Over 30 barrels of Yorkshire beers and ciders will be on offer from breweries across the county at the seventh annual event.

Among those featured are beers such as Rattus Rattus (Rat, Huddersfield); Cattle Prod (Dr Mortons, Sheffield); Neapolitan Milk Stout (Riding Brewery, Scarborough) and In Bruges (Rudgate, Tockwith) which will sit alongside the award winning ciders from Orchards of Husthwaite.

For those whose tipple is not beer, there will be wine, cider, as well as soft drinks and for the third year the popular Prosecco Bar.

To help soak up the beers we are serving Setchfield’s renowned pies and pasties. To finish the event we have music from the popular group ‘This Way Up’.

Spokesman Martin Ward of Bardsey Village Hall Development Committee said: “For the seventh year Reward Capital has stepped forward as our major sponsor.

“Other key sponsors who have helped us raise over £40k are Clarion Solicitors, JM Glendinning, HLW Keeble Hawson, Murray Harcourt, Park Lane Homes and WTJ Insurance. As a result of their generosity we have extended and refurbished the Village Hall.”

Major sponsors and their guests will be entertained on Friday March 24, the day before the Festival.

Tickets, £5, and the festival starts on noon to 9pm.
