Tickets are on sale for the Great Yarmouth Beer and Cider Festival and for a short period Mercury readers can get a discount on advance ticket orders.

Organised by the Town Centre Partnership and Day One Training, the annual event, now in its 6th year, will be hosted at St George’s Theatre over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend from May 23 to 26.

More than 40 different ales from a wide selection of breweries will be available over the weekend event plus a large selection of the increasingly popular UK produced ciders.

The festival will be open for a number of lunch and evening sessions starting with the opening on Thursday, May 23 at 6pm; lunchtime (11am to 3pm) and evening (5pm to 11pm) sessions on both Friday and Saturday, May 24 and 25 and finishing with a lunchtime session from noon to 3pm on Sunday, May 26.

As in previous years, live music will play an important part of the festival, with the new stage at St George’s providing the perfect back drop.

Advance tickets for all sessions are now available through the St Georges Theatre booking office.

And Great Yarmouth Mercury readers can get 25pc off advance tickets for the festival by entering “Mercury25” when booking on line at or by quoting the same code over the phone or in person to the box office on 01493 331484.
