Organisers of this year’s Bramham Beer Festival are toasting success after bringing in £3000 to go towards the general upkeep of the village hall.

The event attracted around 500 people throughout the day and casks were emptied and several of the bottled beers were sold out.

A spokesman for the festival said: “The funds will also go towards the restoration of the old caretaker’s cottage which adjoins the hall and needs total refurbishment in order to make it suitable for the rental market thereby providing a steady income for the hall.

“Most of the work is being done by volunteers from the village in their spare time.”

Festival goers enjoyed pie and peas, pasties and bacon and sausage butties.

Musical entertainment of various genres – folk, rock and modern – was provided by local musicians Nyk Hall and Gavin Dickson.
