Beer festival back at Rastrick

The second Rastrick Beer Festival takes place on September 21/22 at St John’s Church Hall.

Proceeds will go towards the church and local charities.

Organising committee chairman Roger Ellis said: “We learned a lot from our first festival and we are working hard to put into practice all that we learned so we can make our second one just as successful and enjoyable.”

This year a tented area will also be sited in the garden area outside the hall.

The festival will feature a wide selection of national and local beers.

There will also be ciders and food will be available along with musical entertainment.

Last year visitors travelled from all over Calderdale and beyond and Mr Ellis said the location close to the railway station encouraged people to travel by train.

“We are urging everyone to come along and support us like they did last year,” said Mr Ellis.

“It promises to be a first class and very enjoyable event.”
