A north Norfolk brewery has thought of an innovative way for many people to be able to socialise in the same place despite the coronavirus rules.

Wildcraft Brewery in Buxton has been running ‘pop-up pub’ events fortnightly - including today (September 19) - where groups of up to six can sit in a field in specially marked out squares.

Mike Deal, who owns the brewery along with Mark Goodman, said they had 25 3mx3m or 4mx4m, each separated by two metres, marked out.

He said: “Because of the new ‘rule of six’ we’ve set it up so people can have a nice, socially distanced been in small groups. It will be on until the weather changes, and we’re looking at having some sort of undercover event for later in the year.”

Norfolk bands Get Loaded and DJ Hipology Sounds are playing later at today’s event, which runs until 10pm.

As long as their own brews, drinks from other Proudly Norfolk members is also on offer, and pizza from Nomadi Pizza is available.
