A POPULAR Wolverley beer bash promises to be bigger and better than ever when it returns next weekend.

Wolverley Memorial Project’s 3rd Beer Festival will run for three days from 6pm on Friday, September 22, showcasing more than 40 local beers, ales, lagers and ciders as well as live music throughout from acts who have offered their services for free.

It will be held at Wolverley Memorial Hall and has been organised to raise funds for the redevelopment of the community site.

A new feature for 2017 will be a gin bar which will feature a range of British gins, including some made locally.

Friday and Saturday will be dedicated to beer and music, with a traditional Oompah band on Saturday evening.

On Sunday, the Velo race passes right by the Memorial Hall, with the venue listed as an official viewing point. People will be able to enjoy the family day as well as cheer on the cyclists.

Opening times for the festival are 6-11pm on Friday, 12noon-11pm on Saturday and 12noon to 6pm on Sunday.

All weekend there will be hot and cold food on sale, alongside the array of beers, ciders and gins, as well as wine and Prosecco.

Organisers are encouraging people to take advantage of the Early Bird booking discount price of £15, which includes entry with wristband valid for all three days, as well as a limited edition souvenir glass and an eight token card, worth four pints of beer, lager or cider - also valid for wine and gin drinks purchases).
