Hundreds enjoy seventh Aylsham beer festival

Hundreds of people indulged in a tipple at Aylsham's annual beer festival at the weekend while raising a glass for charity.

Now in its seventh year the two-day event is organised by the town's Round Table and raises money for local charities.

Chairman and organiser James Marks said the event had gone 'really well' and was pleased with how many people came to support the festival.

'Friday night was especially crazy and it was so busy,' he said.

'A lot of people also came up with new ideas for us to try next year which we will be looking at doing.'

Mr Marks believed Friday and Saturday's event had raised in excess of �3000 which will go towards local charities. Last year the Round Table donated money to causes such as the Grace Matthews Trust Fund, Aylsham Youth Club's refurbishment of toilets and the high school's awards night.
