What is it?

Beer Bop A Lula Festival, as the name suggests, is a three day festival celebration of BEER and BOPPING set in the beautiful grounds of Priory Park, in the town of Reigate, Surrey. A 'grown up" festival where the music is accompanied by a choice of over 100 real ales, ciders and craft lagers, a fantastic array of food, children's entertainment and much much more.... For three days in July the beautiful Priory Park will be buzzing with big music, great performers, fantastic street food and a little bit of that "Ibiza" feeling at the RETOX Cocktail Bar.

The festival pops up from nowhere to transform the park, giving locals and visitors a chance to mingle and enjoy the show. Everyone is welcome to the party!

This is definitely one weekend you will not want to miss so please buy your tickets in advance as they might sell out before the event!

Where is it?

The festival is held in Priory Park situated in the heart of the town of Reigate and only a 10 minute walk from Reigate Railway Station. It's easily accessible from London with journey times of only 50 minutes from London Victoria via Redhill and by car Reigate is situated just off junction 8 on the M25.

Why not find a local place to stay and join us for the whole weekend?

Please bear in mind that THERE IS NO PARKING at the festival so we recommend that you use public transport or take a taxi. Although there is no camping at the festival there is a good selection of quality accommodation in the surrounding area.

You must be wearing your wristband at all times whilst you are in the festival site. Your wristband is either valid for the whole weekend (Weekend and VIP Sponsors ticket holders) or for the day (Day ticket holders). If you have a Weekend/VIP Sponsor wristband this should not be removed as you will need it to gain re-entry.

Broken, damaged or wristbands that appear to have been in any way tampered with will be refused re-entry.

Re-admittance

You may leave and return to the Festival with your wristband, however each time you leave you will have to undergo a security check on re-admittance to the festival site. Even with a wristband, there is no entry or re-admittance after 9pm.

Purchasing Food and Drink at The Festival

The festival operates a festival currency called the LULA. £1 = 1 Lula. On entry to the site you should proceed to the Beero de Change where you can purchase your LULAS by Card, Apple Pay, Contactless or Cash. We much prefer Card, Apple Pay and Contactless transactions as this is more secure for you and the festival.

The bars and food traders on site will only accept LULAS, so it is important that you obtain your festival currency before attempting to buy any food or drink.

VERY IMPORTANT! Once purchased, LULAS CANNOT be refunded or changed back for pounds, so please make sure you only purchase the amount you require. Thank you.

ID Checks

We operate a “zero tolerance” policy towards drugs and underage drinking at Beer Bop A Lula Festival and operate a strict Challenge 25 Policy You will need to be ID checked by one of our security team (at the entrance) in order to be served alcohol if you are lucky enough to look under 25. It takes only thirty seconds to get ID checked, so please, if you are in any doubt, get checked, and then you won’t be turned away from the bars.

Security & Safety

For your safety we have a dedicated team of SIA registered security staff who will be on site to help and assist you throughout the event. Our security teams' primary responsibility is the wellbeing of everybody so please follow any safety instructions given.

Beer Bop A Lula Festival is a family friendly environment and we expect appropriate behaviour from everybody who attends.
