The doors opened this afternoon to let the first thirsty beer-lovers try the huge range of ales on offer at Barrow Hill Roundhouse's annual event.

Tonight, music fans can enjoy a special one-off show when, the UK’s number one ABBA tribute band “ABBA Revival” are appearing at Barrow Hill Roundhouse for one night only.

Following in the footsteps of the likes of Jools Holland, Marc Almond, Rick Wakeman and Mel C, the Chesterfield venue will play host to this acclaimed popular tribute act on the opening night of Rail Ale 2019.
