The 17th annual Wilburton Beer Festival returns to the region this weekend for two days of live music.

The event which is run by volunteers will take place on Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21 and will offer a variety of food stalls and children’s entertainment.

The festival is this year themed on the Rugby World Cup and boasts around 35 varieties of beer from around the country and local breweries, as well as a variety of local ciders, Pimms and Prosecco.

There will be live music from local bands Blue Thunder and Trojan Broom who will headline the event on Saturday evening.

Food options include a BBQ, hog roast and wood-fired pizza, while children’s activities include a bouncy slide, zorbing, face painting, story telling and rides on toys.

Arts and crafts tents and sports competitions will also feature over the weekend and all of the money raised will be donated to fund local community-run clubs.

The festival will be held at Wilburton Recreation Ground on June 20 from 12pm-midnight and from 12-6pm on Sunday, June 21.
