The weekend of the 19th and 20th May sees the 10th Spring Ale & Steam weekend on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway. Over the last decade the events have grown ever more popular with an increased range of beer on offer and this year will be no exception!

In conjunction with the North Cotswold Branch of CAMRA up to 36 beers will be available from Winchcombe and Toddington stations, with a frequent train service between the two bars.

  • Up to 24 beers will be available at Winchcombe with local and national beers available *
  • Up to 12 beers will also be available at Toddington all with a Wessex theme *

A selection of ciders will be available at both stations

Hot and cold food, tea / coffee and soft drinks will also be available at both Winchcombe and Toddington

The bars will be open from 1030 until 1900 at Winchcombe and 1745 at Toddington on the Saturday and 1030 to 1600 (subject to beer availability*) on the Sunday.

If you are not travelling on the trains, but wish to sample the beer at either station, we ask you buy a platform ticket (Winchcombe £2, Toddington £1)

An enhanced ‘Red’ timetable will operate on the Saturday with :

  • An early train from Cheltenham Racecourse
  • Additional trains between Toddington and Winchcombe throughout the day
  •  Late trains from Toddington and Winchcombe to Cheltenham Racecourse

* - Please note we cannot guarantee a full beer range for the Sunday of the festival, although every effort will be made to ensure a range of beer will still be available on the day. Please be aware however that the bar may close early if the beer supply is exhausted.
