Twenty real ales and ciders will be served up at a new beer festival in Fakenham which begins tonight.

The festival is being organised by town councillor Lisa Smerdon and her partner Glen Mallett, with support from volunteers from Kick Start Fakenham.

Miss Smerdon said: 'We're trying to get lots of things going on in the town and we're really hoping that people come along and support this beer festival. If it goes well we will look to run it every year.'

The festival will be from 7pm until 11pm tonight and 11am until 11pm tomorrow.

Entrance is free. People can pay �10 for a commemorative glass and six tokens, with each token worth half a pint. Alternatively, two tokens are available for �2.50 and they can be exchanged for beer, cider, wine or soft drinks.

Proceeds will go to Fakenham Community Centre and Kick Start Fakenham.
