There will be more than 150 different cask beers, ciders, perries and bottled conditioned beers from across Europe and the USA on sale, as well as music every day.

Organiser Jim Flynn said: “The use of the stadium gives festival goers the guarantee of a seat and the chance to drink outside during what it is to be hoped will be balmy summer days and evenings while downstairs great live entertainment is promised in the large entertainment suite.

“In addition, as always, there an especially brewed festival ale, stalls, programme, souvenir T-shirts and glasses, and hot and cold food. Families are very welcome in the stand and limited disabled access is available.”
