main Hall. There is also plenty of outside areas to enjoy yourselves, including the Food Marquee! Entry to the festival is £10.00, which includes glass, beer list and £3.00 beer tokens (£6.00 beer tokens for CAMRA members and Armed Forces).


Please see Plymouth Beer and Cider Festival 2019 Set-Up Photos to see a selection of photographs whilst we are setting the festival up, and Plymouth Beer Festival - 27-29 June 2019 whilst we are open to public and whilst packing everything away again.

Hat Day

We want people to enjoy themselves responsibly, and why not join in our Special Promotion - Hat Day, during Saturday 29th. You can either buy a hat especially for the occasion, or why not make your own! There will be a number of great prizes awarded during the day, by two of our organising committee, whose decision will be final.


Volunteers to help us run this event are always made very welcome – we couldn't run it without them – so please email Alan Warden ku.gro.armac.htuomylp@pihsrebmem for further details if you would like to help out. Briefly, we would like help on Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th to help us set up; Thursday 27th, Friday 28th and Saturday 29th (whilst open!); and Sunday 30th June to pack everything away.
