Flex your arm muscles in the Hebden Bridge Town Hall Beer and Cider Festival.

Over the first May bank holiday weekend residents and visitors to the town are invited to tantalise their tastebuds with an array of local hand crafted beers and artisan ciders from local brewers Bridestones Brewing, Little Valley Brewery, The Real Cider Company and Slightly Foxed.

The festival, which has returned for a second year running following last year’s success, will run from May 1 - 3 - which coincides with the much anticipated Tour de Yorkshire.

Friday night will kick off at its Trade Night, from 4-8pm and from noon Saturday and Sunday. Live music will entertain crowds throughout the festival.

Martin Ogley from Bridestones Brewery, said: “The fact the Tour is coming through the same weekend is perfect timing and we hope cycling crowds will join us for the perfect pint.”

Hebden Bridge Town Hall director Amy Leader, said: “Local businesses are working hard together to showcase some of the finest local beer and cider.”
