Thank you to everyone who came to Rail Ale 2016. It was a fantastic celebration of 15 years of the Festival and we hope you enjoyed the party as much as we did!

There are lots of people we must also thank, without whom there would be no Rail Ale. Firstly to our magnificent volunteers behind the bars, clearing rubbish, handing out programmes, checking tickets, serving food, driving the steam train, looking after our visitors and 1001 other tasks to enable the Festival to run smoothly. To our sponsors for their support and promotion of Rail Ale, all the breweries for supplying great beer and the stall holders who kept everyone fed and supplied with Rail Ale t-shirts and drinking horns! To our ticket outlets across the region for their help over several months promoting Rail Ale and encouraging everyone to join the party. To the local CAMRA branches, particularly Chesterfield, for their support. To Chesterfield Tourist Information Centre for their promotion of the Festival and to everyone else who 'spread the word'. Last but not least to the small band of merry men and women who spend 12 months of every year working to bring you Rail Ale.

Thank you everyone and see you next year at Rail Ale 2017!
