ARRIVING BY TRAIN

The hub of the festival is Dronfield railway station which will be served by all our festival bus services. A number of venues are walkable from the station and there are shops and cash machines close by.

Dronfield is between Sheffield and Chesterfield with trains running every hour throughout the day on the Leeds to Nottingham route, operated by Northern, with some additional services provided by East Midlands Trains when their Liverpool-Norwich trains call. Train times and fares for all trains are available from www.nationalrail.co.uk.

In the past Three Valleys Land has spread into Sheffield 17 with festival Buses serving Dore & Totley railway station, on the Sheffield-Manchester line, this is no longer the case, however there will be one feeder bus from/to this station picking up in the morning at 11:40 and dropping off back at the station in the evening at 21:37. If you are using this station at other times you will need to arrange a taxi, the nearest festival venue is the Miners Arms at Dronfield Woodhouse.

TAXI!

New for this year in Three Valleys Land will be a taxi service provided by Uber, download their app to your smartphone to see where their cars are and to request one. Payment is made by card through your account rather than paying the driver in cash. There is a special deal for new Uber users for Three Valleys Festival – enter our promotional code ‘3VALLEYS’ and you get your first ride (up to the value of £15) free.

Other taxi firms in the area include:

City Taxis 0114 2393939
Network Taxis 0114 2747474

SAFE & SENSIBLE

Please do stay safe – roads and railways can be dangerous places, drink sensibly and eat plenty to soak the booze up too. If the weather is warm do have the odd soft drink now and again to avoid dehydration too. There is no requirement to have a pint in every venue, it isn’t a challenge and if you’ve had a few don’t forget to use the venue’s facilities before getting the bus… (although remember the bus won’t wait).

We also ask you respect the area and local residents, please be quiet when outside venues and make use of litter bins to dispose of any rubbish. It is important the festival exists in harmony with the local community.

Finally, please don’t spoil it for other people, behave nicely!

CAMRA – THE CAMPAIGN FOR REAL ALE

The Three Valleys Festival is organised by the participating venues working together with a little encouragement and co-ordination from local branches of CAMRA who are happy to support the success of the local beer, cider and pub scene – the organising of the festival is co-ordinated by Rob Barwell and Andy Cullen, both local CAMRA volunteers.

  1. With regard to food The Hub Cafe on Chesterfield Rd Dronfield between The White Swan and The Dronfield Arms will be open all day for eat in and take away food, plus we will be running a BBQ at The White Swan.

    1. Hi Sam,

      children are indeed welcome at Barlow Brewery and soft drinks will be available.

  2. Dear 3 Valley’s Beer Festival,

    My band, Angry Grandad are interested in performing at 2015’s 3 Valley’s Beer Festival, if there are any spaces available.

    We currently do not have anything recorded, other than some live videos, but are getting a few songs recorded in a studio for an EP early next month.

    Here is a few link to our Facebook page:
    https://www.facebook.com/AngryGrandad

    Thankyou!

  3. Hi there,

    I wonder if there is any opportunity for us to have a coffee stall anywhere at the festival?

    Any further info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Caroline
    Couch Coffee & Stuff

    1. I’m sure that would be possible, you need to talk directly to individual venues, perhaps Barlow Brewery may be a good starting point.

  4. Hiya, me and a mate did an acoustic slot for the beer festival at The Miners last year and it went down a storm. We’ve now got a ‘full-on’ band, doing indie/britpop covers (Oasis, Stereophonics, Manics, Foo Fighters, Pulp, Kaiser Chiefs, etc.). We’d love to do the beer festival again. We can do anything from a solo/duet acoustic slot to a full ‘party band’ set. We’re OK to do more than one gig at more than one venue on the same day (e.g. acoustic in the afternoon, electric in the evening). Cheers, Stu

    1. hi, sounds good, I think the only venue not planning music is the Manor House, I suggest contacting venues directly as they are all organising their own.

  5. Dear Sir/Madame,

    We’re contacting you in regards to your Beer Festival in 2015 and would love to find out more about how we could be involved.

    We are a new street food vendor based in Yorkshire serving up Southern States inspired smoked food. We are passionate about using high quality, locally sourced Yorkshire produce to create a unique menu.

    All our food is cooked in an authentic wood smoker, specially imported from America and served from our Airstream style trailer. If you are interested we would be more than happy to meet you to showcase some of our food.

    We’ve got lots more information on our website as well as photos of our trailer and our food: http://www.smokinblues.co.uk.

    Any questions or additional information you may require, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    Hope to speak with you soon.

    Kind Regards,

  6. Dear three valleys team
    This unique band are looking for opportunities to play in 2015. All 3 of us enjoy community events and feel our brand of variety would go down well at your beer festival.
    We play over 20 instruments as part of our set, in many different genres. As well as a variety of ‘tricks’ along the way including juggling, quick instrument changes and playing the violin on top of a free standing ladder.

    please see videos below.

  7. This might seem like one of those weird questions, but do you pay for the beer ?

    I keep seeing festivals listed in The Sheffield Star, but I never know if you just pay an entrance fee which covers the beers cost, so it’s free or you pay a token amount is paid for the beer (e.g. £1 a pint), or if it’s a brewers promotion, to get the public to try a product?

    Curious of Sheffield

    1. Hi Steven,

      yes – you pay for the beer. At most festivals the entry charge is to cover the cost of hiring the venue or putting entertainment on, however at Three Valleys most venues are normal pubs simply offering an extended choice of beers and putting a special event on – therefore beers are normal pub prices and entry is free!

  8. Great even for local businesses however residents have to regularly tidy up after each event which is unacceptable. It wouldn’t get my vote in future…
