What's on Offer
ACBF is well known for offering a wide variety of excellent food and drink, so we ask that you do not bring your own alcoholic drinks or picnics to the festival.
We operate a token system for the main bar - tokens can be purchased in advance online or on the day. Our food concessions and the Craftyard Gin bar take payments via card or cash.
As ever, we will have Pimm's on tap and ice-cold Prosecco by the bottle alongside a small selection of still wine.
Our beer offering is very varied, with premium quality cask ale, craft keg beer and a choice of British lagers. Over 100 different beers will be available.
30 of our cask beers will be sourced locally; from within 20 miles of the village. The remaining cask beers and the keg beers on the amazing beer wall are sourced from our Main Event Sponsor, Dayla Drinks in collaboration with our own in-house Institute of Brewing Accredited Beer Sommelier.
We offer approximately 30 ciders and perries from a wide range of independent producers from all over England and Wales. Traditional Scrumpy's sit alongside fruity, mainstream ciders - something for every taste.
Soft drinks, no/low alcohol beers and bottled water are available as well as naturally Vegan beer and cider. We usually have a small range of Gluten-free beers as well.
We attract a wide range of food concessions, so you can be sure to find something to keep you sustained during your time at ACBF. We aim to provide Vegan food alongside traditional festival grub, such as Pizza, Curries and a number of other "Streetfood" style offerings.
We've always tried to make ACBF a family event, so you can expect plenty of stuff to keep your bambinos occupied from face painting, poetry and storytelling to giant inflatables.
Venue and Opening Times
ACBF takes place in the grounds of Aston Clinton School in the heart of the village. Access is via Twitchell lane.
We would encourage you not to park in the streets surrounding the school during the festival. A limited amount of parking for Disabled badge holders is available on site.
As the festival takes place at a school, we are not able to allow you to bring your dogs to ACBF (excluding registered assistance dogs).
The festival site is in a residential area so we ask that everyone leaves the event quietly and shows respect for our neighbours.
Friday - 5 pm to 11 pm
Saturday - Noon to 11 pm
Sunday - Noon to 3 pm
Access for wheelchair users around the site is easy, with no steps and mainly flat tarmac or grass surfaces. Disabled toilets are provided on-site.
We will have our usual uniquely designed festival glasses on sale.
