More trains will call at popular Norfolk beer festival

Friday, 19 July 2019

More trains will call at Reedham this weekend to help people get to and from the popular Reedham Beer Festival by rail.

The festival is set to present over 60 Real Ales and Ciders, along with a wide range of locally produced food complimented by a comprehensive line up of live music.

The Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnership has worked with Greater Anglia and festival organisers, Humpty Dumpty Brewery to add additional stops on services running between Norwich and Lowestoft to the event which takes place just a few minutes walk from the village Railway Station.

The event runs at Reedham Village Hall from midday to 11pm on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July and from midday to 6pm on Sunday 21 July.

Throughout the event most rail services will run hourly from Lowestoft and Norwich.

There are currently no direct services between Great Yarmouth and Reedham via Berney Arms. Connections from Great Yarmouth are available by changing at Brundall or Norwich.

Greater Anglia also has Groupsave tickets available for festival goers, offering up to a third off tickets for groups of more than three people travelling at the same time and Wherry Lines Ranger tickets are also available offering the opportunity to explore the local rail routes further.

Alan Neville, Greater Anglia’s Customer and Community Engagement Manager, said; “Supporting local business and tourism is very important to us and we are therefore delighted to be able to boost our services both to and from Reedham Station helping to promote the Beer Festival this weekend.”

Martin Halliday for the Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnership said; “We are pleased to support the Reedham Beer Festival and grateful to Greater Anglia for adding additional stops on services running from both Lowestoft and Norwich.

“Travelling to the event by train is much quicker than by road and with the Wherry Lines passing through some spectacular scenery, there is even more reason to avoid taking the car.”
