Botesdale pub set for beer festival
Thousands of pints of ale and cider are set to be washed down on the May Day bank holiday when the Greyhound at Botesdale hosts its 7th beer festival.
Last year saw in excess of 1,200 people pass through the doors of the pub near Diss over the four days and consume 4,000 pints of beer.
This year the festival, which will take place between April 28 and May 1, has been extended to five days to cope with demand and to coincide with the royal wedding, with the focus being on East Anglian brewers.
Thirty real ales and ciders will be on offer from small brewers as well as 12 different champagnes.
On Thursday, the doors open at 5pm with the buskers night, which will be hosted by ex-Manfred man guitarist and Mellis publican Denny Newman.
