Record Numbers attend Our Beer festival


We recorded 925 visitors to the festival with a good geographic spread across the East Midlands and further afield.

I was a good event and we will be having talks if we can do it again all next year. As they say watch this space.

Thanks to all our sponsors and we hope we can count on you again next time.
