Pints are set to make pounds next month at the 2013 Aylsham Round Table beer festival.

One of the highlights of the local real ale scene, the festival will be held from April 12-14 at the Old Cinema, Cawston Road, Aylsham.

Over the last three years, members have donated over £10,000 to good causes from the proceeds of the festival, which features 35 real ales - mostly from Norfolk - 12 ciders, red and white wine and soft drinks.

Drinkers can choose from three starter packs when they arrive at the festival: Bronze, which comprises entry, souvenir glass and two pints of your choice for £10; Silver, including entry, souvenir glass and four pints of your choice for £15; Gold, which includes entry, souvenir glass and six pints of your choice for £20.

Opening times are:

■ Friday April 12 - 6pm to 11pm

■ Saturday April 13 - 11am to 11pm

■ Sunday April 14 - 11am to 2pm.

Sponsor packages - starting at £99 - include your company name on a barrel, two starter packs, half an A5 page in the tasting notes and advertising on Aylsham Round Table’s website for one year.

Chairman Graham Fryer said: “Please sponsor the weekend as we need your help to carry on helping local good causes around the Aylsham area.”
