First weekend held in June 2009

..\..\My Pictures\SHEEP.bmp

 

 

The North Cotswold Branch of CAMRA in conjunction with the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway are holding their 21st Ale and Steam Weekend at Winchcombe and Toddington Stations from Friday 16th June until Sunday 18th June 2023

 

We will again be splitting the beer sales between Winchcombe and Toddington Stations.

 

On Friday 16th June, the bar on both stations will be open from 10:30 until 18:00.

On Saturday 17th June the bar will be open from 10:30 until 18:30 at Winchcombe, and 18:20 at Toddington.

On Sunday 18th June, both bars will be open from 11:00 until 16:00. Opening on Sunday will be subject to beer availability.

 

The total number of Beers will be 45, made up from 28 at Winchcombe and 17 at Toddington. 13 different Ciders/Perry will also be available, split between the two stations. Plus Hot & Cold Food with Soft Drinks

 

Train Times & Entry

 

A ticket for travel or a platform ticket costing 2, valid on the day, is required for entry to the event. You will then need to buy a standard souvenir glass for an additional 2. You will also need to purchase a Beer Token Card(s) for the value of 10. (No cash sales at the bar).

 

Hence a complete normal bar package costs 12.

 

You only need to buy a bar package once, which you can use at either bar. Extra token cards can be purchased as required. Unused tokens can either be donated to charity, or cashed in, during festival opening times only. Similarly, glasses can be returned; a refund of 1 will be given.

 

An enhanced timetable will be in operation on both Friday and Saturday, including a shuttle DMU between Winchcombe and Toddington stations. First train from Cheltenham at 10:00. See GWR site for train times from Broadway.

 

The normal timetable will be in operation on Sunday. See GWR site.

Limited Car Parking

 

Please note that parking at Winchcombe is very limited and it is more fun travelling there by train. (Ample parking available at Cheltenham Race Course and at Toddington Station)
