Lancashire real ale fans will be flexing elbows in preparation for Preston’s 22nd Annual Beer Festival next month.

From Thursday March 12 to Saturday 14 beer buffs will be making a ‘beerline’ for the Parish Centre of St Walburge’s in Ashton.

The festival is an opportunity to spend time in a great historic building, drink a great variety of beers and enjoy great music.

There will also be food courtesy of the festival catering team. The event will raise funds for ongoing restoration work at the site, and to support projects which will enhance the use of the Church Hall by the wider community.

A spokesman said: “Come along and enjoy a beer (or a few) knowing you are helping maintain a piece of history.”
