Record numbers turned out to enjoy the fun of the annual Wilburton Beer Festival, which was bathed in sunshine at the weekend.

Crowds relaxed on the lawns whilst sampling the extensive range of beers and ciders and listening to the line-up of local bands.

A barbecue, hog roast and wood-fired pizzas were on offer, while children were kept entertained by the bouncy slide, bungee trampoline, face painting, storytelling and numerous free games.

Burrows Bookshop, All 4 Sports, Wriggletots, Dr B Loon and Jigsaw Dance all came along to provide more fun and to share what they offer locally.

By late Saturday the bar was running dry, so extra supplies were ordered to ensure Sunday was also a success.

Jo Forsyth, of the Wilburton Beer Festival Committee, said: “The main beneficiary this year is Wilburton Primary School for IT equipment, with many other community groups set to benefit.

“Early indications show that a fabulous amount was raised.”
