Thousands of pints of beer and cider were enjoyed on Saturday as part of the 12th annual Wicken Beer Festival.

Among the entertainment on offer was live music, real ales, real lagers, pickled pig ciders, wine and soft drinks, as well as a BBQ with locally-produced sausages and burgers from Tyler Butchers.

The beer festival was launched in 2004 by a group of volunteers aiming to raise funds to improve the recreation ground in the village.

Since then the festival has raised more than £30,000, with the money being put towards the ongoing development of the multi-use games area and the play areas.
