THERE are now just under three weeks to go until this year's tenth annual Bromsgrove Beer Festival.
The event, organised by the Redditch and Bromsgrove branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale), takes place at Bromsgrove Rugby Club from 5pm to 11pm on Friday, June 29, and between 11am and 9pm on Saturday, June 30. There will be entertainment from Blackwell Concert Band and the White Hart Morris Men on the Saturday. And, on the Thursday, June 28, from 6pm to 11pm, there will be an evening for CAMRA members.
Redditch and Bromsgrove CAMRA chairman Paul Richards said the festival would be a great opportunity for residents to try traditional beers and ciders they would not normally find in the pub.
"So if you’ve never been to a beer festival before, why not make this your first?"
As well as boasting more than 100 ales, along with 45 ciders and perries and fruit wines, the festival will also be raising funds and awareness of the Bromsgrove branch of the Royal British Legion.
The cash collected will go towards the charity which provides practical and emotional support to serving members of the armed forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
Admission, which includes a festival glass and programme, is just £5 and there is a discount for card-carrying CAMRA members. Food will be available at all sessions and other drinks will be available from the Rugby Club.
