Bardsey is hosting its ever popular Beer Festival in the Village Hall on Saturday and people are urged not to miss out on the fun.

Over 30 barrels of Yorkshire beers and ciders are on offer from breweries across the county, including Collingham Brewer, from noon to 10pm.

Beers such as Alphabetti Forghetti – (Dr Mortons, Sheffield); Rocking Wren – (Bird Brain, Howden) and Sunshine – (Brass Castle, Malton) sit alongside the award winning ciders from Orchards of Husthwaite.

For those whose tipple is not beer, there is wine, cider as well as soft drinks and for the second year there will be a Prosecco Bar.

To help soak up the beers there will be Setchfield’s renowned pies and pasties. To finish the event popular group This Way Up will perform.

“On behalf of the Bardsey Village Hall Development Committee we hope beer and drink lovers will come along and enjoy the day,” said festival spokesman Gill Swaby.

Gill added that key sponsors, including major sponsor for the past six years, Reward Capital, have helped raise over £30,000 which has helped to extend and refurbish the village hall.

The entry fee to the Beer Festival is £5 which includes a festival glass and programme.
