The beer and cider flowed and the new Pimms and Prosecco tent went down a storm as thousands of pounds was raised for good causes over the course of the two-day event, held at the weekend.

Live music played continually and children had fun on the bouncy castles and slide, zorbing balls, story telling, face-painting and straw area.

Kevin Hennessy, Wilburton Beer Festival chairman said: “We had a record turnout this year and there was a fabulous atmosphere, we really could not be happier.

“The festival has really grown in recent years and early calculations indicate that we have again raised thousands of pounds for local clubs and charities. We cannot wait to do it all again in 2016.”
