The Weybridge beer festival is fast becomming of the town's favourite annual events attracting beer lovers and rugby fans from all over Surrey. It's a 2 day family friendly event with a great selection of drinks and live music organised and hosted by the Weybridge Vandals Rugby Club on their grounds in Walton-on-Thames.
Their old site had serverd them well, but for 2018 the guys at Weybridge Vandals needed a better website with features specific to running a beer festival.
This year's festival has an impressive selection of real ales, ciders, and locally brewed beers. There was also a new addition to the drinks line up: Gin. Each drink needs to be listed on the website with the name of the brewery, the alcoholic volume, a description, and the name of the drink's sponsor.
Even though most of the drinks at the festival are beer, there is a growing demmand for fine wines, organic ciders, and gins too, so the organisers needed a way to add any type of drink to the website. We built a custom system for them allowing them to easily upload several types of drinks, and allow for changes to the drink menu in the following years.
Visitors to the Weybridge beer fest website need a way to purchase tickets onlie, and the Vandal's prefered system for doing this was called Ticket Source. The new website was created with their existing Ticket Source account built in so they were ready to start selling tickets straight away.
We also added a feature that allows the ticket system to be turned on or off at the click of a button. If tickets are set to 'unavailable' or 'sold out' then the appropriate content on the pages is automatically displayed. This allows them to update several parts of the site in seconds.
