Another successful food and drink festival was staged by Greene King at the weekend.

The Summer Fest this year saw three nights of live entertainment plus two days of beautifully brewed beer and carefully created food and crafts.

There were 39 different beers and ales on offer including Old Cannon’s Magna Carta, nine brewed by Greene King and a range of flavours from other brewers in the county.

Bangers, fudge, cheese, pies and a host of home grown foods drew admiring crowds to the brewery gardens off Westgate Street while live music played during the daytime.

Performers Mark Logan, Ellie Jamieson, Lucy Sampson and Nik Lowe entertained families and people of all ages who sat and relaxed in the walled garden to enjoy the music.

There was also a chance for visitors to take part in beer tasting, sessions about the art of brewing and how best to match food and beer.

Crafts and garden exhibitors were also a draw during the daytime events which were free to enter.

The three ticketed events in the evenings went well with 60s cover bands on the Friday night, a sell out Queen Tribute band on Saturday and comedy on Sunday which featured Radio 4’s Mitch Benn.

This was the fifth event and attracted 4,000 visitors through the gates.
