Fourteenth Colchester Winter Ale Festival

When? Wednesday 25th January 2023 to Saturday 28th January 2023. 12 noon until 10:30pm each day.

Where? Colchester Arts Centre

Colchester Arts Centre is based in a converted church close to the centre of Colchester, off Head Street. There’s been a church on the site since 1206, the current building dating from 1872. It became the Arts Centre in 1980 and has hosted the Colchester Summer and Winter festivals since 1988. Refurbished during the pandemic, come for the beer, stay to look at the new toilets!

Why? Because beer! 80+ beers will be available, both local and from across the country, alongside a selection of real cider, Belgian beers, local Essex wines and soft drinks.

As with previous Colchester festivals no tickets are required. Just turn up.

Entry is free until 3pm each day, £3 after 3pm for non CAMRA members.
