GLASTONWICK 2004

THE 9th ANNUAL BEER, MUSIC, POETRY, AND MORE BEER FESTIVAL

FRIDAY 28th - SUNDAY 30th MAY 2004

The Fly-In Bar and Restaurant,
Shoreham Airport,
Shoreham,
West Sussex
BN43 5FF

Glastonwick lives on!

For the 9th consecutive year, and the second year in the unique surroundings of the Fly-In Bar & Restaurant at Shoreham Airport, this popular festival will take place in late May. Again organised by the founders of Glastonwick, namely local poet and musician Attila the Stockbroker and cask beer advocate Alex Hall, we bring you a weekend of enormous quantities of delicious real ale (including many new brews as usual), cider, perry, and quality entertainment. After last year's 'Glastonwake' event, we've reverted to calling the festival by its original name (despite now holding it at the Airport).

Frequent trains run to Shoreham from Brighton, Worthing (both only 10 minutes away by train) and other stations along the West Coastway Line. There will be a special shuttle bus linking the festival with Shoreham High Street and Railway Station, Southwick Square and Manor Hall Road. The timetable is linked from further down this page. So, no-one needs to drive - or even fly!

OPENING TIMES:

Friday 28th May: 7pm to 11pm
Saturday 29th May: 12 noon to 11pm (entertainment from 7pm)
Sunday 30th May: 12 noon to late afternoon - or whenever the beer runs out (no entertainment Sunday).
