Beer Festival Starts Today!

Nick Shaw - 24th May 2013

Beer Festival Starts Today!

The Woking Football Club Beer Festival kicks off today at 6pm!

Tickets are available on the gate so why not come down this evening and try a selection of the 20+ real ales and ciders that are on offer, whilst listening to the excellent singer songwriter Hannah Dorman.

The Festival continues tomorrow with gates opening at 1pm, and the Champions League Final will be shown live on the big screen.

All tickets cost £5, this includes the first pint free for Woking Football Club Season Ticket Holders, Shareholders and Cards Trust Members (on production of proof and one free pint only per person).

Tickets can be purchased on the day at the gate.

Over 20 real ales and ciders will be available, as will hot food. All beers and ciders will be priced at £3 a pint.


We are delighted to welcome back by popular demand singer songwriter Hannah Dorman on the Friday, who delivered a superb set at last year's festival.

"Chatty, relaxed and exciting, this upcoming British Country Rock singer songwriter brings class and elegance to the stage with her hard rocking country music. Her acoustic roots can be heard floating through, drawing you in with catchy rhythms and melodies, driven by a rocking rhythm section. Think KT Tunstall, long legs, wild hair and a dusting of country.

Her inspiration and eclectic influences are not obvious but there is an underlying resonance in her music – as well as KT Tunstall, Anastasia, Shania Twain, Pretty Reckless and Kelly Clarkson all have their place. Lyrically fresh, honest and relevant, Hannah Dorman uncompromisingly delivers her songs with vocals that drift between breathy emotion and raw vocal power."

On the Saturday we will be showing the highly anticipated all-German Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, and what better way to experience it than by trying a range of real ales and ciders whilst viewing the match on the big screen in the Cardinals' Bar!


Tickets are available, to over 18s only, on the gate. All tickets cost £5, this includes the first pint free for Woking Football Club Season Ticket Holders, Shareholders and Cards Trust Members (on production of proof and one free pint only per person).
