Train Times & Entry

A ticket for travel or a platform ticket (£2 at Winchcombe, £1 at Toddington) on the day is required for entry to the event. You will then need to buy a standard souvenir glass for an additional £2. If you return your glass a refund of £1 will be given. You will also need to purchase a Beer Token Card(s) for the value of £10. (No cash sales at the bar). Hence a complete normal bar package costs £12. Any unused tokens can be exchanged back for cash, or donated to charity. You only need to buy a bar package once, which you can use at either bar. Extra token cards can be purchased as required.

An enhanced timetable will be in operation on both Friday and Saturday, including a shuttle DMU between Winchcombe and Toddington stations. The normal timetable will be in operation on Sunday. Further details of train times will be available nearer the time of the event.
