GLASTONWICK 2019 is Adur’s 24th annual Beer, Music, Poetry and More Beer Festival. It will be taking place on Friday 31st May – Sunday 2nd June 2019 and once again will be held at the charming Church Farm, Coombes, West Sussex, BN15 0RS.
There will be an impressive 75+ cask-conditioned beers, cider, perry, and lovely food on offer across the three days, which will be accompanied by enjoyable entertainment from 20 bands, musicians and poets, all performing their own original material.
