Beer, BBQ, Dancing and Steam and this is Dave's actual Birthday

Enjoy Music, Dancing and Great British Beer at the annual CAMRA Real Ale & Cider Festival

Celebrate the arrival of summer with a visit to the Kent & East Sussex Railway in Tenterden on 13 and 14 June 2014 for the annual CAMRA Real Ale & Cider Festival.

This popular social event, which appeals to all ages, is organised by the Ashford, Folkestone and Romney Marsh Branch of CAMRA, The Campaign for Real Ale.

The evening event on the Friday takes place between 6pm and 10.30pm but the festival will get into full swing from midday on Saturday 14 June when the first of four bands take to the stage, which is built across a siding.

Visitors can try a diverse range of around 50 of the finest Ales, Ciders and Perry in the beer tent while enjoying an eclectic mix of live music. This will all be complemented with a delicious selection of food from a BBQ or the station's licenced refreshment room.

The bands performing will include 'Atlantic Currants' at 12 noon and 'Porch Swing Blues' at 2.30pm.

Morris dancers will also be performing during the festival at around 5.30pm. A 20% discount will apply to fares for CAMRA members on production of a valid membership card.
