Archant

Almost 1,000 beer-lovers sampled over 150 ales at this year’s Elgood & Sons beer festival in Wisbech.

The festival, now in its seventh year, welcomed 900 people over three days, and all were treated to some of country’s finest ales, porters and stouts.

Entertainment was provided by Dr Busker and Bewildered as well as up-and-coming local band, Animal Bar. Local folk band The Rusty Relics also showcased their talents on Saturday.

The not-for-profit festival raised £2,000, which will be donated to local causes Raveneswood Pet Rescue, Rare Brain Tumour Research, Norfolk Hospice Tapping House and the Ferry Project.

Next year’s festival will take place from Thursday September 20 to Saturday 22.
