Now in its third year the event, organised by the Blackfriars Brewery, will be held in the Priory Centre, next to St Nicholas Church, from Thursday to Sunday.

During evenings, live music will entertain the beer-loving crowd.

Blackfriars owner Bill Russell said: 'With our biggest selection of beers and ciders yet, great entertainment and hopefully some nice weather, it should be a resounding success.'

t Tickets are available on the door priced �3 for lunchtime and �4 for evening sessions. The festival runs from 5pm to 11pm on Thursday and 11am to 3pm and 5pm to 11pm from Friday to Sunday.
