The West Dorset Branch of the Campaign for Real Ale

Weymouth Octoberfest

Weymouth’s ever popular Octoberfest is set to make its annual return on Friday October 7th and Saturday the 8th in the Ocean Room, Weymouth Pavilion with its fine seaside views. This extremely popular event now is now in its 11th year at the Pavilion is organised by West Dorset Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA) and will this year feature over 60 real ales, ciders and perries from Dorset. We think this will be the largest selection of Dorset beers ever seen in one place. 

Tickets go on sale from August 1st, are priced at £11 per session and include a commemorative glass, programme and two halves of beer or cider. (CAMRA members receive an extra pint at the membership stand).

Customers are urged to get their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are also available from the following outlets:

Weymouthpavilion.com or by phoning 01305 783225. Please note the Pavilion charges a £1.50 booking fee per ticket.

Alternatively, you can buy tickets in person in Weymouth from The Globe and The Doghouse pubs as well as Chalbury Food and Wine or direct from the Pavilion box office. On Portland the Royal Portland Arms and in Dorchester The Convivial Rabbit are also stocking our tickets.
