The annual event will take place from May 16 to 18 at the Drill House on York Road with CAMRA supporting a ‘Best of’ awards and Lacons as lead supporting brewery.

Organisers have said there will be a range of beers and ciders from breweries across the region including casks from Lacons.

Emily Phillips, festival organiser and communications and development manager of SeaChange Arts, said: “We are all really excited about being the hosting venue this year.

“The festival has not been at the Drill House since 2012 and the building has since significantly transformed into a stunning venue for events like this.

“We will provide a comfortable layout and add street food traders and live entertainment to the mix. I wish to celebrate the abundant variety of local breweries so there will be plenty for customers to sample.”

Guests will be able to choose from a full range of ale styles, lagers and ciders.
