FINAL preparations are in place for the 2010 Great Yarmouth Beer and Cider Festival being held over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The venue for this, the fourth annual festival, is the historic Priory Centre just north of the Market Place, next to St. Nicholas Church.

The Priory has a wonderful, oak beamed, high ceilinged grand hall that lends itself to a festival celebrating traditional real ales and locally produced ciders.

The event attracts a great deal of interest from independent brewers from around the Norfolk and north Suffolk, with some 40 breweries providing over 100 real ales, bitters and ciders for enthusiasts to sample.
