Event Organiser, Ian Whittaker said: “We had such a great time at last years' Music and Ale Festival, we can't wait for this one. We have lined up some amazing local talent to play, and will be stocking the bar with delicious ales and ciders. It was lovely to see so many local faces at last years event, can't wait to see everyone again at this festive time.
