The Apex in Bury St Edmunds to host East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival next weekend
The East Anglian Beer and Cider Festival is returning to Bury St Edmunds next weekend, with 150 real ales and 30 ciders on offer.
The programme for the four-day event, which starts on May 1 at The Apex and in Charter Square, includes 'meet the brewer' and 'meet the maltster' sessions as well as book signings and a talk with beer writer Roger Protz.
Various food stalls including the Crusty Pie company, Tommy Sore sausages and Carduso's Kitchen will be offering tasty treats to guests, who can also enjoy live music from the Sound Stage.
For those who don't like beer and cider or just fancy something a little more fruity, there will also be a Pimm's and Prosecco stand.
St Nicholas Hospice Care has been named as the nominated charity for the event.
George Chilvers, St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Community Fundraising Manager, said: “We would like to say a big cheers to the festival organisers for choosing to fundraise for the Hospice.
“Our volunteers will be helping out at the festival, clearing glasses, pulling pints and giving
festival goers the opportunity to donate to the hospice.”
