More than 2,000 pints were pulled at a beer festival in North Norfolk at the weekend.

The 11th annual Aylsham Beer Festival, held at the town's Old Cinema on Cawston Road, boasted a selection of 40 real ales and 15 ciders.

The three-day event is estimated to have raised around £5,000 for local good causes, with some of the funds raised being used to restore the kitchen at the popular community hub.

Paul Wright, vice-chairman of Aylsham and District Round Table, who organised the event, said: 'The best bit of the weekend was Saturday night with the live music, it was really busy. At the first festival there were just five or six real ales, now we have 40.'

And he added: 'There is still an appetite for it.'
