Lancaster Beer and Drinks Festival celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, with more on offer than ever before.
The festival, which has raised over £340,000 for local charities since its inception, takes place on March 6, 7 and 8 from 6pm to midnight at Lancaster Town Hall.
Most of the beer sold out last year, so organisers have been busy making sure the beer racks are well stocked, with a wider selection of bottled beer and ciders too.
There will be over 60 draft beers, more than 25 lagers and bottled beers, wine, soft drinks, food and the increasingly popular cider bar with a broad selection of ciders brought up from the west country to compliment the other ciders on sale.
There will also be live entertainment each night of the festival, with a Bay Radio broadcast, “mentalist and memory performer” Chris Rawlins walking around the crowd, and music from The Groove Cutters. On Friday March 7 there will be music from Sold to the Sky, with a performance from 24/7 on the Saturday night.
A spokesman from the festival, which is run by Lancaster Round Table said: “Lancaster Beer Festival has helped to raise over £340,000 for local charities and worthwhile causes over the last 25 years and none of this would have been possible without the help from everyone who has visited the Beerfest during that time and of course the generous sponsors who regularly support the Beerfest.
“So, if you want to join in on Lancaster Beer and Drinks Festival’s 25th Birthday and help raise money for local charities too, come and join Lancaster Round Table; the founders and volunteers who work hard to make this Festival happen each year, and raise a glass to this fine annual event, while drinking responsibly of course.”
