It’s full steam ahead (pun intended) for this year’s Festival of Ale, South Oxfordshire CAMRA‘s liquid contribution to the annual Woodcote Rally. This year’s event will be held in the village on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July…
For those who haven’t been before, Woodcote is located 8 miles NW of Reading on the A4074 Reading to Oxford road. Parking is available at the site but drinkers should consider the bus option. Hourly service is provided by Thames Travel (route X40) between Reading, Wallingford and Oxford. Last buses from Woodcote War Memorial on the festival days are as follows:
- to Reading: Saturday, 22:00; Sunday, 22:30.
- to Wallingford and Oxford: Saturday, 23:30; Sunday, 20:30.
Discounted festival tickets may be purchased in advance through the website or just show up on the day and pay at the gate. The festival closes at 11 pm on Saturday, at 6 pm on Sunday.
