The weekend was a treat for real ale enthusiasts, as the Triangle Cricket Club Beer Festival returned for another year.

The festival, now in its seventh year, was the perfect opportunity for visitors to indulge in a wide selection of local and regional ales, as well as four real ciders.

Tim Muir, one of the organisers of the festival, said: “Friday night was packed out and we had around 250 people here on the opening night.

“Some people had travelled from further afield and there’s been a fantastic atmosphere - everyone has enjoyed themselves and enjoyed being in each other’s company.”

The funds raised from the festival will be put towards the running of the cricket club.

The Bailiff Bridge Beer FestivALE was also in full swing over the weekend.
