Ale lovers in Norwich can look forward to the launch of an annual beer festival at a city pub next week.

Regulars at the Trafford Arms pub will be able to taste more than 70 beers and ales as part of its Valentine Beer Festival which kicks off on Monday.

It is the 24th time the Grove Road pub has held the week-long festival, held every February, which also helps to raise money for a local charity.

Nick De'Ath, who took over the running of the pub in 2015, said: 'This has been going for over 20 years now. Last year was a great success and hopefully this one will be even better. We've got music on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.'

Like last year, the pub will be raising money for On the Ball, a Norwich-based testicular cancer charity.
