Chappel Winter Beer Festival 28th & 29th February 2020 | Chappel & Wakes Colne

The Chappel Winter Beer Festival returns on Fri 28th and Sat 29th February 2020, jointly organised with the Campaign for Real Ale.

Unlike during the Summer Beer Festival, the museum is fully open during the Winter Beer Festival so you can explore the museum, peek ‘behind the scenes’ into the Restoration Shed, admire the locomotives, coaches and wagons and take in the model railway layouts.

The Festival takes up its two-day residence in on our splendid, heated Victorian Goods Shed.
