The man at the helm of a Norwich pub said its annual Valentine beer festival had been a 'resounding success'.
The Trafford pub has just held its 23rd annual Valentine beer festival, which was also the first for Nick De'Ath since he took over the running of the Grove Road pub last year.
Mr De'Ath said: 'It was fantastic. It was a real success. We sold out of all the beer we bought for it.
'We had groups of people who had come up on the train especially for the festival, a group who last year went to 42 different beer festivals and we were their sixth of this year.'
The event, which was a started by previous landlord Chris Higgins, helps to raise money for a local charity and is this year helping It's On the Ball, a Norwich-based testicular cancer charity which is also being supported by Mr Death's other pubs, the Lawyer and Unthank Arms.
Mr De'Ath said the festival was 'definitely something that will keep going' in years to come.
He said: 'The Trafford is well known for its beer festival and its something we're not going to look to stop.'
