We are all looking forward to another fantastic festival in 2022!
We pride ourselves on having over the past 5 festivals a large selection of real ales & ciders. We will be championing them again this year along with new additions as micro breweries are starting every year!
Don’t forget - CAMRA members get a complimentary free drink on producing membership when you buy your entry ticket!
get your tickets early and be sure to get the limited Neath Real Ale Festival 2022 celebration glass/tankard! Click on the link below.
The only rule we insist on is you do not take your ‘glass’ outside on the street. This is a basic health and safety rule for all outside venues. Just carry your glass safe home or to the next ‘Ale Trail’ venue.
Neath has many pubs that love to take part in the festival. The ‘Ale Trail’ will take you to the various venues where you collect stamps for your ‘Ale Trail’ card. Get 6 venue stamps and you will qualify for a free real ale / cider back at the Town Hall!
Saturday night sees Gareth Thomas back again this year with ‘Smooth Operator’ in Angel Square. The fantastic ’Afternoon in Paris’ are outside the Old Town Hall back by popular demand. Well Seasoned are also with us again raising money for the Welsh Air Ambulance.
