Preparations are underway once more for Lancaster BeerFest.

The event, now in its 24th year, is taking place from Thursday March 7 to Saturday March 9 at Lancaster Town Hall, and will run from 6pm to midnight each evening.

Sixty cask ales will be available, with 45 from Lancashire or south Cumbria with the rest coming from around the country.

The Lancashire and south Cumbria ales will be competing for the prestigious Lancashire Cup, awarded to the county’s best drink.

BeerFest will be accompanied by live entertainment each night, with covers band Two Stroke Diesel on the Thursday, followed by Sold to the Sky and 24/7 on the following evenings.

Entry is £5, and includes a commemorative glass and programme.
