Barrow Hill Roundhouse will host the festival, which offers a vast range of real ales, from September 9-11. TV actor and DJ Craig Charles will be headlining the entertainment.

Organisers were forced to cancel last year’s 20th anniversary event due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Commenting on Facebook, Viki Mudds said: “Most people go for the atmosphere, to meet different folk, as well as for the opportunity of sampling different ales that may not be served locally.”

Keith Hamer said: “A few months later than normal but at least it’s going to be on this year.”

To wet your whistle, we’ve been taking a look back at Rail Ale festivals in years gone by when visitors included a bridal party and an MP!
