DRINKERS knocked back the pints in record numbers at the bank holiday weekend's Great Yarmouth Beer and Cider Festival, it emerged this week.
Brilliant sunshine helped draw the biggest crowds yet to four-day event, held at the Priory Centre.
Attendances were more than a fifth up on last year as real- ale enthusiasts savoured tipples from Norfolk and north Suffolk independent brewers.
Crowds also enjoyed music and comedy throughout the event, organised by Black-friars Brewery and Yarmouth Town Centre Partnership.

Town centre manager Jona-than Newman said: “The fantastic weather helped boost numbers, and at times we were struggling to cope with demand. The atmosphere was really friendly, and a wide range of ages enjoyed the excellent selection of beers and ciders. There was also a lot of interest from holiday visitors, who saw the signs up and came to have a look.”
Mayor Tony Smith officially opened the three-day festival, which featured about 100 ales and more than 20 ciders.
