Southampton Beer
Festival 2005

Another great success!

This year's festival was held from 16th to 18th June 2005. The festival was a great success - and once again we had to stop advance ticket sales before we opened. We hope that this will continue to encourage people to buy tickets in advance (they normally go on sale approximately 8 weeks before the festival). Next Year's festival is penciled in for 1st to 3rd June 2006
