East Keswick is hosting its 11th beer festival on Saturday October 10 to raise money for the Village Hall.

Beer enthusiasts travel from all over Yorkshire to sample the beers and ales on offer. Starting at noon in the East Keswick Village Hall, punters can tickle their taste buds and taste one of the 20 beers, including old favourites from Ridgeside and Geeves and new beers from Whippet brewery. During the day, guests can listen to the vocal harmony and acoustic delights of Morvyn Andrews and rock band Rough Edge will continue the merriment with some well-known classics.

Anyone who is feeling a little tiddly can tuck into one of the tasty treats on offer.

The entrance fee is just £5 and includes a commemorative glass and programme. There will also be a tempting range of ciders and wine on offer.
