The annual Sutton Winter Beer Festival is back and set to return for its second outing on Friday.

Held in the 14th Century St Andrew’s Church, the festival was launched as a summer event in 2008 but proved so popular that a winter day was added.

This year’s event runs from 6-11pm on Friday and noon-11pm on Saturday.

New beers and ciders will be available and the usual array of chili, stew, sausage rolls and pork pies will also be on sale each evening. Saturday afternoon’s family session will have a barbecue and a bouncy castle.

Entry to evening sessions is £3 with half-price concessions for designated drivers. Saturday’s family session is free entry.

Beers on the menu this year include Miletree and Moonshine, and Three Blind Mice, which is brewed in Little Downham. Cider from Wicken and Stretham will also be available.

Winter 2015 festival glasses will be on sale at £2 each.

Entertainment will be provided by bands on both evenings, with the Barefoot Doctors and Elements Acoustic Duo scheduled to perform.

All profits go to St Andrew’s Church. The festival has raised more than £7,000 over the last three years’ of summer and winter festivals and organisers are hope to build on that once again this year.
