Beer and Cider Festival, 24, 25, 26 June

The Railway’s Beer and Cider Festival is back!

Whether you relax aboard one of our historic carriages or on the platform at Sheringham Station there’ll be scores of local ales and ciders, including many from local suppliers alongside those from breweries further afield. A selection of wines, spirits and soft drinks will also be available.

Enjoy DJ sets throughout the day courtesy of returning favourite Drivetime Music. There’ll be live music on Friday evening as the Sheringham Shantymen join us, and from The Hillbilly Goats Gruff!

Refreshments will be available from the Railway’s buffet or Lilwall’s Hog roast.

Please note that this year’s event will be run via a token based system not a cash bar; holders of advance tickets will receive a souvenir glass, festival programme and beer list plus the first £10 worth of tokens with their tickets. Additional tokens will be also available to purchase on the day.


The Festival itself will be open from 11am – 10pm on Friday & Saturday, and open from 11am until 5pm on Sunday. Last orders will be at 9.45pm and 4.45pm respectively.

Two steam engines and a heritage diesel locomotive will be in action operating a frequent train service between Sheringham, Weybourne and Holt as  shown below – it is possible to travel on the trains without visiting the Beer Festival

  • Commemorative Pint Glass
