THE organisers of a popular beer festival have promised that this year’s event will be “bigger and better” than ever.

The fourth Bracknell Ale and Wine Festival will take place later this month at Bracknell Town Football Club and is expected to be the biggest in the event’s history, with 25 real ales on offer – five more than last year.

A selection of wines and cider will also be available at the event on Sunday, May 25 , as well as live music from a variety of local acts.

A hog roast stand will appear at the festival for the very first time, joining the usual barbecue.

With more than 500 people expected to attend, the organisers have come prepared for all weather types.

In case of bad weather, several large marquees will be built on the pitch to shield visitors from the rain.

Co-organiser Tom Canning, who runs the event with Michael Keen, said: “This year is bigger and better than ever before.

“We have got so much going on, and we would like to encourage people to come along no matter what the weather is like.

“We want a good mix of people to come. There is a misconception that older people enjoy these events but historically we have seen lots of young people come along too.”

The event will be at the Larges Lane football club’s pitch, from 1pm until late, on Sunday, May 25.

Tickets are £5, concessions £2,50. Card-carrying CAMRA members get in free, along with members of Bracknell Town FC, Bracknell Bees, Bracknell Rugby Club, Binfield FC, Wokingham & Emmbrook, Ascot United and all local sports clubs. Any profits raised from the event will be reinvested into the club.
