Real ale and cider lovers are raising a glass in Great Yarmouth at the town's fourth annual beer festival.

More than 1,000 people are expected to sample the festival's 120 beers and ciders that are on tap in the Priory Centre by St Nicholas' Church.

The festival runs until tomorrow night and its Yarmouth-based organisers, the Blackfriars Brewery and Town Centre Partnership, predict record-breaking numbers of people will attend the event.

Beer enthusiasts were certainly in the party mood as they sampled a World Cup-themed beer Glory Daze and tried out the wide range of drinks available from local breweries and from breweries in Essex, Nottinghamshire and Grimsby.
